Dog Shelter - Caretaker and/or Assistant

5 avaliações5


1 acre gated property with 4 bedrooms has 30-35 dogs who need day-to-day care. The founder of this Dog Haven works full-time at a bicycle shop. She needs help! You would be welcome to stay at the house, which is in the outskirts of town; it's a beautiful setting. She needs a person or a couple or a family to come help her do everything. .She does have some part-time volunteers, but she needs help of a full-time person. You would live there.

Our foundation is helping her as much as possible to stand-up her actual dog haven. This is my plan, but I need an anchor; a long-term volunteer to help me to help her.
Volunteers/interns in this position will have an incredible opportunity to experience all aspects of what it is like to run the entire operation which currently holds 30-35 dogs as well as dive into the dog care awareness campaign community-wide. Participants are invited to play an active role in all aspects of operations of animal shelter management:
