    I have been in Bulgaria for around 18 months and was shocked and horrified at the level of animal abuse and neglect I witnessed. I decided to buy a property where I could have a safe place to rescue dogs, with a view to finding them forever homes and arranging to get them to their destinations.

    Some of the transformations have been unbelievable, seeing absolutely terrified dogs turning into the most amazing and loveable characters. It is very rewarding work but can also be heartbreaking.

    Bulgaria is a beautiful country with lots of places to visit. We are teaching the younger generation about caring and respecting animals and trying to change the mindset of local people and their attitudes towards animals which don't rate very highly in this country.

    I am running a sanctuary and need help looking after rescued dogs, including feeding, cleaning and walking dogs. Building and general maintenance would be a bonus but is not essential. A vehicle can be made available to someone with a driver's licence (which has to be kept on you while driving).

    On a normal day we work from 7.15am to about 9.30am cleaning, feeding and walking some of the dogs. Then it's free time until 3.15pm. From 3.15pm until about 5.30pm more dogs need to be walked, fed and areas cleaned.

    Occasionally I may need help during the day if vet visits are required or puppies need feeding.

    The village is a half hour drive from Vratsa, which is surrounded by beautiful mountains. In the summer there are sunflowers everywhere. There's plenty to do in Vratsa, such as visit Bulgaria's famous ice cave, Ledenika. There are also local markets to visit weekly. The sanctuary is a 5 minute drive from my home in the next village along.
