„I attended my first Vegan Camp Out UK in 2023 and saw Viva! founder Juliet Gellatley present a few different talks, all incredibly moving and powerful. This is what motivated me to become more actively involved, so I headed to Viva!’s website to see what I could participate in. Initially I was looking for local opportunities however I came across Viva! Poland reaching out for volunteers and thought why not? I am passionate about helping animals in need and thought this would be a perfect opportunity to do so.

I had such an incredible experience whilst volunteering in Poland. Whilst I am a lover of all animals, I was primarily helping out with the dogs as this is the animal I have most experience with. Some of my responsibilities included ensuring all dogs had water, cleaned and winter-proofed their kennels, walks and of course, lots of cuddles. During my stay I felt very welcome, staff were happy to provide help when needed and I felt comfortable with all tasks given.In the UK I work full time in an office so spending time helping animals, in the fresh air away from everyday hustle and bustle has been amazing. As well as helping animals in need it has also acted as a detox for myself as I was able to reconnect with animals, nature and myself whilst being there.

Since I first got into contact with the shelter, Ewelina was so welcoming and helpful, from helping me book my flights, airport transfers, my time at the shelter and everything in between! She ensured things ran smoothly so I cannot thank her enough for making me feel at ease whilst doing something totally out of my comfort zone.
I would definitely recommend volunteering at Viva! Poland to anybody considering it. I am so glad I was able to take the opportunity as it allowed me to do something I love whilst pushing me out of my comfort zone, allowing me to meet new people as well as providing me with a huge confidence boost and an overall unforgettable experience.”
