  • Description


    Hello my name is Vaso, I live in Gargalianoi Messinia Greece Peloponnesus region. I have a shelter where I rescue dogs and cats, I am very close to the town in Gargalianoi Messinias . Messinia
    Is a larger town and is 40 km away and Kalamata is 70km . The local Ktel buses link to Messinia and Kalamata . Marathopolis is about 10 km away abd here is a beach resort area very beautiful. We run olive fields, some of the disused land I dedicated to my rescue work. You will live with me in my house which is close to the shelter that I manage with my rescued animals. I do not speak English only Greek but I am sure through translate we can communicate. I could really do with 4 to 5!hours help a day. Mostly feeding and cleaning and helping me get animals to the vet. Social media skills would be great as I run a facebook page with helpers from all over the world..but they need me to take better pictures and videos. Its all charity work that I do and my facebook page raising the funds for this work. If you feel you want to visit my town and you love animals I would love to have you visit me I need help as I cannot manage on my own. In return I can provide accomodation in my home and meals. Thank you. Due to my home circumstances I can only accept female volunteers at this time.
