Help us develop our animal sanctuary

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a family of 3, we started as a foster home for abandoned and mistreated animals and we quickly learned that many animals don't get adopted. We wanted to continue helping animals regardless of whether or not they got adopted so we started to develop the property to make more space. Now we have 34 animals, we spend most of the day away from home and while we have volunteers that come during the day we need more consistent help. We have converted our AirBnB into a volunteer base with 2 bedrooms. We require help with building, gardening, playing with the dogs, walking them, socialising the cats, practicing the dogs training routine, cooking, driving animals to the vets, helping with social media posts, maintenance, helping with setting up events and other fund raising activities.
