  • Description


    In the small town of San Carlos, 100 km from Mendoza, we run a small hotel that doubles as a domestic and farm animal rescue operation. We are situated on a large piece of land that also formerly housed a monastery (now converted to hotel accommodations). We currently have over 50 dogs - almost exclusively strays rescued from the streets of San Carlos - along with pigs, wild boars, horses, turtles, and various types of birds. Since the year 2000, over 1,000 animals have passed through the rescue that is privately owned and operated almost single-handedly by the hotel's owner, along with the help of several staff.

  • Help


    As a volunteer, you can choose the tasks that best suit you. We always need volunteers to feed, care for, and give love and attention to the over 50 dogs currently in our care. As the rescue receives no outside funding, volunteers with veterinary care credentials and/or experience would make an extraordinary difference for those animals that come to us in need of sterilization, medical care, or medical maintenance. Volunteers with experience or networks for fundraising donations (both financial and in-kind) to upgrade the facilities and offset the costs for food, sterilization, and medical care are also needed. Other opportunities include daily maintenance and as-needed reparation of the animal enclosures, as well as lending a hand around the hotel with guests and general maintenance.
