My partner and I (english and scottish) run a sanctuary for donkeys and horses and dogs in a remote and beautiful area in the mountains of south east crete. Our nearest town is Ierapetra.

We also have organic olive trees and like to grow our own vegetables.

We need help with day to day work with the animals - cleaning,grooming, helping with any treatment etc. Training horses, construction work - anything and everything

5-6 hours a day with 1 day off.

We also need help with general repairs etc.

in summer time we start work early in the morning before it gets hot and work again in the cool of the evening.

In the winter time we would like help to collect olives, firewood etc.

Helpers must like living in a remote location and enjoy the company of animals.The village of Anatoli where there is a shop and basic taverna is about a 3 km walk uphill - pleasant on cool evenings but not advisable in the heat of the Cretan summer days. Hiring transport is essential to get to and from the sanctuary (a mountain bike, scooter, or car can be hired locally for a good price)

We can provide en suite room accommodation in the village and 1 cooked meal a day. Breakfast and other meals can be made in your room where there is a microwave and fridge.

If preferred you can camp at the sanctuary

No experience is necessary but a genuine love of animals and a sense of humour is!

We would prefer longer stays of about 1 month but will offer a review after one week

non-smokers only
