How to find volunteering opportunities in Bulgaria
You can access these opportunities in two ways.
Your first option is to buy our Directory of Volunteering opportunities which lists these opportunities in a PDF. This gives you a document that is easy to search, and which you can use even when you’re not connected to the internet.
More importantly with the directory, you will also get a list of questions to ask to make sure you get the most out of your volunteering experience. We know how important it is to clarify expectations and to get a clear idea of what you’re signing up for before you volunteer. I know that there are opportunities we signed up for that didn’t end up being what we expected. A conversation with the hosts before we turned up would have helped us avoid a few uncomfortable situations. You can find our Directory of Volunteering opportunities abroad here.
The second option is to look for the opportunties below.
We consistently add new volunteering opportunities to each country so do check in regularly to find some great responsible volunteering opportunities abroad. We would also love your help in keeping this list up to date and useful. If you know of any other places that should be featured, or maybe you’ve visited a place and would like to share your story, please get in touch.
We really hope this information helps you volunteer abroad in a way that makes your travels feel meaningful and memorable.

We are small charity that mainly focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating Bulgarian street dogs, fostering many until they can be re-homed, usually abroad and at the same time providing help and support for local shelters and taking much needed aid to municipality pounds. We also run neutering programs around Bulgaria. Volunteers will help take care of foster dogs, help with basic medical care for the dogs as required, help socialise the dogs, accompany us to the vets, help build kennels and more shelters. Accommodation is provided and we can accommodate short or long term stays. Please contact us to find out more.
