Volunteer at the puppy shelter in Slatina

Volunteer at the puppy shelter in Slatina


The municipal shelter in Slatina, Sofia, is the place for two special groups of dogs rescued off the street - all those little babies thrown out in a box and aging animals. A total of 100 homeless buddies looking for a better life.

The greatest happiness would be for each and every one of them to find a new home and loving family. And for that to happen, it is important for the dogs to socialize and get used to human company. Then they stand a much better chance of adoption.

Join the Slatina Puppy Gang group of volunteers who visit the shelter every week and bring joy and care to all. With you, the dogs will have their moments of freedom and play outside the cages, will learn to walk on a leash and get to know what it's like to give and receive tons of hugs.

Your can really help make a difference by:

  • walking and playing with the dogs;
  • bathing and grooming;
  • cleaning the cages;
  • socializing the animals.


Volunteers are welcome every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, from 9 am to 1 pm.

Book your visit in advance, as the shelter can accept a limited number of volunteers for the day. Do not go on your own - first get in touch with the volunteers' coordinator.


Sofia, 164 Geo Milev St, Slatina.


Stéphanie Gillet - long-term volunteer at the municipal shelters run by Ecoravnovesie.

Skills needed?

Love animals. Be patient and hardworking. Cooperate with the rest of the team.

Shall I bring something for the dogs?

If weather is bad?

If it rains, the visit for the day is cancelled.

Health risks?

Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).

It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.

    Доста емоционално преживяване, организаторката и доброволците бяха мега свежи ,да не говорим за богата палитра от четириноги приятели с най-различни характери, определно бих отишъл пак !

    В началото беше малко трудна коориднацията и комуникацията, но в крайна сметка се разбрахме. В приюта има около 100-150 кученца, някои от които бебета. Работата е основно социализация на животинките като има някои, които са много срамежливи.

    Невероятно преживяване! Не исках да си тръгвам :)) Чистихме една клетка, а мъниците на няколко пъти ни скъсаха калцуните и ръкавиците :) Беше ни обяснено подробно кои кучета можем да пипаме и кои - не. Кои са болни или агресивни. Как да ги храним. Всичко! Беше страхотно! Благодарности към тези добри хора! <3

    Аз съм на 15 и се чудех дали мога да дойда с няколко приятеля, за да се грижим за кучетата или трябва задължително да дойдем с възрастен?
