Do you feel that your life is missing something? Would you like to learn more than you know now? What if you find what you have always been looking for, gain new knowledge and contribute to the well-being of homeless pets? We want to invite you to become a volunteer at “Lesė” and help to take care of dogs and cats and rescue them. It is very simple:
- you must be at least 16 years old and have written parental permission (no longer required if you are 18);
- register for new volunteers training on lese.lt (here);
- note whether you want to work with cats or dogs – this will decide which training you want to go to (or both)
- when you receive an email you will need to come to the shelter and attend training. Once you have completed your training and signed a volunteering agreement, you will become our volunteer!
You can volunteer at “Lesė” shelter both in Vilnius and in Kaunas. The rules and procedures are the same: application form, letter, training and then volunteering. How much of your time do we ask for? During the two weeks, at least one shift, i.e. 3.5 hours of work with dogs or 3 hours of work with cats. After three months of non-attendance, you will have to go back to training. We have two shifts during the day: 9 am – 12:30 pm (dogs), 9 am – 12 pm (cats) and 5:30 pm – 9 pm (dogs), 6 pm – 9 pm (cats). The volunteer joins the shift when he can and when the shift is not yet complete. During the shift, we clean dog cages, take dogs for a walk, feed them and cleanse the shelter. We clean cat cages in quarantine, clean litter boxes in free rooms, change the water and wash floors. It is important to mention that volunteers do not only work in the shelter! We are always looking for text writers, photographers who can contribute to social networking content, layout designers, installers, cameramen, new idea generators, drivers… Do you have talent? Don’t be afraid and write to firstname.lastname@example.org, you are always welcome!
