Update September 2022 – Take a look…๐Ÿถ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿ‘€
๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿค  ๐ŸŽA week at LIFE of fabulous characterโ€™s, people and animals
โ˜€๏ธ Sunny Daye, full of energy with a cuddle for everyone and all the animals! Ratka who lives marginally certainly needed support this week and a cuddle… A concert is coming up with Sunny to raise funds for LIFE too.. ๐Ÿค—Shaun our Namibian volunteer, took up camp at the Haven along with 5 horses, one way to horse bond is to look at the star’s together at night.โญ๏ธ
He quickly improved the pulling water from the well with a pulley system. Shaun has ridden the previously lightly backed horses and proved to be a very much apprecated Horse support for Lucy on Outreach. Darling Dazzler, lads call her Dazzy for short was the winning name pulled out of Shaun’s hat for a donation to enter. Rescued just last week, a nice 4-year-old Arab type of mare is visible under all the abuse she’s suffered… Shaun has been handling her and treating her wounds, she now rewards him by following him around like a puppy! Must be something special about Shaun’s hat that does not leave his head!
Longtime wonderful LIFE supporter Sarah took many much-appreciating dogs for walks with some loving and cuddles of course too. Duchess, Jon, Sandra and Flash walked are available for rehoming. Meanwhile, three very lucky LIFE dogs are happily travelling now to their forever homes, safe travels Faith, Tessie and Fondant, thank you, kind adopters, fun times ahead.
Update 2021

The super little cottage is rent-free in exchange for the care of horses and some voluntary work for L.I.F.E. Applicants must have experience with horses and/or dogs.

Previous announcement – We need temporary help at our horse rescue center in Bulgaria!
Update 2020 – October 2020


With the travel restrictions in place this year, LIFE has been unable to welcome as many volunteers as hoped and planned. If you are based in Bulgaria and are interested in getting involved as a volunteer, we would love to hear from you! The quality of life for our rescued animals is hugely enhanced by having a steady stream of volunteer helpers – and there are a wide variety of tasks for you to help with, keeping the days interesting and diverse.

We hope to be able to easily host international volunteers again soon…๐Ÿคž You can read more about our past volunteers’ experiences via the link.

In the meantime, we feel blessed to have Dee and Fiona with us once again. Thanks, ladies, and enjoy your week ๐Ÿ™‚

Update 2020 – 11/07/2020

Exciting news for LIFE! A team of 4 volunteers plan to come in October, among them an experienced barn builder!

But first, we will be looking at repairs to existing buildings, like the shelter for the rescued horses – protecting them from the sun in summer, rain and snow in other seasons. And two of the volunteers – veterans with LIFE – will be spending quality time with our rescued dogs!

There’s a variety of tasks that we always need help with here. As restrictions start to lift (fingers crossed!) we look forward to welcoming volunteers back to L.I.F.E.
