  • Description


    Our little piece of heaven is a-short 8 minute drive from the wee town of Lone Butte on BC”s “Fishing Highway”, and 20 min. from the quaint town of 100 Mile House that truly has most everything you NEED. One hour North brings you to the city of Williams Lake where you can find almost everything else.

    We are looking for help with our animals, cleaning, gardening and random repairs and maintenance in and around our home.

    We love family, people, animals and nature. We are generally very easy going and love our quiet life. Our critter-family consists of 4 dogs, 2 cats and 5 chickens . We are looking into the idea of further breeding of our Golden Retrievers and Golden Doodles. But have concerns and considerations to reconcile before we jump into anything.

    We are a non-smoking, non-drinking, No Foul Language and NO DRUGS OF ANY KIND household and have no tolerance for any kind of disrespect to humans or animals ever. We love our way of life and would love to share it with the right person(s).

    The work is basically to help with household chores, animal care, gardening, yard work and various projects.

    Btw I don’t check email regularly so I apologize for a delayed response in advance
