    Description

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

    We have been rescuing and rehabilitating homeless cats and dogs within Palomino, Colombia since 2013. We are also currently the only animal rescue and shelter to offer strays refuge within the region. We offer a unique one of a kind experience to connect with people that share our passion for animal rights and invite them to join in the work that we are doing for strays in our community and along the Palomino coast. Through our Pet Hostel accommodations, Doggy Picnic activities, and donations we keep the shelter running. 100% of all proceeds are used to support the shelter and it's mission to rescue and to rehabilitate homeless cats and dogs within the region.

    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. Enjoy the amazing nature, River, Beach and Mountain.

    Help

    We need help in Pet Hostel and shelter with 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 ...

    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 =)
