I am Corinna, who live now on Corfu, Greece. I have 8 rescued dogs, who are living with me in the house.
I am helping stray dogs, abandoned dogs, some shelters and the local community, bringing the dogs food, medicine, providing sterilisation and trying to find them a lovely home.
Currently in the Covid situation I can only take care for the 8 rescue dogs on my land.

You will be staying in a lovely countryside area, with the local quiet community, surrounded by nature. But in 5 minutes walk you are middle of Sidari town, where are so many restaurants, bars and different beaches. You can reach all by walk. If you want to go to Corfu Town, there is a bus.
The best part: the dogs give so much love! They all have different personalities and stories, but all love to be with humans receiving lots of cuddles and love.
Please, read these tasks before applying for this opportunity.
First of all, you have to LOVE DOGS! You will be with all types of dogs on a daily basis, who need attention, love PATIENCE and care. You will get dirty, you will be licked and loved; Dogs are the priority in this Workaway.

It depends how many volunteers we have (one, two or three), and if I am at the home or not during this period (sometimes I have to travel due my work) we can split up tasks and organise the weekly schedule.
