  • Descripción


    Hi and Hola, we are a non-profit animal welfare foundation operating in Barra de Potosi - Playa Blanca, Guerrero, Mexico.

    We run regular mass spay and neuter clinics. We rescue abused and hurt animals, mostly dogs, cats , horses, place them in our fenced open-air sanctuary, while looking for permanent homes for them.

    We also have a small BnB and need help there during the high season.

    Sanctuary and BnB staff are Mexican born , speak Spanish only, you will practice your Spanish and experience their way of living here. You are surrounded by local people and can choose to integrate as much as you please.

    FREE TIME : we are located by the most beautiful beach and surrounded by dry tropical jungle, with many lagoons, rustic walking and biking trails. Our volunteers during their free time can explore rural Mexico , practicing Spanish, socializing with locals, exploring neighboring towns, ruins, museums, learning the culture, traditions, as well as kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, exploring the jungle, wild life watching.

    * Are you an animal lover ? You will deal with dogs , cats, and other animals , love them, hug them, care for them... accompany them to the vet, if you are squeamish of blood , don't like to get dirty or clean poop, this isn't for you.

    * Are you a light sleeper ? Dogs can bark at night , if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs.

    * Have you lived or visited rural South America, Africa or Asia? Lack of amenities can be disappointing for some volunteers who have never travelled to this part of the world.

    * Have you shared living spaces with room-mates or other volunteers and prepared for communal living and working with a team of like-minded people ?

    Our ideal volunteer is a team player , has great common sense, good sense of humor, ability to work without supervision, open minded, very flexible, with good energy, happy smile on their face, willing to learn, help, listen and respect our rules. Mature. No Drama. Hard Workers ONLY - volunteering at our animal sanctuary is amazing satisfactory but still hard work.
    Basic or Fluent Spanish is always a huge plus, but not mandatory.

    we are looking for:

    Sometimes the needs of the animals can come at any time of the day and so our schedule is not always fixed so we ask a little flexibility from you, we also offer flexibility as when you need time off.

  • Alojamiento


    You will be living at the volunteer house , along with our rescue animals who live like pets inside and outside in our backyard. Many volunteers sleep with dogs in their beds. If you are a couple you might have your own bedroom, if you are traveling solo , you will share a room with another 1 or 2 volunteers.

    Volunteers must be prepared to live alongside other volunteers and our dogs and cats. To have complete privacy, you will need to go for a walk to the beach or the jungle.

    Volunteer house is simple and rustic, has all the amenities you need, but basic. Please don’t expect luxuries. We have two shared bathrooms ( indoor and outdoor ) , kitchen and a shaded roof area built by our volunteers for yoga, meditation and social gatherings.

    We are located in the middle of nowhere, but still close to civilization. It is not a busy party town with nightlife, but we have a few local restaurants where you can eat Mexican food.

    The sanctuary and volunteer house are a 5-minute walk from the beach Playa Blanca;
    10 minutes bus ride from the village Barra de Potosi and our BnB; 15 minutes by bus from the airport Ixtapa - Zihuatanejo; 45 minutes by bus from the Zihuatanejo centro.
