The animal shelter “Nadezhda” (Hope) was founded in 2011, and it looks for homes for abandoned and homeless animals. At the moment, the shelter houses130 dogs and 30 cats. It aims to treat, train and rehouse these animals as well as to raise awareness through local events and the media. Main Activities The shelter provides necessary medical help, treatment for fleas and worms, and vaccinations against infections and rabies. Females are always sterilised. The shelter also interacts with the trapping service to remove puppies and dogs with owners from the pound. We use both online and printed advertisements, as well as outreach work in villages, to help find homes for our animals. We also work actively with the media: our animals have been featured in newspaper articles and television reports. Volunteer tasks Volunteers’ will mainly help out in the following areas: Dog walking and training Assistance with medical treatment Organising social and awareness-raising events Assistance with building maintenance and reconstruction The shelter’s staff members work from 10.00-17.00, but volunteers start a little later, at 12.00.
Volunteers will live either in host families or in a flat shared with other international volunteers in the city of Samara.
The shelter is located in Yaitskoie, a village just outside the city of Samara. Samara has a population of 1.2 million people, making it Russia’s sixth largest city. Its history is closely interwoven with the entire history of the Russian State. Samara has deep-rooted cultural traditions. Its past and present preserve the names of famous writers, artists, musicians and actors. (Project address: Samara Region, Volzhskii District, Yaitskoe settlement, right side, opposite Rybtsekh).
