Love animals? Want a rewarding challenge? Come and volunteer with us at Cyprus Pride House! Here’s what volunteering involves:
WHAT WE REQUIRE
Firstly, volunteering with us is really hard work – it is not a holiday. The needs of the animals come first and everything we do revolves around their care and well-being.
- Personal qualities: Healthy, energetic, honest, hard-working and organised. A passion for animals is a must. Non-smokers only. We need someone who can work on their own initiative, being responsible and dedicated to their duties.
- Experience: Full training is given. People with animal experience and knowledge are preferred.
- Minimum stay: Two weeks.
- Cleaning up after the pets, including the kennels and cattery.
- Walking dogs in the tranquil countryside.
- Interaction, cuddling and play.
- General maintenance.
HOURS OF WORK
Hours can vary and are not set. This is a guideline, as it depends on what animals we have at the time and their individual needs.
- 7 am to 10 am.
- 12 noon to 1 pm.
- 4 pm to 6 pm.
- 10 pm to 11 pm.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
- Non-smoking accommodation here in our home at Cyprus Pride House.
- Everything needed for the animals.
- Airport transfers.
- A warm welcome!
WHAT YOU NEED TO ORGANISE
- Arrange and pay for your flight to Limassol (we can pick up/drop off at the airport).
- Money for your food, drink and general spends.
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 45 mins drive away.
WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS SAY
- Here’s what Josie Arnold, one of our lovely volunteers, said about her stay with us:
Working for June and Michael at 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 as well as June and Michael. If you’re up for a challenge and willing to put the animals first then I fully recommend you plan your volunteer visit today!”
