We are a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. We are a Registered Charity. We rescue abandoned, neglected and abused animals and rehabilitate and rehome them when possible. We specialise in rescuing ex-commercial hens, and rehoming them all over Ireland. We also offer a home for life to some animals which suffer from complex medical or behavioural problems.
Opportunity to speak English daily, and to experience life in Ireland, both rural and urban. Weekly free time in the cosmopolitan city of Dublin, and also the chance to relax in the beautiful Irish countryside, while making a difference to the lives of animals.
Due to Irish immigration laws, only helpers from the European Union can be accepted. Please check out visa requirements for volunteers if you are from outside the EU.
Help needed looking after rescued dogs, cats, horses, hens, pigs, goats, sheep etc. Mostly feeding hens, dogs, cats, cleaning animal housing, providing fresh water, exercising dogs, general maintenance of property. We need volunteers who can stay for at least one month, or preferably longer, to reduce stress for our animals. The work is often quite physically demanding, as we have so many animals to take care of every day.
True animal lovers only need apply.
