Dierenopvangcentrum Breda

Main aim of the charity

The main aim of DOC Breda is to take care of animals that no longer have a home and replace them in their new forever homes. We mainly take care of cats and dogs, but also temporarily take in other animals such as rabbits, reptiles and birds, which then go to other animal shelters specialized in other animals. We also have a 24/7 animal rescue where animals in need are rescued and taken care of in the shelter.

How the employee got involved and why

I started in September 2020 because I had some spare time next to my studies. I always wanted to have a dog of my own but since I had no space for that I decided to volunteer at the shelter instead. The main reason why I still volunteer there now is because it gives me peace and it is also very rewarding to see (most of the time) damaged dogs turn into happy dogs that eventually get new owners!

What work does the employee do for charity

I volunteer at the animal shelter in Breda 5 hours a week, where I clean the kennels and feed, walk, play - and cuddle with the dogs.
