    Description

    First: We have a NO ALCOHOL AND DRUG policy here on the farm, so if this is a problem for you this is not the right place for you ... so please, if you write us, you agree that the time spent here with us, is 100% without any kind of drugs/alcohol!

    We are not a shelter/rescue center, but we live on a private little farm with animals we have rescued :)

    We are looking for a person who wants to spend some time here with us, at least 3 weeks. To take part in the daily life with the animals, cleaning, maintenance and driving. The animales also have some visitors coming (modtky children with parents) , so it would be great if you are good with People :)

    Yhis is an old farm so there is always a lot of maintenance that needs to be done, so we need a handy person, with good work ethic.
    You must like a quiet lifestyle, without easily getting bored - because this is a place where not much is happening :) If you are independent, handy, love dogs and dont have a need to be "entertained" all the time, this can be the place you are looking for.

    Important; The volunteer needs to have a driver license! If you need to use your phone/WiFi in your working hours, this is NOT a place for you.

    My name is Sissel and I am a 41 year old woman from Norway. I live here together with Leo on a quiet little farm in Spain. We moved here about 2 years ago.

    The working hours here are not fixed, but you work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week... Its important that you really love dogs, and that you are hard working. You can not be "allergic" to barking, because sometimes some of the dogs are also barking at night ...

    This is a good place to volunteer if you want to stay in quiet surroundings, with loving dogs and animals - animals who will touch your heart :)

    We also have a full size swimming pool.
