Subject: Free Long-Term (3-month) Accommodation for Animal Lover in Belize
Anything people can do to cross-post is much appreciated!
PAW (Protect Animal Welfare) Cat Sanctuary and Humane Society on Caye Caulker (pronounced Key Corker) in Belize Central America needs a long-term volunteer and a long-term veterinary volunteer. Stay three months helping the sanctuary and your beach-side accommodations plus a continental breakfast are provided for the duration of your stay. Check out the PAW website to see these great accommodations right on the ocean. Volunteers work around 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon with some flexibility in the schedule to explore the great dive sites of the region or work on your own projects, writing, readingâ€¦
NOTE: PAW Founder, Madi Collins asked me to help her find one animal-loving volunteer and one veterinarian (possibly retired orâ€¦) volunteer during an interview for The Voluntary Traveler podcast. That interview will be available next week, but the sanctuary needs help ASAP. The details of this long-term volunteer position are NOT on the PAW website, but it is a great starting place to learn about the sanctuary and sink into their beautiful photos from the island.
Please send/link people to the Voluntary Travelerâ€™s website Voluntourism News page, to read about this long-term volunteer program. PAW is desperate for help and Collins has not had a day off in several years. Letâ€™s all volunteer from home to spread the word and get the sanctuary some help.
Interested volunteers can contact Madi Collins via the PAW website, or through her email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bye the way, if you are going to Caye Caulker to dive and donâ€™t wish to volunteer, these adorable accommodations in the heart of the island are also available to rent with the proceeds helping the sanctuary.
