  • Beschreibung


    This project aims to transform an abandoned farm into a shelter/home for a variety of animals in need of care. Due to the unfortunate recent death of the farm owner, her many dogs, cats, ducks, a donkey and a horse were left without enough attention and care. Initially we plan to improve the living conditions of these animals, with a sustainable program in which volunteers come and take care of them. We know through experience that a paid employee is not the best option as we cannot measure their love for animals. To be able to make it more sustainable, we plan to host our volunteers in turns. By the end of each volunteer visit the next volunteer(s) will arrive so the information collected about the animals will pass on.
    The next phase of the project will be to improve the habitat of these farm animals in which we find the best solutions for their shelter, food and social interaction. This process will need counselling from professionals with experience of designing shelters since we plan to increase the capacity so to host other in need animals and be able to give them a chance of adoption by visitors of our farm.

    All animals in the farm urgently need love and attention. The dogs need to be walked in turns, cats need to be petted. In short all the help that is necessary is to show all those animals that they are cared, loved and not alone.

  • Unterkunft


    The volunteer(s) will stay in comfortable farm houses which were initially constructed for touristic purposes in early 2000s. They will have a place of their own with a personal bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room and study area. Major appliances, a good internet connection and food will be provided. The farm life is perfectly quiet and slow so it's best for people who can work off grid, like to be isolated in nature, or wants to take a break from the city life.
