  • Description


    #-#-# Update: Looking for one or two workawayers right now, I am staying in Sagres on a private camping place, taking care of an old husky lady and a 8 weeks old puppy. Until end of december. You have your own campervan, truck to sleep on. Shower and electricity at day time. Kitchen, sauna and compost toilet. #-#-#

    Hey there!

    My name is Tobi and I am the founder and ceo of a non-profit organization registered in Germany. We are rehoming streetdogs and dogs out of shelters in Europe. We are using our own homepage and social media platforms to find the perfect new home for every single dog.

    I am 30 years old and from Germany. My mother tongue is german but feel free to text me in english. I have traveled 18 countries the past three years, all together with my Siberiann Husky, Neo and my self converted campervan. I have two dogs now, Maya is a kangal mix and 1,5 years old. Since I have founded the non-profit organization I am using my travel / vanlife / photography - social media profiles to get more attention for the project itself. I am photographer and videographyer and freelancer / digital nomad since I am fulltime in my van. I love dogs and wolves so I made this topic the main one in my life.

    Join me for Vanlife in autumm & winter 2020 - to spring 2021 and help me rehoming dogs in need..

    I already hosted people in my van, first friends and later "strangers", I met on facebook groups or other social media platforms (like Instagram) ... It was always a nice experience, so I thought workaway could be a good opportunity to share my travel adventures with a travel buddy and to get some help for my projects. (Update: Already hosted workawayer since 2019, not all of them left a comment, I have some more ratings on my project page on facebook tho, ask me for the link.

    My project is about picking up / helping street dogs on my way, clean them and bring them to a vet for medical treatments and then using social media profiles and our own homepage to find them new homes. All of this progress will be visible in a photobook and in videos as well. I could definetely need help with that.

    Ask me for my Instagram to get more information about our current location and the route we are driving.
