    Hi Animal-Lovers

    You allways wanted to visit the unique Galapagos Islands and at the same time do something good?
    You love all animals and you love that taking care of animals is called work?
    Then you are at the right place with us.
    Be part and help us from the very beginning to build bit by bit our brand NEW project.

    My Husband and I are a young couple living on the beautiful Galapagos Island Santa Cruz where we have a little farm and we made it our mision to rescue domestic animals like dogs cats pigs and other animals here on Galapagos.
    We rescue misstreated, starved, forgotten and unwanted animals and give them a place where they get a lot of love and time to recover from whatever they went through. We take all of them to the vet to help them with whatever they need, and also sterelize and vaccinate them before they ever go in adoption. Because after they are completely recoverd we try to find the perfect forever homes. Many of the dogs stay for ever.
    All this and much more is a a lot of work for us two and thats why we need you!!!
    You can help us from the very beginning change the future for many furfriends here on GPS.

    My Husband (28) is a local galapagueño from Galapagos, I (30) was born in Switzerland and we live at our little farm in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island 20 minutes by bicycle from the big town Puerto Ayora (10min by car). My Husbands speaks spanish and english and i speak spanish english and german. We have about 7000 m2 with a lot of Coffee plants Bananapalms and other fruits and vegetables and a bunch of animals running in between all that.

    At the moment we count - 22 Dogs, 2 Cats and 2 Pigs - sharing our space.

    Our dream is to help more animals in to live. Unfortunately there is nothing like a shelter for dogs so far here but we want to be the first ones because we really need and want to make a change.
    In the future we want to have a nice shelter structure with all what is necessary like kennels pool vetstation etc. but step by step
    We want our project to be also good for the enviorment and thats why we try to use as much as we can recycled (bottles, tires, wooden palletts) or natural materials (bamboo, porotiio, wood) to build. Creative technical minds are allways very welcome here!

    Works for Volunteers now at the beginning can be

    - cooking for the animals and feeding them (morning and evening)
    - clean after animals
    - build dog houses
    - reforce fence that dogs cant escape
    - build cat tree
    - brush the pigs

    - coffee beans picking (depending season)
    - gardening
    - build a bungalow

    Our farm is close but still far. the next shop (with variety) is 15 minutes walking distance or 5 minutes by bike. Galapagos is in general a very expensive place. Every saturday is a big market where they sell all fruits vegetables meat and whatever you need. we recommend to buy there for the week.
    The Airport to Fly in and arrive on the correct Island is BALTRA GALAPAGOS. Please take that in note otherwise you'll have to take a Boat from one island to the other for two hours and 30$

    I think we still need to do the invitation card for every volunteer! That takes up to 5 workingdays and it's necessary that the flight is bought allready.
    They try to get rid off this IC but solong please take that in note too.
    With this i make us responsible for you and they know where you stay!

    We are searching for volunteers total = 4 (2 couples)
    from mid March 2020 - mid May 2020 who stay all for 2 months!!
