    (If you are a veterinarian please contact us at once, we have an interesting offer for you!!!)

    Hi my name is Karina and I live in a small paradise called Palomino. I am an animal lover and if you love animals this is the place, they are everywhere! Just feed a dog once and thats it, he will be yours no matter what… thats how I came to have 11 dogs and 8 cats and how this small dog and cat shelter was born! Here in Palomino Nature is spectacular, we have the ocean and 2 amazing rivers nearby. Every second day we take the dogs for a walk until one of the rivers, its imposible not to smile when you see dogs playing in the sand and swimming in the river, its so much fun! We leave in a house 10 minutes from the beach, at the end of the town, where youll have the chance to meet the local way of life. We are looking for volunteers who can stay with us minimun 1 month.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My place is located in a cool little neighbourhood in Palomino. It's about an 8-10 minute walk to the beach. It's a really nice place to be able to get to meet locals and see what life is really like here.

  • Help


    We need help in our home/shelter daily chores like: brooming the leafes, cooking, cleaning ( toilets, kitchen and dishes ) taking garbage out of the house, watering the garden and potentially some builiding and maintenance. It can be really dusty in dry season and we have lots of mosquitos, be prepared to get your hands dirty and sweet a lot!!!
    With the doggys: feed, help me washing them when necessary, clean their plates, pick up poppys, take them out for walks, pet and love as much as you can!!!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Palomino is all about Nature. Its located at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, an amazing sacred mountain with its snowpeaks, where you can visit indiginuos towns and see their way of life. Beautiful beach 10 minute walk from the house and 2 incredible rivers that reach the ocean making a spectacular view of sweet and salt water. Go visit The National Park Tayrona, with its beautiful beaches located 45 minutes from here. Hike the mountain and back down the river with a floater, really fun! If your looking to connect with nature and relax in the sand, while taking care of our house and The Pack, we have a place for you =)
