    Help with animal care, maintenance and fundraising at an animal rescue charity in Central Scotland !

    **WE CAN ONLY ACCEPT UK BASED PLACEMENTS JUST NOW**

    Come and stay in a caravan on our animal sanctuary next to the river near beautiful Aberfoyle in The Trossachs, central Scotland!

    Please note WE CANNOT ACCEPT PETS, OR CHILDREN, no matter how well behaved!

    The charity manager is an older lady who's health is not great and we need caring reliable people to help her care for the wide variety of rescued animals we have here as well as help with maintaining the site and attending fundraising events around the country!

    We have 15 special needs dogs including Chihuahuas with heart problems and multiple blind Labrador types. We also have guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, chinchillas, a pig, donkeys, 2 cows, 2 sheep, ponies, horses, chickens, tortoises, a bearded dragon, snake, cats and erm I think that's it!

    A lot of your time will be spent supervising the rescued dogs here, sitting with them and giving them company, making sure they are ok, please only apply if you would be happy sometimes spending a few hours at a time doing this!

    *** IMPORTANT!! PLEASE NOTE ***
    Can't quite believe I'm having to add this update haha but here we are...please PLEASE be aware BEFORE applying...working with animals involves cleaning up poo! It involves mud, dirt and smells. The living and working facilities are BASIC. There is NO RUNNING WATER INSIDE THE CARAVAN, it is close by! You cannot shower more than once or twice a week. The shower is off site. Please,if you can't handle all of the above, this is NOT the place for you!! If you're hard-core and not phased by this, get in touch!! 😆❤

    The area around our sanctuary is truly the heart of Scotland! Aberfoyle and The Trossachs is only a 10 minute cycle along a beautiful safe cycle path and has all amenities like co-op shop, pubs etc.

    A bicycle can be provided as well as lifts to the towns if required. We are close to Loch Lomond as well as Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.

    Our sanctuary is home to 160 rescued animals and the rewards from helping care for them are huge!

    We need help caring for the rescued animals at our sanctuary, from guinea pigs to horses and everything in between!

    This involves mucking out, feeding, watering, grooming and exercising as well as cuddling and loving! We also need help with fundraising events...this involves attending shows, highland games and events all over Scotland and assisting with set up and running of our tombola and charity info stall as well as looking after our special needs dogs who attend these events with us. We'd also appreciate help with general maintenance and odd jobs around the sanctuary, plus possible admin/social media help! Our site and facilities are basic and rustic, if you want luxury and fancy this is NOT the place for you!

    We are looking for kind, caring, hard working people who are willing to turn their hand to whatever is required to assist the charity manager with the day to day running of the centre. The work is not easy but is highly rewarding and offers great opportunities for seeing Scotland!

    IMPORTANT!! VITAL INFO...PLEASE READ!!

    You MUST be comfortable spending a lot of time with LOTS of dogs! You MUST be comfortable with dirt, poo, smells, bad weather, basic living and hard work!! If ANY of that is an issue for you, or if you don't like getting mucky, or if can't take instruction or you need pristine facilities and regimented order around you, please please don't waste our time or yours by asking to come! 😆 Thank you! ❤ due to training involved, MINIMUM placement is 1 month.

    Accommodation will be in a comfortable cosy caravan right in the heart of our sanctuary! There is a Portaloo on site, and full shower/washing facilities are available for you to use nearby, but SHOWERING DAILY WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE so please be aware of this! The caravan has BASIC cooking facilities and there is the possibility of some shared meals but you would mostly be preparing your own food. We are happy to take you to town for supplies etc but these need to be purchased by you, unfortunately as a small charity we can't afford to provide your food. There is running water on site for washing/dishes etc but NO RUNNING WATER IN YOUR CARAVAN. Please be sure this will all be ok with you before applying, thanks!
