  • Description

    Description

    Hi everyone,
    We are a couple of animal rights activists running a vegan non-profit NGO in Portugal.
    As part of our organization's work we are now building an animal rehabilitation centre where we have our multispecies family, and where we accommodate animals that we rescue from abuse, abandonment or death temporarily until we find them suitable homes where they can live forever safe and loved. We have now over 70 animals, pigs, chickens, duckd, sheep, horses, one goat, rabbits, and 2 cats 😊

    If you truly love animals and see them as equals it will be an amazing experience to be able to care for them and learn how wonderful individuals they all are.

    Help

    We are looking to have two volunteers at a time to help us 5/6 hours daily, 5 days a week with animal care and tasks related to construction work, general maintenance of the spaces and maybe some gardening.

    We are looking for volunteers that would be responsible for helping out with animal care - there is a lot of small things to take in and we prefer that the animals also have time to relate to the person caring for them daily so 1 month time is the minimum 🙏

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Sleeping area will be in a big tent with two rooms and leisure area and meals will be in a communal area. We have a normal hot shower and a compost toilet. We will give preference to people that already follow a vegan lifestyle as we won't allow any non-vegan products to enter the sanctuary or be consumed within the property and we don't wish people to suffer for being here 🙏

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Working with animals requires love, compassion and dedication. We wish that people applying to come support the project realise that the time they will be asked to help out is an important time to truly be present with the animals and give them the care and help they need, being with feeding, maintenance, cleaning, etc.
    We need support from people that really want to help animals and are ready to give them the time and love they need 😊

    On another note, we are very close to lisbon, 30 minutes on the train, and not very far from beaches if you have your own transport.

    It will be an experience of a lifetime if you enjoy learning more about animals, compassion and activism. We breathe and live animal rights Activism here 😊❤

    Can possibly accept pets

    We can accept dogs, but only if they are used to being around birds, sheep, and other animals in a peaceful way, without chasing them, otherwise the ones we protect will not feel safe in their own home.
