About Program

Volunteer in Greece at an animal shelter in Athens!

Our charity was created in 2005 by 25 persons that love animals. Today, our active membership is approximately a dozen persons with a majority of the shelter work being done by a handful of volunteers. We are legally registered and can provide tax receipts for all donations.

We operate a temporary shelter located in the Old Zoo in the central park of Nea Filadelphia (Dekeleias & Troados Street). (Directions to closest Metro Station Perissos or by Bus Routes.)

Daily we are caring for over 50+ dogs in our Shelter and dozens scattered throughout the neighbourhood. Cats and kittens are fostered by our members as we have no shelter space for them.

Animal Lover? Help this Group - You will Learn So Much!

Even though this program is very barebones, it is a grassroots movement to help the strays in Greece, that is gaining momentum. Located in a small northern Athens community of Neas Filadelpheas, this shelter is 9 cages and lots of trees. It is run by 100% devoted founders who save the strays often to the detriment of their own health and financial wellbeing. 100% volunteer funded. Maria and Kiki speak very good english and can help you get orientated and assist you with finding your niche within the shelter volunteer environment. There is no room/board offered but you can volunteer for a few hours a day in conjunction with school or working in the city. Please help this group because they are making change in a country where animal abuse is rampant and need all the help they can get!
