Support our animal welfare work by becoming a FOUR PAWS Volunteer!

As an international organization with offices in 15 countries, and projects all around the world, we are always looking for dedicated individuals interested in donating their time and talents to support our cause.

There are a variety of opportunities for volunteers to assist FOUR PAWS in creating sustainable solutions for animals in need:

  • Office Intern
  • Sanctuary Volunteer
  • Activist



You can make a difference to ensure the rescue of bears and other wild animals being held in captivity, to educate the public about the cruelty that livestock animals must endure, and to promote better care for stray animals.

Here are just a few examples of what types of roles you could be doing to impact the lives of animals:

  • Provide detail-oriented research to support current and upcoming campaigns
  • Your public speaking skills can help us educate the public and our youth
  • Create exciting content and monitor social media platforms
  • Design informational flyers for our various projects and causes to bring awareness to the public
  • Implement your expertise to create change in policies and laws regarding animal welfare standards
  • Use your filmmaking or photography skills to create content that will engage and motivate our audience to get active for animals in need


Please note that we are asking for a minimum commitment of 3 months for Office Interns.



Our sanctuaries were built to provide animals that cannot be returned to the wild, with a species-appropriate home, where they can live out their lives in comfort and safety. To create sustainable solutions for animals that have been rescued from captivity, one of our main goals is to educate the public.


Our sanctuaries, which are located across Europe, and in Asia, are always in need of volunteers interested in lending a helping hand:

  • Observe bear behavior to track how well they are adjusting to their new enclosures, if they are displaying normal instincts now that they are living in a species-appropriate environment
  • Support staff members with maintenance work, such as painting, making repairs, and landscape work
  • Provide animal enrichments, and help with food preparation and feeding
  • Share your knowledge and enthusiasm by giving tours to the public


Please note that we are asking for a minimum commitment of 4 weeks for Sanctuary Volunteers.



As an activist, you are directly able to impact animal welfare!

In order to bring awareness to our campaigns and projects, we are always looking for volunteers to actively help us spread the word. Here is what you can do:

  • Sign our online petitions and share social media posts with friends and family
  • Organize a fun-run or other activity to support our fundraising efforts
  • Help us educate the public at an organized FOUR PAWS event or protest
  • Gather signatures for petitions
  • Hand out informational flyers
  • Contact your local government to push for changes in animal welfare laws
  • Establish an activist group in your local community, with our support


If your skills and talents are not listed here, it does not mean that we do not need your support! Contact us to find out how you can get involved.
