We are a German dog and cat rescue station in the south of Tenerife. Our society is based in Germany but the rescue station is on the Canary Islands. It was founded in 1992.
Our center is around 12.000 qm and we have different houses for cats and dogs.
In the “Finca” live 2 women around 70 years old, two girls (22 and 31) and me the “boss” of the rescue center. I´m 38 and living in Tenerife since 2017. From time to time we have help from 1-3 volunteers. They live also with us.
We have always around the 60 dogs and 70 cats and all the animals are need a lot of love.
Our employees are busy in the daytime with feeding, cleaning so they don’t have so much time to walk with the dogs or to play with and cuddle the cats.

The beautiful weather on Tenerife all around the year invites you for swimming, surfing, hiking and a lot of other activities.
We are friends with a horse rescue so there is also a possibility for go riding.
You can learn a lot about cats and dogs and spend time with them. Some of our employees are Spanish so you can learn with them a bit of Spanish because they also speak English and German.
We search for Workaways 25 years or older (to stay 4 weeks at least or more) loving cats and dogs and want to give a lot of love to them.
You should be experienced in walking and training dogs (in the positive way) or you should be crazy cat person who wants to spend some time of your day with cuddling and playing with cats.
They Workaways help cleaning and feeding, too.
Also we search from time to time Workaways for building new facilities for our cats and dogs.
And also we have a gardens for cats and dogs so when your passion is gardening we might have a Workaway job for you, too.
You must speak English or German.
Maybe it sounds like a real easy and relaxing task, but cleaning, feeding, walking with dogs, gardening, playing with cats its not always relaxing and sometimes the Tenerife sun it´s really hot ;-)
In the Finca live around 30 cats and 10 dogs and normally you share your room with some of them. Also you share the kitchen with cats and dogs ;-)
But you have your own room and shared bathroom and kitchen.
The rooms have a single or double bed, closets and some of them a TV.
The kitchen is fully equipped and we have sheets, blankets, towels and washing machine and dryer.
We have internet. With all the animals we are nearly busy all day so we don’t have the possibility to cook. Every work away or volunteer gets 30 € / week for food and we drive to the supermarkets together.
There are a lot of tourist attractions in Tenerife, you can go clubbing, surfing or visit the highest mountain in Spain. We also do sometimes trips with the car around the island with our work always and volunteers.
The next bus station is Tenerife Airport South or San Isidro and you can travel by bus around the whole island. Depends on the time we can bring you there and pick you up again. For walking it’s around 45 minutes. Depends on how fast you are ;-)
