    Description

    We are a family living in a rural location with 7 hectares of land in Albox, Almeria, Southern Spain. I am a teacher teaching online so working from home a lot. I have a 19 year old daughter who lives and works in the local town and a 15 year old son who still lives at home with us. When we came to Spain three years ago we began volunteering at a local dog rescue charity on a Sunday as a family activity. Now we have accumulated a few rescues of our own! We currently have 21 dogs, 5 donkeys, 7 guinea pigs, 4 chickens and 3 cats. Everyone of our animals has been rescued either from a sanctuary, the local perreras or the street. All neglected and abandoned at some point in their life- some quite ill and needing love and care to nurse them back to life and restore their faith in human beings. There is also a ruin on the land that we are looking to slowly restore to its natural glory. We get no financial aid to support our ever growing menagerie but would go with out to ensure they get everything they need. We are looking for someone/couple to come and lend a hand to care for the animals- feeding, walking, grooming, mucking out and with the restoration of the ruin. I have also been deemed unfit to drive so would really like to have someone who can drive- ideally over 25 for insurance purposes. When the car is not being used for home purposes you will be welcome to use it to explore the local area. We are 40 minutes from the beautiful seaside resorts of Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera, and hour from Cabo de Gata and 2 1/2 hours from Sierra Nevada. To take this post you MUST love ALL animals- big and small and be 100 % committed to their love and care.

    We live in Southern Spain which has a wealth of culture and local attractions- Saliente Monastry is a short drive away, with Granada and its rich history a few hours away too. Although our postal code is Albox town, we are closer to Taberno which is a typical Spanish town with bars, supermarket and fiesta throughout the year. The area is a rural , mountainous area- ideal for walkers and those moments of solitude and contemplation. My children are fluent Spanish speakers but I´m learning the language and would be happy to include anyone in this process- if you are interested of course.

We are a social family but also appreciate our space so you will be free to enjoy your own peace and quiet.

    You will have sole use of a 4 berth caravan with cooking facilities, heater and fridge. There are also toilet facilities but you would need to use the family bathroom for showering needs. To the exterior of the caravan there is an outdoor seating area and BBQ (twin gas hob also) with a fire pit that you are also free to use. There is an 8 seater jacuzzi at the main property but this is operational dependent on the time of the year. WIFI is also included. Breakfast, lunch and evening meal will be provided.
