Volunteers

We can't do our job without volunteers...

And that's the truth. Without the support of our volunteers we can't mean nearly as much to our animals as we'd want to. That's why help is always welcome!
Do you have at least 3 hours per week to help us out, and do you like to work with animals? Then you're at the right place!

We are looking for all kinds of volunteers; you really don't need to have experience with dogs or cats, and even with a cat alergy you're very much welcome! Also if you are scared of dogs, but still want to contribute, there's enough to do.

We offer our volunteers the possibility to grow and once a month you get a free training! We have fun meetings to discuss how we can improve anything and there's plenty of room for input and creativity.

Below, you can find several vacancies for volunteers. Do you think you could help us out with one or more roles? Send us an email or call us for an appointment. You get to tag along for half a day to see how you like working with us.

We hope to meet you soon!
