    Volunteer - In Karpathos or Athens

    We can't do this without support in Karpathos!


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


    As an onsite volunteer you will become an integral part of our organization.


    Each person may choose the area of interest for volunteer action depending skills and time.


    This could include:

    • 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.


    In the form below, you can indicate what you would like to do!

    Helping our animals before they find their forever home


    Foster volunteers are responsible for animals who just need a place to stay before they can be adopted or animals in need of medical attention 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!

    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.
