Help around the house
-To help animals in need makes you feel great, you see the progress they do, you see how they find a forever home, how thankfull they are for every bit of love and attention.
You save lives!
-You'll learn so much about dogs, packs and their behavior.
-We are located in a small mountain village Akchour in the nature, close to Chefchaouen, one of the most beautiful city's in Morocco in the middle of the rif mountains with a stunning few.
Most of our rescues have been through very hard times in their lifes. They had been abused, suffered unimaginable pain, solitude or illness. They need care, attention, love, acceptance and patience. We need help to socialize and train them. Especially our puppies and juniors are happy to have someone who show them how to walk on a leash, behave in a house, play and build up a connection.
Beside the social interactions we need a strong and helping hand to walk the adult dogs, pick up poo, carrying the dogs for example when they're paralyzed, to clean the place and for mass feedings and rescues outside on the streets.
