  • Description


    My name is Linda, and I founded our dog rescue near Elhovo several years ago as I was shocked by the number of abused or abandoned dogs in need of love and attention. Therefore it has been mission to nurse these poor pups back to good health and find them loving adoptive homes for them to flourish in. However, as the word has spread the workload has only grown, and therefore I would massively benefit from the support and assistance of a workawayer to work alongside me, to help save as many dogs as possible.

    I live in a village called Dobrich, which is very traditionally Bulgarian, on a free-range farm which my Bulgarian husband, Nicholi, owns and runs. This will allow for significant exposure to the Bulgarian culture, and allow you to work around many animals, including chickens, ducks, cows, sheep, peacocks, guinea fowl, ducks and geese to name a few! It also has plenty of space to park campervans if that's your chosen form of travel, and is far away from all the current Covid related concerns!

    Our village is only 10mins away from the nearest town, Elhovo, which has all the amenities you may need, such as shops, restaurants, bars, swimming pools, supermarket, etc. The city of Yambol is also only a short drive away if you begin to miss the city lifestyle!

    Whilst staying with this, your primary responsibility will be the dogs, as I need someone to socialise with them, transport them to and from the local vets in Elhovo, assist in administering medical treatment, and assist in rescuing any more dogs that need our help. However, this being said, no two days are the same and the same is true of the work so you'll never be bored! It is really crucial that you have a full driving licence as some driving will be necessary!

    Whilst staying you will stay in a seperate converted barn, with a large double bed, all your kitchen amenities, and an en-suite. This allows you to benefit from complete privacy, as I think it is vital for anyone to step away from the work and mayhem and take time for themselves - I hope having such a space will allow you to do this.

    I am also flexible on the number of hours you choose to work. If you work 3-4hrs I will be more than happy to put you up, but you will be responsible for your own food, cleaning, shopping, petrol, etc. However, in the past some of my workawayers have gone above and beyond, working 6-8hrs a day, and in return I will provide you with good food, clean and wash for you, cover petrol expenses should you wish to go out in my car, and similarly go above and beyond in return. The choice is totally yours!

    Otherwise thank you for taking the time to read over my profile, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information or have any queries. Linda.
