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 looking for a person who wants to stay long term here on our little farm, from APRIL. To take part in the daily life with the animals, cleaning, maintenance and driving. It would be great if you are good at drawing/painting - if you could make paintings of the dogs on the walls / outside buildings on the property :)
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!
To stay here you have to really LOVE dogs and love to spend time with dogs. We dont have many dogs now, but we also have a donkey, a pony, two big mini pigs and cats :)
My name is Sissel and I am a 41 year old woman from Norway. I live here together with Leo on a quiet little private rescues enter in Spain. We moved here 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 and animals - animals who will touch your heart :)
