    ***********ENGLISH HERE!!!*************

    Hello, we are the most beloved cat shelter in Perú!
    Not only we rescue, heal, spay and neuter cats, but we also rent out rooms to traveling cat lovers so we can self sustain our work here.

    We always seek leaders, proactive and creative people to solve day to day problems and to run our cat and house maintenance.

    As a volunteer here, you will be in charge of cat and guest house maintenance, take cats to veterinarian, and run our vintage tuk tuk store! Every Sunday we offer free classes to the children in the community, so teaching english or any interesting skill would be also of great help to our neighborhood.

    We live as a community, but we respect everybodys personal space and time alone. Not only you will have the volunteer room , but you will be able to sleep alone or with your partner in the guest rooms, mostly because there are cats everywhere and we do not want them to sleep alone :)))

    You will also have access to our vintage bikes, our tuk tuk and our VW combi, but you will need an international license for the last one.

    The job is super easy and simple , and we all take turns to do the bathroom and kitchen.

    Here we do not have a "boss" but we do have weekly reviews to check up in our work and weekly goals, and also to plan trips and fun stuff to do in our free time!

    One month minimum (exceptions are made for particularly talented people)
    Send your available dates please!
    Messages without tentative dates available will not be answered.





    ***NECESITAMOS PERSONAS PARA FEBRERO !
    *** WE NEED PEOPLE FOR FEBRUARY!

    Hola a todos, nosotros somos el albergue para gatos más colorido y más querido de todo el Perú!
    No sólo rescatamos, curamos, esterilizamos y damos gatos en adopción, también somos un hospedaje para viajeros amante de los gatitos!!!

    Aquí en nuestro Hogar de gatos buscamos, líderes, gente proactiva y creativa para solucionar problemas del día a día, además de las tareas regulares de mantenimiento del albergue y del hospedaje.

    Como voluntarix, estarás a cargo del cuidado diario de los gatitos y de darles su comida y amor, además de llevarlos al veterinario cuando se necesario. También estarás al cuidado del hospedaje, y de la tienda de ropa usada "Segunda Pata" que es una tienda en tres ruedas en nuestra moto taxi (tuk tuk)

    Los días Domingos ofrecemos clases gratuitas a los niños más necesitados de nuestra comunidad, así que si tienes alguna habilidad que puedas compartir con ellos, seria estupendo para todos!

    Somos se vive en comunidad, pero respetamos las necesidades de espacio de cada uno, y no sólo tendrás tu habitación de voluntarios, pero también la oportunidad de dormir en nuestros cuartos de huéspedes para mayor comodidad, pero también para que duermas con gatitos que lo necesitan mucho.

    Aquí también tendrás acceso a nuestras bicicletas vintage (todas chopper), a la tuk tuk y a la VW combi con la que hacemos rescates más grandes (necesitas licencia internacional)... además de contar con harto tiempo libre para ti!

    El trabajo es super simple y relajado, y entre los voluntarios nos tomamos turnos con los espacios compartidos como el baño y la cocina.

    Aqui no tenemos jefes, todos trabajamos con la misma misión de ayudar a gatitos, pero sí tenemos revisiones semanales en las que conversamos del trabajo y como podemos mejora, además de planear excursiones lindas, tours, y rescates. Definitivamente un buen lugar para descansar de tanto viajar, y un sueño hecho realidad para quienes amamos a los felinos.

    ==MINIMO ES UN MES==
    Mensajes sin fechas tentativas disponibles no serán respondidos





    FRANCÉS ****
    **Nous avons toujours besoin de volontaires***
    ** Écrivez-nous et nous organiserons un rendez-vous téléphonique pour pouvoir échanger ! **

    Bonjour à tous, nous sommes le refuge pour chats le plus coloré et aimé de tout le Pérou !

    Non seulement nous sauvons, soignons, sterilisons les chats et les donnons en adoption, mais nous sommes aussi un hébergement pour les voyageurs et les amoureux des chats !!!

