Animal Welfare

Puppy at Animal Rescue Kefalonia

Based on the stunning island of Kefalonia, we offer 3 meaningful Animal Welfare Project options, running all-year-round.  Accommodation in dormitory style shared rooms in either the Lattitude Action Project hostel or one of the placement ‘hostels’.  The Lattitude hostel is in the island capital of Argostoli, with fabulous views of the town, the sea and mountains.

Stepping Stones Animal Foster Home

Stepping Stones is a not-for-profit animal foster home, with a focus on dogs and particularly re-homing puppies. There are always approximately 50 dogs and all the animals are abandoned or stray. The project is run from the home of a British expatriate on the island and comprises a number of dog pounds and kennels.

Volunteers are needed all year round. Minimum stay is two weeks but longer stays are preferable.
