    We can't do this without support in Karpathos!

    Animal Welfare Karpathos is an all volunteer organization and your help is welcomed and appreciated.

    • Adoption coordinators
    • Event coordinators
    • Assist with Trap-Neuter-Release Programs

     

    Our volunteers on the island may be called upon to help with a rescue situation, check on an animal in distress, or assist a local veterinarian with triage of an animal that needs our help.

    Volunteer: Foster - In Karpathos or Athens

    Helping our animals before they find their forever home

    Foster volunteers are responsible for the intake of sick animals or baby animals who need additional help.

     

    Training will be provided for basic medical care before someone can officially take on this responsibility.

     

    Given that a shelter does not exist on our island yet, foster parents are integral for the work that we do.

     

    Whether it is taking care of sick animals or newborn puppies and kittens, or being a temporary home for an animal that will be traveling for adoption- we need your help!
     

    Virtual Volunteer: Global

    No matter where you are, you can help.

    Most of our team is global. Having people working on specific, skill-based items can help us immensely. Let us know your interests and existing skills and we can find something for you to help us with!

    Volunteer: Fundraising - In Karpathos & Global

    Money makes the world go round, unfortunately

    As a non for profit organization we rely solely on donations for our day to day operation and rescue work. Fundraising events are a fun way to connect with the community while at the same time raising funds to support our work.

     

    Depending on your availability your commitment can be for the day of the event, or you can choose to be part of the event committee to help with the coordination and execution of our plans.
     

    Volunteer: Flight Escorts

    Helping our animals get to their forever homes!

    During summer and winter we look for flight escorts to take the adopted animals to their new homes. The additional costs for the transport of the animal(s) will be covered.
