Mini Boarding House

At Mini Boarding House, we provide a unique volunteering opportunity for travelers who have a deep love for pets. As a volunteer, you will have the chance to work closely with our furry guests, spending more time with them than with humans. Our primary goal is to ensure the happiness and well-being of the pets, which in turn brings joy to their owners. By choosing to volunteer at our establishment, you will actively contribute to creating a positive and nurturing environment for the animals in our care.

Additionally, Mini Boarding House offers an excellent opportunity for travelers to explore the natural beauty of Taiwan. While we are conveniently located near the beach, providing easy access to Taiwan's stunning coastline, we are also in close proximity to the breathtaking Taiwanese mountains. Moreover, our location offers convenient access to Taipei City, allowing volunteers to experience the vibrant city life and immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of Taiwan.

Mini Boarding House is a family-run business managed by a young, multicultural couple. The owners, coming from diverse backgrounds (French/Taiwanese and Uruguayan/Taiwanese), have a deep appreciation for cultural diversity and are passionate about meeting people from all over the world. The staff at Mini Boarding House, including the owners and their family members, form a close-knit team dedicated to providing a warm and welcoming environment for both the pets and the volunteers. As a volunteer at Mini Boarding House, you can expect to be treated as a valued member of our family. We maintain an easy-going atmosphere where open communication and mutual respect are highly valued. We believe that volunteering should be enjoyable and fulfilling, and we strive to create a positive and supportive environment for all volunteers. You will have the opportunity to engage with our team, exchange cultural experiences, and develop meaningful connections during your time with us. At Mini Boarding House, we appreciate the dedication and passion of our volunteers. We are committed to ensuring that your volunteering experience is both rewarding and memorable, and we look forward to welcoming you as part of our team.

I had the incredible opportunity to volunteer at mini boarding house for three months. And it was an experience I’ll always cherish. The apartment itself is spacious and clean. Natasha and the full time sitters are not only wonderful people but also incredibly kind-hearted and passionate about their work.
During my time here, I dedicated 3 days a week from 9 to 6. The tasks included cleaning the kennels, general cleaning, playing with the dogs, going outside with the dogs. Every day you work Natasha provides you with a delicious local lunch. I wholeheartedly recommend staying here!

I have had such a wonderful month in Taiwan at Mini. The managers and workers are all lovely! The work is hard and can be very tiring but it’s typically just 3 days a week so you have time to rest. It was such a good way to experience Taiwan, and have a routine and daily life as opposed to a holiday. I will miss it terribly and am super grateful for the experience.

I had such a great time at Mini Boarding House! This was my first worldpackers experience and it was wonderful. The hosts and staff were all really sweet and great at making sure the volunteers knew how things work and keeping us in the loop on everything.

The accommodation is a small apartment about a 40 min bus ride away from the shop, the commute is quite easy. It's also easy to get from the accommodation into Taipei on days off when you want to go explore and do tourist-y things! All the volunteers are in the same building so it was nice to have people to commute to and from work with!

It was a very fun experience! I found I was working a lot during the week, but the workers were so sweet and made the entire process so enjoyable. I wish I was able to immerse myself more fully in the Taiwanese culture during work, however, had a blast learning about the mini boarding house. I also enjoyed the lunch which was given during work as the places were always local and great food!
