Volunteers are the backbone of Vrouva Animal Sanctuary. We are a diverse group, striving to overcome the barriers that divide us and work together to help the animals, which is a very rewarding experience. Our volunteers care for and love the animals, as well as the wellbeing of the farm. They are passionate about animals.
If you're considering volunteering, you are very welcome! Most of our volunteers live on Aegina, and we have many who come for a month or more from all over the world. To enjoy working at Vrouva, you should appreciate a community and communal spirit. We work together in conditions that some would consider difficult. We live to serve the animals, not the other way around. There is no wifi and limited electricity. Toilets and (cold) showers are in nature and we live with the constant sounds and aromas of our animals. Some may find living and working at Vrouva challenging.
We love it!

We ask you to stay for a minimum period of 1 month. At Vrouva Farm we eat vegan and there is no alcohol or recreational substances allowed on the farm.
Because of the heat in the summer it is not possible to come in July and August.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we are unable to receive volunteers at present. We do hope this will change very soon :)
