Volunteer – Friendicoes


They say you can never have too much of a good thing, and that’s definitely the case with volunteers at Friendicoes! We need all the help we can get, and there are numerous ways in which you can lend us a hand to support the animals under our care. 

All you need to do is find out which mode of support is most suitable for you:

Shelter volunteering

A significant area in which we require support is to facilitate daily evening walks for our fur babies. Due to space constraints, most of our dogs are confined to small spaces and volunteers like you can help us ensure they can head out for a long, stimulating walk at least once a day. We have close to 200 dogs at our city shelter in South Delhi and another 1000 at our sanctuary in Gurgaon. These dogs crave one-on-one attention, and your presence would make their day! Aside from this, a typical day of shelter volunteering would also involve helping us clean cages, feed our residents and interact and engage with the most adorable puppies and kittens!

Adoption support

We’re always looking to grow our network to help rehome many dogs and cats in our care. By joining our adoption volunteer team, you can help us find homes for some of these animals and carry out initial screenings that are part of our adoption formalities. You can also come spend time with the dogs waiting for homes at the adoption centre and engage in different enrichment activities to provide them with the necessary stimulation. 

Additionally, we require recurring support in transporting our animals to their new homes from the shelter, from their fosters to their forever homes, or even between foster homes – and we would be grateful for your services. However, it’s important to note that for one to be a part of the adoption team, we require committed and consistent volunteers and won’t be able to make room for short-term support.

Fundraising support

One of the most important ways to help an organisation like ours is by raising funds. By organising fundraisers in your schools, colleges, offices and neighbourhoods, you can help us collect the funds to ensure we can continue doing what we do.

Donations in kind

By referring to our wish list, you can help us collect donations in kind, like rice, newspapers, medical supplies, old linens, leashes, collars etc., to ensure that our supply stock doesn’t run out.

One-time volunteering

For those of you who have very little spare time but would still like to help when you can, we’d urge you to keep an eye out on our social media channels for one-time event volunteering opportunities at fundraisers or fundraiser P.R. events.

We do hope you decide to join the ever-growing Friendicoes family!
