Expat veterinarian and dog trainer Astrid has been working with the dogs that live at Katya's shelter since she arrived in Moscow in the fall of 2008 and has done an absolutely fabulous job! All of the dogs at the shelter are now trained to go for walks - something many of them have never done before, and they really want to practice more often!
We have a small group of volunteers who walk the dogs on weekends (which you are most welcome to join as many of our volunteers have recently left Moscow), but the dogs would love to go for walks during the week as well. If you have some spare time - either on weekdays or weekends - and would like to join our volunteers, please contact us at .
Please provide your name, contact phone number(s) and also let us know which languages you speak so that we can put you in touch with one of our existing volunteers.
The shelter is located in the city center very close to metro Kurskaya. By the way, you do not have to speak Russian to walk the dogs - they are all multilingual ...
Here are some photos - see how much fun this is?
