If you are interested in volunteering for SAPT Hellas, please tell us the way you think you could contribute. We are always in need of volunteers for our visits to schools or institutions but also for general administrative support, such as translations in English, working from your computer and, of course, helping with your physical presence in the events we organize or participate in, such as our Christmas/Easter bazaars or speeches and lobbying for animal welfare.
If your wish to help in our visits, you must free your schedule on Wednesday mornings (sometimes Friday mornings too), Also, sometimes our volunteers’ time is necessary on Saturdays or Sundays, for special events). As a Candidate for the General Support team you are expected to attend several weekly visits – at least 20 in a row, if possible- so you can fully understand our work. Then the time will have come that you and us together will decide whether you wish/are eligible to be a part of the team. If yes, you will be officially enrolled as a General Support Volunteer for SAPT Hellas, wear our yellow t-shirt and :
(*) While we need help, we are adamant about growing our team very carefully. If after you attend one visit you find yourself appreciating our work, you should keep on coming with us every week. This however, does not mean that after 20 visits you will necessarily join the Dog Handlers Team (with your dog or a dog that you would consider adopting). Why? Because, although you might make a wonderful addition to our general support team, a dog might not feel comfortable or “protected” enough by your side and, the good psychological state of the dogs is of utmost importance in what we do!
