    Hi everyone,
    We are a couple of animal rights activists running a vegan non-profit NGO in Portugal.
    As part of our organization's work we are now building an animal rehabilitation centre where we have our multispecies family, and where we accommodate animals that we rescue from abuse, abandonment or death temporarily until we find them suitable homes where they can live forever safe and loved. We have now over 80 animals, a lot of pigs, chickens, ducks, sheep, horses, goats, rabbits, 2 cats and 2 dogs😊

    If you truly love animals and see them as equals it will be an amazing experience to be able to care for them and learn how wonderful individuals they all are.

    We are looking to have between 3 to 5 volunteers at a time to help us 5 hours daily, 5 days a week with animal care and tasks related to construction work, general maintenance of the spaces and our food garden.

    We are looking for volunteers that would be responsible for helping out with animal care - there is a lot of small things to take in and we prefer that the animals also have time to relate to the person caring for them daily so 1 month time is the minimum 🙏

    PLEASE, please, please do not even write us if you are expecting to come to a petting zoo, we area an animal rescue organisation not a holiday camping site. The work is physical, you will need to learn a lot of small details to do the daily animal care routine, and of course, it's a farm, so you will get dirty, and clean a lot of poop everyday.
    In order for you to be happy here you will need to be a practical person that doesn't get tired very quickly and is ready to put an extra effort into helping animals.
    As a non-profit that runs itself of donations from kind people, we really can only host people that can commit to the project truly and fully for a minimum of one month.
    Many people comit to us and then leave us after two days because they didn't realise that working with animals in a farm requires responsability, dedication and a selfless spirit. Farm life is not for everyone, volunteering with us is an amazing experience but only if you truly love animals and understand fully the amount of daily work involved in caring for them. Farms are not apartments in cities where everything is sterilised, sometimes there are fleas that we have deal and take care of. Sometimes it rains and everything gets muddy, you will get dirty, you will be in contact with life in its raw form. If you are ready for all of this, please get in touch with us, if there are any doubts in you, please, we beg you, do not, we have been lied to by too many workawayers. We are tired of having people leaving the project without support after commiting to the project only because they thought they were coming to a petting zoo holiday ground.

  • Unterkunft


    Sleeping area will be in two big tents with two rooms each and leisure area. Meals will be in a communal shared area. We have a normal hot shower and a compost toilet. We will give preference to people that already follow a vegan lifestyle as we won't allow any non-vegan products to enter the sanctuary or be consumed within the property and we don't wish people to suffer for being here.

    Working with animals requires love, compassion and dedication. We wish that people applying to come support the project realise that the time they will be asked to help out is an important time to truly be present with the animals and give them the care and help they need, being with feeding, maintenance, cleaning, etc.
    We need support from people that really want to help animals and are ready to give them the time and love they need 😊

    On another note, we are very close to lisbon, 30 minutes on the train, and not very far from beaches if you have your own transport.

    It will be an experience of a lifetime if you enjoy learning more about animals, compassion and activism. We breathe and live animal rights Activism here 😊❤

    We can accept dogs, but only if they are used to being around birds, sheep, and other animals in a peaceful way, without chasing them, otherwise the ones we protect will not feel safe in their own home.
