The program

This wonderful program’s aim is to simply provide care to animals in need. The Sanctuary was founded in 2010 by a local mother and daughter team, who were driven by the ill treatment of animals in their own country. Over time the shelter has grown from strength to strength and combined with the assistance from international volunteers, they now care for approximately 150 rescued animals, including pigs, goats, rabbits, cows, horses, cats, dogs, ducks, guinea pigs, chickens and parrots. These animals have often been saved from mistreatment or rescued with life-threatening injuries. The team at the sanctuary work to rehabilitate the animals with love and medical care, aiming to give each animal the care and attention it deserves. Volunteers with a compassionate nature who are prepared to do any number of tasks to provide quality care to animals in need are ideal for this program. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide a safe place for mistreated animals
  • Provide medical attention and rehabilitation to animals who have been injured
  • Provide a home for animals without one and who would suffer otherwise
  • Provide an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange between volunteers and locals

How you can help

This project provides essential support to a large number of animals in need of care and attention. To keep the shelter operational, day after day, year-round, is a big task in itself, hence the assistance provided by volunteers forms an integral part of the operational plan. Without volunteer help, the sanctuary would be unable to offer assistance to as many animals as the workload would be too great. Therefore, volunteers not only play a major role in caring for the animals but in keeping the whole operation sustainable and able to continue to care for these wonderful creatures.

Volunteers on this project can expect to participate in a number of tasks, including:

  • Sort and assist with feeding as required
  • Feeding out to the animals and cleaning the animal shelters
  • Working in the organic garden
  • Raking and yard work – keeping all pathways clear and presentable
  • Fixing fences and other infrastructure
  • Brushing, playing with and walking the dogs

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:30am Breakfast at the hostel

Time to relax at the hostel or explore central BA.

11:30pm Bus/Train to project site

12:15pm Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

12:30pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

Evenings Free time to relax and grab some dinner or explore the sights and sounds of central BA!

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Volunteers will have the ability to help animals in need, while being based in the bustling city of Buenos Aires, less than one hour away. It’s the best of both worlds; helping animals and having the opportunity to explore this wonderful city, known as the ‘Paris of South America’, filled with amazing architecture and fun nightlife and many cultural activities. Volunteers without two left feet can learn the tango – the traditional dance this country is famous for! This location offers many amazing volunteering and travel experiences for the international traveler.

Accomodatie

The hostel is well managed and meticulously clean, and Love Volunteers are usually all placed together.

All standard amenities are available in the hostel, including hot showers and modern bathrooms, laundry room with washing machine, air conditioning, microwave and there is even free Wi-Fi and computers! This is a perfect home away from home and a wonderful base for your stay in BA!

Private rooms and home-stay options are available on request (additional costs apply).

Jeugdherberg
Eten & Drank
Volunteers are provided with breakfast every day, and a cooked dinner three nights per week (included in program fee - includes main dish + drink). The food is plentiful, tasty and fresh! This gives volunteers to opportunity to use the remaining nights to experience the amazing culture and cuisine that Buenos Aires has to offer. Simply get a few of your fellow hostel mates together and head out to one of the hundreds of local restaurants, bars, cafes or Churrascaria’s (Argentina’s famous BBQ joints – YUM!).

Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Ministro Pistarini Airport (EZE) in Buenos Aires. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Argentinië.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Argentinië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Argentinië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Argentinië.
