I am sheltering abandoned and stray dogs and cats. I have some 40 cats and 15 dogs. Some of the dogs are kenneled as they have issues with the cats/other animals therefore, we need help with walking the dogs and playing/training them.
We moved to this new garden of 12-acres with some 250 trees of pomegranate, olive, lemon, orange. (Will upload new photos soon). Our stray animals are still with us (cats and dogs) and we need some true help in taking care of the garden, trees and strays. Feeding & playing with the animals; cleaning garden (litter picking, grass cutting); taking care of trees such as trimming, dunging and picking fruits for sales purpose, planting new trees; maintenance and organizing, doing pinterest projects.
Help at home like daily cleaning of the cat litters, vacuuming & mopping the house is also expected. Since we have to spend lots of time in front of the PC, our meals are not planned and the fridge is at your service :) The food can be vegetarian or vegan friendly. Although I am at the ranch most of the time, there will also be a lot of times where you will be working on your own because of my work schedule, so please be prepared for that as well. We also love anyone that can cook or be creative (dog houses/solar power/new ideas, etc.)
Please note that I ask for a 3 week stay minimum, as it takes some time to become familiar with the dogs and daily routine. For stays longer than 3 months you will need employee visa, which I did in the past for some of the workawayer friends several times.
