Volunteers are always needed to help us look after the animals, some of the roles include:
Beach feeding during the monsoon (May-October) when stray beach dogs are at risk of starvation. Even offering to do this once a week can make a big difference
To support ongoing adoptions, making sure pets get their vaccinations, de-worming and STERILIZATION when they are due
Assist in catching stray animals for sterilisation and helping with their post-operative care
Helping at the cow shelter with feeding, cleaning and grooming
Playing, feeding, walking, grooming, training and looking after the cats and dogs at our shelter
Volunteers are also needed to assist with fundraising activities, networking, collecting donations and administrative support.
With more volunteers, we will be able to reach out to areas of Goa that we are currently unable to address.
If you or anyone you know would be willing to donate some of your time to help these animals in times of need, we would be most grateful.
