What We Need
Most importantly, we need volunteers to help take care of our dogs and cats. Tasks include dog walking, washing dogs, special care for sick/disabled dogs, cleaning the catteries, changing their litter etc. You must not be afraid to pick up poop!
No special skills are required, all can be taught here, but an approach and love for animals is required. Any other skills you may have that are connected to animals will be a great help.
In addition to the above, we are interested in hearing from volunteers who have skills and proven experience in videography, social media, photography and website development to help us with online marketing.
There are also other possibilities for our volunteers to assist in working at our hotel on reception, gardening etc.

Additional Info about Us
We are 15 life-long friends, all Israeli and vegan animal-lovers who moved to Costa Rica in 2005. We established a non-profit, no-kill charitable organization founded on the belief that all animals deserve respectful and loving treatment and must be protected by humans as well as by law.
Whenever we come across animals who are abused, abandoned, sick or injured, we take action to prevent further suffering and give them a safe and loving home.
We have over 700 animals including cats, dogs, horses, geese, ducks, goats, sheep and hens as well as the local wildlife of the cloud forest where we are located.
We also run a hotel and resort called Lands in Love, as well as 2 vegan/vegetarian restaurants – all on the same site as the animal rescue center.
