Program Details

We expect volunteers to be very flexible and responsible. We are also flexible towards volunteers needs and desires.
Most of the work here is cleaning and watching over the animals.
We live in community so we expect everybody to do their share of the housework (cleaning the dishes, floors, toilets, cleaning after the dogs, cooking,...)
Apart from the every day animal care and house chores, we also invite volunteers to be creative. We have many painting and other works of art in and outside the house done by volunteers from around the world. There are also various gardening, building, repairing tasks to be done which you can learn from or teach us about.
If this is your kind of world, then I assure you, you will never want to leave this place! ;)


We eat, cook and clean all meals together, regardless of any agreed off time, these are responsibilities we share as a community.

The first 30 days of contribution is to be paid upon arrival and is non-refundable, so make sure you really want to spend this time with us before you arrive.

Remember this is a home we share as a community, not a hostel nor a hotel. You need to feel at home here and try to spend as much time with us and the other volunteers as possible.
