About Us

We are two people, Sonja and Peter, with a big heart for animals. In 2004 we started a special animal shelter "Het dierenthuisje" what actually means "a cosy home for animals". Our shelter is in the first place a refuge for animals in need for whom a ‘normal’ refuge is not an option anymore because they are too old, have medical or mental problems. We don’t use cages, so all the animals can move freely on our property. In 2013 we moved to another location that's much bigger where we can offer shelter to many more animals. We are specialised in cats, but we also have dogs, rabbits, pigs, chickens and pigeons. We take care of more than 200 animals.

Help Required

The daily operation of our animal shelter requires a lot of work. And besides the regular work such as the daily cleaning, feeding and so on, we are still busy with renovating or improving the new location. As a non profit organisation, we can’t afford to pay somebody, but what we can offer is a very nice and quietly situated accommodation and food, together with an unforgettable experience abroad. We love to travel ourselves and we like to meet new people, get to know different cultures, so this type of cultural exchange is absolutely something we are very much interested in! We think this is the perfect opportunity for a couple or two friends. We prefer a minimum stay of 4 weeks, because it takes some time to get to know the animals and the tasks but if you can't do that you may always let us know how long you want to stay.

Hours & Roster

We can't get everything done anymore with the regular volunteers so we are looking for extra help: People who we can count on so we can make a weekly schedule. That must offer us the possibility to get some time to breath because now we actually should work day and night to get everything done. Therefore we hope we'll get some extra helping hands.
