Join Our Dedicated Animal Rescue Team in Picturesque Crete!

We’re casting a wide net for compassionate individuals who are eager to make a real difference in animal welfare. If you have a heart for protecting our four-legged friends and the courage to step out of your comfort zone, we warmly invite you to consider joining our team.

The opportunity awaits on the stunning island of Crete – with its breathtaking beaches, rich cultural heritage, charming old harbor town of Chania, and modern conveniences. We’re seeking dedicated team members who are willing to relocate for at least a year (with the possibility to extend) and immerse themselves in this rewarding work.

The animals in our care need champions who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves. It takes compassion, resilience, and a deep commitment to this cause. But the chance to transform the lives of vulnerable rescue pets is truly special.

If you’ve got what it takes – a passion for animal welfare, a collaborative spirit, and the flexibility to thrive in a challenging environment – we encourage you to apply today. Help us build a brighter future for Crete’s forgotten furry friends.

We’re in search of a dedicated full-time team member (m/f/d) to join our efforts at the Souda Shelter in Crete. In this role, you’ll be responsible for the care and rehabilitation of approximately 80 dogs – including former strays, abandoned, and abused animals that we’re working tirelessly to place in loving forever homes.

This is a demanding yet incredibly rewarding 40-hour per week position that requires both a driver’s license and strong English language skills to effectively coordinate the daily operations of the shelter. From hands-on animal care to managing veterinary visits  and assisting visitors, you’ll be an integral part of our small but mighty team.

We’re looking for someone who isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in – whether that’s cleaning kennels or documenting their progress for our online outreach. Above all, a genuine passion for animal welfare and a commitment to making a tangible difference in the lives of vulnerable rescue pets is an absolute must.

If you have the compassion, resilience, and work ethic to thrive in this challenging but immensely fulfilling role, we encourage you to apply. Help us continue our mission of providing a safe haven and bright future for Crete’s forgotten four-legged friends.

While formal training in animal care is certainly a plus, it’s by no means a prerequisite for this role. What matters most is your unwavering commitment and sense of responsibility. We need teammates who are willing to go the extra mile, day in and day out, for the sake of the animals in our care.

Resources may be limited, but our passion for this cause knows no bounds. You’ll quickly learn that the pace and priorities of animal welfare don’t always align with conventional methods. We operate on a different clock, one that requires the flexibility to respond to emergencies at all hours and the resilience to power through physically and emotionally demanding conditions – especially during the challenging Greek summer heat.

Every new team member must be prepared to fully immerse themselves in this work. We don’t just want employees – we need passionate advocates who will treat our rescue animals as their own. When the going gets tough, you need to be able to rely on your colleagues as much as they can rely on you.

It’s a tall order, we know. But for those who are up for the challenge, the opportunity to transform lives and make a tangible difference is truly unparalleled. If you have the heart, the hustle, and the hardiness to thrive in this environment, we’d be honored to welcome you onto our close-knit international team.
