The Experience

Podrás ayudarnos a atender y cuidar a los animales que rescatamos (principalmente perros y gatos), nos encontramos en plena naturaleza, en una zona rodeada de viñedos y tranquilidad. Nos gusta que la gente se sienta como en casa, todo cuanto hacemos es entre un equipo de voluntarios cuya unión principal es el amor por los animales y donde entre todos conformamos una gran familia. Necesitamos ayuda con el cuidado diario de los animales.

As a first volunteering experience I couldn't have hoped for anything better than that !! Patri, Jose and all of the others volunteers are just soooo nice and committed to da good thing for those precious animals! They all made me feel at home and I will forever be grateful for their kindness and generosity. I have now so many new memories and friends that I will never forget !! Grateful and hoping to be able to see them all again soon !

I had an incredible experience working at the shelter. all the people there are there to care for animals, which says a lot about their personalities: kind and caring, with lots of generosity to give. the community there was more like a family than a workplace, all united by a common objective. the work is very fun- essentially consisting of playing with animals and taking dogs for walks through the beautiful Catalunyan countryside. i would definitely recommend the shelter and hopefully will return one day. thanks to everyone that made my experience great!

Thank you very much Andres!
It was a pleasure to share this experience with you and that you were part of our family while your volunteering lasted.

Mi experiencia en el refugio fue muy buena. A pesar de que estuve poco tiempo, conocimos gente increíble, tanto voluntarios locales como también otros viajeros. Hay un ambiente muy familiar, donde por momentos nos divertimos y por otros, tuvimos conversaciones relacionadas a la convivencia y tareas a realizar. Aprendí mucho sobre los perros, su comportamiento y los múltiples cuidados que ellos requieren. En mi caso, me toco el área de Creación de contenido, vacante que se abrió recientemente y que da poco va tomando forma. Recomiendo 100%, grandes personas y un proyecto realmente increíble.

Si te gusta la naturaleza, estar en un espacio tranquilo, está es una buena opción, los dueños del proyecto son muy buenas personas, muy amables y siempre están abiertos a escucharte. la experiencia de ayudar es enorme, y más cuando ayudas el refugio rescatados, se siente lindo hacer parte de esta bonita labor, recomendado si quieres algo un poco más tranquilo.
