El intercambio

1 acre gated property with 4 bedrooms has 30-35 dogs who need day-to-day care. The founder of this Dog Haven works full-time at a bicycle shop. She needs help! You would be welcome to stay at the house, which is in the outskirts of town; it's a beautiful setting. She needs a person or a couple or a family to come help her do everything. .She does have some part-time volunteers, but she needs help of a full-time person. You would live there.

Programa detallado

Our foundation is helping her as much as possible to stand-up her actual dog haven. This is my plan, but I need an anchor; a long-term volunteer to help me to help her.
Volunteers/interns in this position will have an incredible opportunity to experience all aspects of what it is like to run the entire operation which currently holds 30-35 dogs as well as dive into the dog care awareness campaign community-wide. Participants are invited to play an active role in all aspects of operations of animal shelter management:

You will have the opportunity to shadow a bilingual veterinarian and be in surgeries on a regular basis.

If you stay long enough, you may choose to participate in these:

• Dog population assessment & dog selection
• Dog intake & health check-up
• Dog health care management
• Dog grooming
• Dog nutrition
• Dog adoption campaigns
• Dog spay & neuter campaign
• Dog

Actividades & Turnos

• Tasked to compare/contrast Colombian practices vs. U.S. practices then make presentation
• Support in the creation of information materials for the public
• Support in the review of current internal operations processes & procedures for improvement
• Conduct dog health & behavior management awareness campaign
•Conduct spay & neuter campaign
•Conduct fundraising campaign
•Population survey of homeless dogs in the community
