PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROJECT IS NOW FULL FROM 1ST JULY TO 15TH AUGUST 2016. NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS FOR THIS PERIOD CAN BE ACCEPTED.

Volunteers are urgently needed to contribute their time and energy at a wonderful Animal Rescue Shelter in Tirana. The shelter, situated in a village in the suburbs of Tirana City, was set up to rescue the sick, injured and endanger animals of Tirana and the wider region. The shelter provides these animals with safe haven - a loving and caring home – and it is the only animal shelter in the entire region!

Sadly, there are horrifying incidents every day where injured, sick, and/or mistreated animals require rescue and immediate care, so the shelter takes care of these animals. There are currently approximately 200 animals at this centre, and as it receives no government support, it relies heavily on donations from kind-hearted individuals and the assistance of international volunteers to stay in operation.

Due to the large number of animals accommodated in this facility the cats stay in the main facility, which doubles as a veterinary clinic, and have access to an outdoor enclosure. Meanwhile the dogs are housed outside in kennels with straw-covered floors. They have space to move around as well as shade from trees that were planted by the staff and previous volunteers, but space is limited and the shelter is desperately in need of expansion.

The Animal Shelter is looking desperately for assistance from international volunteers, and welcomes all those willing to help out with a variety of activities including: cleaning, feeding, maintenance, and caring for the animals. Vets also are welcomed to help with the injured or sick animals.

Volunteers who choose to participate in this project will be accommodated in the volunteer house in Tirana with volunteers from our other local projects. Breakfast is provided daily.

Join us on this wonderful project and help us protect the helpless animals of Albania!
