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!
Do you love dogs? Do you want to come and stay at least 2 weeks to help us take care of rescue dogs and take part of our daily life here at our little private rescue center for dogs, outside Alicante? You will help us with our lovely dogs, and also help us with cleaning etc, both in the house and in the dogs area and on the property.
Important; The volunteer needs to have a driver license!
We now need a person who really LOVE dogs and love to spend time with dogs.
My name is Sissel and I am a 41 year old woman from Norway, living in Spain and rescuing dogs. I live here together with Leo and right now we only have 8 dogs, så it is a quiet little privat rescue center.
We moved to this little old farm about 1,5 years ago, so there is still a lot to do (need help with maintenance etc)
The working hours here are not fixed, because we never know whats happening ... maybe someone come with newborn puppies at the middle of the night that needs to be bottle-fed etc. 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 - dogs who will touch your heart :) We also have a big outdoor swimming pool.
Help in the house
You will learn about helping dogs who has been suffering and help them to get a new chance in life :) Many of them are ill when they get rescued and have special needs
We need help with "everything" with the dogs, from feeding to cleaning poo, walking etc. We also need help with maintenance, painting, gardening etc. Its not important that you have experience with dogs, as long as you really love dogs and want to help dogs getting a new chance in life.
We have a "no drug and alcohol" policy here" at the farm, and its really important that all volunteers respect that.
