Barcelona is a city where the option to euthanise rejected animals has been banned for over ten years. The outcome of this is that there are many shelters and sanctuaries that are completely oversubscribed. They are desperately looking for lively volunteers to help walk and play with the dogs, and cuddle and care for the cats. This is to ensure that these loving animals have a high quality of life before they can be re-homed.

Tasks include:

- Dog walking (primary)
- Socialising the animals in the play area
- Feeding
- Cleaning

You'll be staying in a modern eco hostel between the airport and the city center. A 2 hour tour of the city is also included on day 1. Three meals per day and a packed lunch available on request. Dietary requirements catered for.

Barcelona is the perfect city for volunteering and exploring! During the morning you will help out at two different sanctuaries with other volunteers. You will then have the afternoons off to soak up the magnificent tourist sites, cultural and historical buildings, museums, galleries, fantastic restaurants and gorgeous beach. The nightlife is up there with the best in the world so there is plenty to look forward to.
