Left after 5 days. The people are very nice but the living and eating is limited. Stayed in a small barn with no wifi and was too hot and very dusty and old. Worked a good 9hours a day but with only 20mins to 1hour breaks inbetween, so no relax time throughout the day. Couldn't have any free days with the other volunteers so you'd just end up doing stuff alone.

That said, the people were very kind hearted and they clearly loved the animals, but I personally felt like a full-on employee rather than a volunteer.

I had a great time at Hotel Lands in love. It's fantastic if you love animals as there are several hundred on the enormous property, whom you get to walk, wash and love :) The staff there are also great, so welcoming and friendly and you won't have a bad meal!
The hours can feel quite long as you have to work 9 hours a day with particular time slots in the morning and evening to walk the 250+ dogs. It is good however as you can pick and chose what you would like to do in the day as there are a variety of areas you can work in.
All in all, it was a lot of fun and definitely recommended :)
