    Help for 3 to 6 month in an Animal sanctuary in Limousin, France

    This is a unique animal shelter that provides a loving home for animals with severe disabilities or cancer. The estate in France has been the home of dogs and cats with special care needs since 2013.
    Here they receive the love and respect that every life deserves and enjoy their own lake, the forest and the dog and cat walks every day anew. We do not see our animals as sick or handicapped because they do not experience themselves as such. They need conscious care and special care in everyday life, otherwise they want to experience their life like a "healthy" animal: exciting walks, games and interaction with other animals make up their everyday life.
    A currently female team is taking care for the well-being and safety of our dogs and cats 24 hours a day. The estate as well as the costs for food and medical care of the animals are covered by sponsorships. Since we are focussed on animals, that are neglected in other shelters, we face daily new adventures and tasks in helping our furry friends.

    We favor work-away volunteers who have experience working with special animals and we are looking for people who are willing to help and play, also clean dogs with disabilities.
    If you can help us with weeding, building new dog runs, renovating and landscaping you are more than welcome, we need loving, helping hands urgently.