    Ici à nous cherchons des personnes leaders, proactives et créatives pour gérer les problèmes du quotidien, en plus des tâches régulières pour l'entretien du refuge et de l'hébergement.

    En tant que volontaire, vous serez en charge des soins quotidiens à donner aux chats, leur donner à manger et de l'amour, en plus de les amener chez le vétérinaire quand cela est nécessaire. Vous serez aussi en charge de l'hébergement et de la boutique de vêtements d'occasion "Segunda pata", qui est en fait une boutique roulante puisqu'elle dans notre moto taxi (tuk tuk).

    Les dimanches, nous offrons des cours gratuits aux enfants de notre communauté. Si vous avez une compétence ou une passion que vous pouvez partager avec eux, cela serait formidable !

    vivons en communauté mais nous respectons l'intimité et les besoins d'espace de chacun. Vous partagerez la chambre réservée aux volontaires mais vous aurez aussi l'opportunité de dormir dans les chambres réservées aux hôtes, pour plus de confort mais aussi pour tenir compagnie la nuit aux chats qui en ont besoin.

    Vous aurez aussi accès aux bicyclettes(chopper), à la tuk tuk et la combi VW avec laquelle nous faisons les sauvetages les plus importants (vous aurez besoin dun permis international), en plus de bénéficier de beaucoup de temps libre.

    Le travail est super simple et relax. En ce qui concerne l'entretien des parties communes comme la cuisine et la salle de bains nous organisons des tours entre les volontaires.

    Amil n'y a pas de chef, tout le monde travaille avec le même objectif, celui d'aider les chats, mais nous faisons des points tous ensemble chaque semaine pour discuter du travail effectué et des manières de s'améliorer., en plus d'organiser des excursions, tours et sauvetages de chats.

    est le bon endroit pour se reposer après avoir beaucoup voyagé et un rêve devenu réalité pour tous ceux qui aiment les félins !

    *vous devrez rester au minimum un mois*
    Nous répondrons seulement aux messages dans lesquels seront mentionnées les dates envisagées.

    The place is located in the most beautiful part of the valley, right under a puma mountain bellow an amazing star filled sky. Here we live with original local families and work with each other to educate the population on responsable animal care. Here you will be involved with our mission since day one and you will become part of our cat family, and you will learn by first hand how we live here in the sacred valley.

    selling clothes

    We don't work so much with an schedule, but we operate by goals depending on the time you are staying.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will be sharing a very comfortable space with no more than 3 other people, and will have access to the rest of the house for yourself and for whatever you would like to run here, like yoga classes or English/Spanish classes to the public.
    In other words, you are able to start your own project here as we love to see our volunteers grow with us!

    A big plus for the volunteers is that you will have access to our super fun bicycles , so you get to ride around town in our chopper/cruiser vintage bikes, bringing back that inner child that we all need to carry in out hearts.

    You have access to the kitchen, and sharing with everybody to make things cheaper is always an option.

    Volunteers with driver licenses will also BE ABLE TO DRIVE OUR TUK TUK!!! Now how is that???!!! we also turn the tuk tuk into a vintage store three times a week and go out to sell, which is a perfect way for you to interact with locals at a different level


    The possibilities here and endless, you just have to be motivated to help cats in Perú.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    is located in the perfect place for visiting many touristic attractions.
    As we said before, we do not necessarily work with an schedule, but rather do it by goals.
    Besides the morning and night stuff that has to be done at the same time every day, the projects will get done as it is convenient for you and your exploring time.
    Around here we have waterfalls, ruins, lagoons and plenty of nature to go visit, and we achieve our goals quick enough then we will have a great deal of free time in our hands.

    Urubamba city features many places to eat, cafés, pubs and even places to go dancing, besides the regular markets and the massive markets happening a few times a week.

    Since you will have access to a bike, your first experience here will be a free bike tour of the city with either your host or other volunteers.
