Hello Workaway family,
Its with a lot of excitement that I am now back looking for more volunteering experiences.
I see towards possibly starting a study program on Animal behaviour/welfare next fall. Therefore and out of it being my passion in the first place I look primarily for work with animals.
At this starting point of my life working with animals I have a big interest in trying to work with a broad variety of animals in a broad variety of ways. The only wish I have is, that I feel the work I participate in is in the best interest for the animal.
Have some good previous experience working with animals. A densely populated dog-shelter in Croatia, a full-of life dog and cat sanctuary house in Greece, a farm with Racka sheep in Hungary. And now very recently the last months, to different animal sanctuaries in Brandenburg, Germany. Lots of new experiences have been made, e.g. training a blind dog, training donkeys for the carriage, lambing season, taking care of pigs, geese, rabbits, ponies and goats.
Also helped out on a mountain farm with cows and calves last summer (2020). Grew up with 5 cats and a lot of kittens * (unfortunately developed an allergy to house cats over the last years). Also volunteered in the US Virgin Islands after the devastating hurricanes Irma and Maria in fall 2017, that was a huge experience helping humans, their animals, other animals lost or stray. There I worked with an NGO called All hands & Hearts. Cant wait to take part in more projects working with or for animals.
I consider myself as a very patient, interested and hardworking person. I like to challenge myself, try new things, be spontaneous, push my limits :D and I love physical work!
Personal interests are:
TO BE OUTSIDE enjoying the fresh air while focusing on *animals, *nature, *cooking, *maintenance/construction, *writing, *music (learning to play the guitar), *meditation, *exercise (barefoot running and being active in general), *dancing (I think), *climb&balance&juggle
*work with animals, especially dogs, sheep and donkeys
*hurricane relief work
More details about my language interests
I love language. Learning spanish :D Exchange is always welcome at the warmest!
I believe in calmness and positivity. Finding a flow and enjoy the beautiful moments. SMILE :DD
Recently found out that I am allergic to cats. Been growing up with cats and surrounded with cats all my life, so it is a very sad challenge to face for me. As long as there are not cats where im sleeping I should be alright.
