Assist an amazing center that provides care, treatment and sterilization to stray cats and dogs to a community in South Africa. The project works to provide education to the community and provide a safer environment for animals without homes.
Volunteers assist with tasks such as the cleaning and maintenance of the animal housing areas, walking the dogs, feeding, or even just spending time playing with the animals in order to reintegrate them with people. Volunteers also work on coordinating and assisting with fundraising events and initiatives. Time spent with the adorable puppies is always volunteers’ favourite aspect of this project! This program is a wonderful experience for international volunteers who will learn so much from the passionate staff and the amazing people and cultures who combine in this fantastic community. Volunteers will generally work from 08:30am –12:30pm, Monday to Friday, giving them plenty of time to explore the beautiful city of Cape Town. Volunteers on this program will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks: Feed and play with the animals Clean animal houses and kennels Walk the dogs Work on fundraising initiatives
