What I Require From You
Volunteering is really hard work – IT IS NOT A HOLIDAY. This needs to be said right at the start – I need special people to give the animals what they need and have a dedication to my rescue. The needs of the animals come first and everything I do revolves around their care and well-being.
- Healthy, energetic, honest, hard-working and organised.
- An animal lover with a passion for animals.
- A non-smoker.
- Able to work on own initiative, being responsible and dedicated to duties. People with animal experience and knowledge are preferred – however, I will give you full training on the work and the standards required.
- Able to carry out tasks to the best of your ability and ask for help when needed.
- Able to stay at least two weeks – it takes a few days to learn what is needed, so two weeks helps me best.
- Cleaning up after the pets, including the kennels and cattery.
- Walking dogs in the tranquil countryside.
- Interaction, cuddling and play – our pets really benefit from love and attention.
- General maintenance.
Hours of Work
Hours can vary. This is a guideline only, as it depends on what animals are here at the time and their individual needs:
- 7.30 am to 11 am
- 4 pm to 6 pm
- 9 pm to 10 pm
What We Provide
- Non-smoking accommodation here in my home at Cyprus Pride House.
- Training and experience. If you are looking for a career in animal welfare, volunteering at my rescue is an excellent way to learn hands-on what it really involves.
- A warm welcome! Your time and effort are appreciated and we will support and value it.
What You Need to Organise
- Arrange and pay for your flight to Cyprus (I can pick you up and drop you off at the airport if the petrol costs are met).
- Money for your food, drink and general spending.
We live in the Troodos Mountains, Cyprus, where it is peaceful and tranquil. There is a village nearby, as well as a supermarket, places to eat and wineries. The main town is a 45-minute drive away.
“Working for Cyprus Pride House – this is probably one of the hardest things I’ve willingly done; however, one of the most rewarding. If you have a passion for animals then this is the place for you. Although challenging, building a friendship with the animals was what made it worth it. You’ll notice that each cat and dog has a different personality and you’ll fall in love with every one of them, I certainly did. I’m never going to forget my time at the shelter and I’ll always cherish the memories I made with the animals. If you’re up for a challenge and willing to put the animals first then I fully recommend you plan your volunteer visit today!” – Josie Arnold, CPH volunteer.
