    Description

    I'm an Australian expat and I've lived in Thailand permanently since 2008. I started helping homeless dogs and cats living on the streets in August 2015 and I now have a small sanctuary where 90+ cats and five dogs live. It's a lot of work taking care of so many animals so I need devoted and genuine volunteers who love both cats and dogs and who are prepared to do everything and anything to help keep my cats and dogs healthy, safe and happy.

    Please only apply to volunteer at my sanctuary if you absolutely love both cats and dogs with all your heart. I need people who can handle both cats and dogs and not be afraid of either of them.

    Since my sanctuary is small, I only need either one person or a couple to work with me only in the mornings. Where I live is like a retirement village and there is not really any nightlife, so the volunteer position is not really suited to people wanting to meet other travelers. I don't socialize myself much either. All animal lovers are welcome to apply but just be mindful that you may spend a lot of the time on your own.

    I do not provide my volunteers with food. There is a small kitchen in my apartment where you will stay that is equipped with everything you need to cook your own simple meals. There are mini supermarkets locally and giant supermarkets in the town of Ban Phe. There are many inexpensive restaurants, Thai kitchens and food carts in the area.

    My sanctuary is about two kilometers from my apartment so you will need to ride bicycle/s to the sanctuary or you can hire a motor bike locally.

    Helping at my sanctuary you will have an opportunity to stay in a mostly Thai holiday destination where the are not so many international tourists. You can learn from my experience of living in the country. You will meet some local people and also other expats who live here. Thai language study materials, history and culture books can me made available if you would like to do some study about Thailand.

    The minimum and maximum time to volunteer is two weeks.

    On arrival day, I'll take you to the apartment where you'll stay then give a tour of the sanctuary and the local area. The rest of the day is free for you to settle in.

    Work starts the following day, then after five or six days of work, take a break for one or two days, work for the next five days and depart early the following day.

    Work starts around 9.30 am and finishes around 12.30.

    The work you'll do includes:

    Cleaning and keeping the spaces where the cats and dogs live sterile. This requires daily scrubbing of floors, furniture and other surfaces with diluted bleach, so you will need to wear old clothes, protective foot wear and gloves.

    Gardening and small maintenance jobs.

    Cleaning the cats' ears, brushing the cats, and taking the dogs for walks.

    Spending time with the cats and dogs to pat, cuddle and play with them. The weather is usually hot in Thailand and you'll be mostly outdoors, so during all the hard work, breaks should be taken often to sit in the cool and the shade with the animals.

    A calm and relaxed approach to the work and taking time to enjoy being with my cats and dogs is the best way to volunteer at my sanctuary.

    If we are both comfortable with it, volunteers can take on some of my work, like feeding the cats and dogs and if you're interested, I can teach how to medicate and give other treatments to the animals.

    A single person or a couple stay in my studio apartment on the beach front. Volunteers do not share the apartment with anyone else. If you've been on the road for a while, staying in budget accommodation or shared accommodation, my apartment is a wonderful place for you to stay and relax. There is a large swimming pool, sauna and gym in the apartment building.

    There is a small kitchen in my apartment that is equipped with everything you need to cook your own simple meals. There are mini supermarkets locally and giant supermarkets in the town of Ban Phe. There are many inexpensive restaurants, Thai kitchens and food carts in the area.

    Internet is available.

    My apartment and animal sanctuary must be kept clean, tidy and with positive energy at all times.

    With the beach across the street from where you'll stay, you can swim in the ocean or sit in a deck chair in the sun or shade and just chill by the sea. There are restaurants and bars along the beach front, but not much nightlife. The local temple is a short push bike ride and has a market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There are mini supermarkets, coffee shops, an Italian restaurant, and Indian restaurant, atm machines and pharmacies locally and anything you need is easily available. The town of Ban Phe is six kilometers away and from there you can take a ferry to the tourist island of Kho Samet for a day trip or overnight stay. Local buses known as sawngtaos (like a pick-up truck) go to the big city of Rayong where there are many shopping malls, markets, coffee shops and international restaurants. The whole area is safe, convenient and comfortable and volunteers really enjoy their stay in Ban Phe, Rayong.
