    Hello:)
    Do you love dogs? Do you want to come and stay at least 3 weeks to help us take care of rescue dogs and take part of our daily life here at our little private rescue center for dogs, outside Alicante? You will help us with our lovely dogs, and also help us with cleaning etc both in the house and in the dogs area.

    We now need 1 person who really LOVE dogs to come and stay until the 25th of June. You must have a driver license.

    I am a 41 year old woman from Norway, living in Spain and rescuing dogs. I live here together with Leo and we have now 13 dogs here at this private rescue center, from puppies to old dogs, all abandoned or mistreated.

    We moved to this place about a year ago, and there is still a lot to do ... We also need one volunteer to help with the dogs/house and with driving. We have a car here, but no driving license.

    The working hours here are not fixed, because I never know whats happening ... maybe someone come with newborn puppies at the middle of the night that needs to be bottle-fed etc. Its important that you really love dogs, and that you are hard working. You can not be "allergic" to barking, because sometimes some of the dogs are also barking at night ...

    This is a good place to volunteer if you want to stay in quiet surroundings, with loving dogs - dogs who will touch your heart :) I have a "no alcohol and drug" policy here on the farm, so this is not a place to volunteer if you want to go out and party etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about helping dogs who has been suffering and help them to get a new chance in life :) Many of them are ill when I rescue them. Right now I have a dog who needs an amputation of his leg, plus surgeries for his eyes ... I rescued him only some days ago.

    Help

    We need help with "everything" with the dogs, from feeding to cleaning poo, walking etc. We also need help with maintenance, painting, gardening etc. Its not important that you have experience with dogs, as long as you really love dogs and want to help dogs getting a new chance in life.

    We have a "no drug and alcohol" policy here" at the farm, and its really important that all volunteers respect that.
