  • Description


    We are a non-profit foundation based in Guatemala. In 2017 the first seed was planted by Steve Levine who seeks to address serious undernourishment, negative environmental changes, social and cultural issues; all caused by the lack of education. The foundation focuses on feeding street dogs and on the catch and release program. Steve is guiding the foundation that will connect to the root of the local people through open community gardens that will promote permaculture techniques, animal welfare and recycling. Connecting to the root, the seed, the fruit, the soil and the water.

    We are looking for people that have experience with street dogs, rehabilitating street dogs, training street dogs and people with vet experience. This is not an easy thing to work with sick and injured dogs.

    We believe in providing more then most.. The core of our program is Food-Love-Shelter!

    Dog training
    Walking dogs in Antigua/Jocotenango or on day trips in Guatemala.

    The most important thing is spending quality time with our rescues, building there confidence while enriching there new lives by socializing them and educating people about what we do at the Mayan Dog Rescue Foundation.

    We are really interested in working with enthusiastic dog lovers. If you have experience working with sick and injured dogs or have worked with street dogs it is a BIG plus and we want to talk to you.......

    Veterinarians or VET tech EXP will help us doing health checks, vaccinations, treating wounds, along with spaying/neutering and to reinforce the importance of caring and providing the essentials: Food, Water and Shelter with the local communities. sharing your LOVE of Animals with the world...

    *️️*️️ A minimum commitment of 2 weeks but we do insist on a one month commitment because it takes at least 2 weeks for you to learn our routine and it takes at least 2 weeks for our rescues to adjust to you.
