Join our team on our sustainable horse and animal rescue centre in Tenerife 2022 ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ’œ

Tenerife Horse Rescue Updated March 2022โ€“ We are looking for 2 people to work at the weekends (perfect for a couple)
Your role would be to feed, clean and care for the smaller animals. Collect the food donations (need to be over 25 with a driving license for this part) Help sort the food deliveries, and do some of the basic weekend work. Nothing that needs experience. The role is very relaxed and nice. The main point is that you will work 2 โ€œfullโ€ days rather than 5 part-time days (ike most of the volunteers do).

Your role would be to stay on-site the entire weekend with a team of 5 people. Obviously not working the entire time, but to be around for emergencies/tasks.
This role is ideally suited for people wanting to stay for a longer period (minimum 3 months) as you have a chance to work elsewhere during the week if wanted.

Benefits

Please see we are a registered animal charity and are 100% self-funded and non-profit building up.

We provide VERY rustic accommodation on our sustainable Finca. Beautiful area, amazing weather and close to the sea. Lovely location and many of our people have been here for up to 2 years already. But please note you will live on-site in a community, the accommodation is far from glamorous. We don’t have modern luxuries, even our washing is done on a bicycle washing machine. But what we do have is lovely people, great food ( we eat all freegan ) and an amazing project.

Requirements

You… MUST love animals and sustainability….. They are everywhere. This is a place for passion, good conversation, good food and creating something magical together. This is not a party place.
We provide the accommodation and all food ( not only the working days)
Starting as soon as possible and for minimum 3 months ( ideally longer if works well for both sides)


Join our team at our horse and animal rescue centre in Tenerife. Do you enjoy social media/ have basic experience with Instagram? Would you like to join our team as a voluntourist? Your role would be to manage our Instagram page, posts, reels, stories and help us to connect with people and grow our page. Also, show around occasionally visitors and influencers at the sanctuary.โœŒ๏ธ

2021 announcement

We have an amazing opportunity for the right person. We are looking for a live-in volunteer at our horse sanctuary in Tenerife. In exchange for your help, we provide all food and accommodation for part-time working.

Description

We are a small sustainable horse and animal sanctuary run solely by volunteers and are looking for 1 experienced horse person to join our team. For the right person, the position can be long term to help us grow the sanctuary. ( many of our volunteers have been here 1 or 2 years and the previous weekend girl was here for 3 years, from the beginning). The role is for weekends only. To feed, pick up poo, pick out feet (all barefoot, so we have a strict foot care routine) and keep an eye on horses.

There are only around 15 hours a week of actual work but you would need to stay on-site during the weekends. Then you would have Mon-Fri free to explore, ride or work elsewhere if you wanted (occasionally we may ask for dinner feed on Fridays, 1/2 hour work).

Requisites

The role is perfect for someone who wants to experience something totally different, passionate about horses and open-minded to live in a community-style with VERY basic living. Back to the country. Applicants must love horses (obviously); be experienced or open-minded to positive reinforcement way of training and very different lifestyles for horses. We do not have grass, big paddocks and easy access to all vet supplies.

It is a different world with challenging animal welfare. This is why we are here to work as a team and bring these animals a better life. So it would not be suitable for people who are not open to different ways and “making the most of what we have”.

Accommodation

Everything on site revolves around the animals, they come first and humans second. So accommodation is in caves/caravan/wooden huts. We have a big community open-air kitchen where 25 of us use and are now in the process of signing for new land to build a big track system. We will also have a second community area and more volunteers soon.
