What We Require From You

Volunteering with us is really hard work – IT IS NOT A HOLIDAY. This needs to be said right at the start – we need special people to give the animals what they need and have a dedication to our rescue. The needs of the animals come first and everything we do revolves around their care and well-being.

Are you:

  • Healthy, energetic, honest, hard-working and organised.
  • An animal lover with a passion for animals.
  • A non-smoker.
  • Able to work on their initiative, being responsible and dedicated to their duties. People with animal experience and knowledge are preferred – however, we do give you full training on the work and our standards.
  • 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 us best.

Daily Duties

  • Cleaning up after the pets, including the kennels and cattery.
  • Feeding.
  • 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 and are not set. This is a guideline only, as it depends on what animals are here at the time and their individual needs.

  • 8 am to 10 am.
  • 12 noon to 1 pm.
  • 4 pm to 6 pm.

What We Provide

  • Non-smoking accommodation here in our home at Cyprus Pride House.
  • Everything that is needed for the animals, including their food, treatments and medication.
  • Training and experience. If you are looking for a career in animal welfare, volunteering at our rescue is an excellent way to learn hands-on what it really involves.
  • Airport transfers.
  • 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 Limassol (we can pick you up and drop you off at the airport).
  • Money for your food, drink and general spending.

Location

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 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.

If you love animals and would like a challenging, but rewarding experience, get in touch – we’d love your help.
