The Experience

Hi everybody. Thanks for reading my profile. My name is Ryan. I am a plant-based activist. Love animals. Trying to live as simply and peacefully as I can. My eco-project is a small no-cage no-kill animal sanctuary. I pretty live off the grid in a sustainable way in a little farm outside city of Mexico. I founded .and run an animal sanctuary where I rescue and rehab abused Animals. Today more than 100 abused and neglected animals live here.

Ryan is doing an amazing job taking care of all the cats and dogs he rescued. He’s dedicated for them and you can truly see it spending time with him in his farm. The animals are well-treated and receive a lot of love and care. All the projects he wants to develop in the new place he will go soon are very interesting and have a real changing impact. If you love taking care of animals and be in touch with nature, this volunteering is made for you!

To the next volunteer: get ready to have a one of a kind experience.
Stepping in the sanctuary you ll get what caring for dogs and cats is. Ryan is the kind of person that our current world needs urgently. Not anybody would have the strength to save and shelter a great number of dogs, cats (and soon cows and piggs) by their own.
As a volunteer it s been a crazy experience to be around dogs all day long. You ll get to feed them, clean after them and most surely to have some merited kiss and caress time.
Enjoy your stay at Ryan s☀️☀️☀️

Animal Shephard was an amazing and eye opening experience, learning about the operations of an animal shelter for dogs and cats. Ryan is environmentally aware and aims to have his farm off grid, so along with taking care of cats and dogs, volunteers are encouraged to contribute/help with environmental projects. Be prepared to get your hands (and body) dirty, so bring outdoor clothes and good pair of shoes/boots! I helped construct a biodegradeable compost area along with an undercover dog shelter. Other duties included fixing the fenceline and moving soil to fill in eroded areas of the yard.
