We are a registered non-profit organization in Japan, helping people help pets.
We help with rescue and re-homing of abandoned or stray animals, we provide limited sheltering space to those working to help stray or abandoned animals in their communities, we help to organize sterilization campaigns, and we provide advice to people who contact us about animal welfare issues in Japan.
Following the earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan, we responded immediately, in order to provide animal rescue and sheltering assistance to evacuees needing help with pets. We continue to run a small shelter and rescue base located in a completely safe area. Our organization has been featured on Animal Planet and in other international media.
We Herbert and Oliva are a retired couple living in the northern mountain range of Veracruz, away from the beaten path, at the edge of a small town (aprox. 9 000 inhabitants). I am German and my wife is Mexican.
Our house is on 15 000 m2 fenced land and there is always something to do with maintainance, gardening and carpentry. I am a hobby carpenter myself.
We have 5 dogs (a pair of german shepherds and 2 frenchpoodle females (mini) and a Fox Terrier) So you should love dogs and can get along with them.
We have a couple of employees living in a separate house on the ground.
We live in a very nice region, which offers excellent opportunities for hiking and sightseeing.
We love to know people from different backgrounds and cultures and to learn from them.
Some experience in carpentry and general maintainance would be great.
We accept one work awayer or a couple.
We have no preconception regarding age.
An international drivers license could be helpful.
WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER

Some sturdy shoes and long pants when working in the garden.
Some warmer clothes. In the evening it´s getting a bit cool, as we are about 2 200 m high in the mountains.
Depending on the time span you are visiting us, some raincoats. You better check with us for some more detailed recommendations, once you are accepted.
If you smoke, you should do this outsides and dispose the reaminings in the garbage.
Moderate drinking is no problem, excess will be. No drugs allowed.
We are a small language centre which uses the language learning process to help people develop their comunication skills as well as expanding their horizons through debates and several kinds of discussions on different subjects.

We provide accomodation and there will be food at the house (any comsumptions outside will be for your own account).Please ask for our website -- here you can find some information about the work we do.
I am a single mom with 3 sons aged 15, 13 and 10. We live in a bungalow in a small town in rural Alberta, but we are close to the city of Calgary and the Rocky Mountains. I work from home and also homeschool my 2 youngest sons. We love to travel and spent a month in Europe last year. We have a large yard and are planting a garden this year. My oldest son and myself enjoy gardening. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their travel stories. We can offer the experience of living in a small town, but we also visit my sisters in the city of Calgary where there are many tourist attractions. If time permits there may also be opportunities to visit Banff National Park and many other scenic wonders. My sons enjoy fishing and being in the outdoors, so there will be opportunities for camping this summer.
We are an optimistic & inspired family who seek the company of like minded people.
I Teresa am a reiki master, counsellor, NLP practitioner & life coach.
