What you'll do
If you really want a hands on Animal experience, volunteers are needed here in every area. You can try any of the daily tasks we do to help our fury friends and in that way better understand how much devotion and love volunteer work is driven by. We will start a day by briefing you about the tasks needed to be done, incl. safety rules, and how to work with senior dogs. After that you will meet our lovely dogs that you can take for a walk, bath, brush or even clear their ears. Later you can also join us in cleaning and gardening. After the fulfilling day, we'll offer you refreshing drink or beer and small snacks. Do you dare? It's not easy, but trust me that this heart melting experience will become part of you.

I'm Jaime, founder and president of Voluntarios Itinerantes. Over past year we have collaborated with numerous shelters and have organized over 200 volunteer days and over 300 volunteers have joined us. «We go and we help» is our motto, and this is exactly what we do. The needs are similar at every shelter, but the priorities are not. Some need the dogs to be walked and socialized, others need us to clean and organize their facilities. Some reach out to us because they need medication or food or to build fences or create spaces where the animals can live in better conditions. And we are there to help.
