We are a married couple who is running a translation agency but also live in a farm. We are sheltering some abandoned and stray dogs and cats. We have app 70 cats and 35 dogs. Some of the dogs are kenneled as they have issues with the cats/other animals therefore, we need help with walking the dogs and playing/training them.
We also need help with maintenance and organizing of the ranch as it is a very big property and there is always something to tidy or fix. There is always a need for gardening and landscaping, so if you want to work in open air, Antalya is a perfect option for that.
Help at home like daily cleaning of the cat litters, vacuuming & mopping the house will also be expected. Since we have to spend lots of time in front of the pc, our meals are not planned and the fridge is at your service :) The food can be vegetarıan or vegan frıendly. Although one of us is at the ranch most of the time, there will also be a lot of times where you will be working on your own because of our work schedule, so please be prepared for that as well. We also love anyone that can cook or be creative (dog houses/solar power/new ideas etc)
Please note that we ask for a 2 week minimum stay, as it takes some time to become familiar with the dogs and daily routine.

You will primarily learn a lot about animal care and dog behavior, as well as experiencing life in a more rural area, Turkish culture and food, and the Turkish language if you are interested. We also practice archery sometimes if you would like to learn :)
