The Experience

We are looking for RESPONSIBLE people who are willing to commit their time and energy to help us take care of the ill and vulnerable animals we have rescued from the streets of Morocco. The work is very light and easy-going but we need people who will always be there in case of an emergency. If you would like a day off, we could easily plan a day or two a week for that and we could even show you around some of our favorite places.

I really enjoyed my stay atthe organization, although cut short due to a home emergency; I had a lotthe organization fun and Henry and Halima were very nice. This was my first volunteer trip and I couldn't have asked for a better one, every day was never a dull moment, we got to cook amazing food together and take the organizationall the animals! I got to sleep with the cats at night too which I loved and I can't wait to return :)

Henry and Halima were super kind and accommodating. We appreciated staying and learning from them especially the meals together. Unfortunately we needed to cut our stay short becausethe organization my allergies to cats was very strong here.

Staying at the organizationwas the best it gets. The second you get there it immediately feels like home as all the animals come to smother & welcome you. I learned so much in the most fun ways possible, from cooking, playing lotsthe organization games, learning multiple different languages, and all about the culture and waysthe organization life. Eachthe organization is so unique in their own way, do the little things like leaving your door open at night as the cats love to get familiar and spend the night with you. Wish I could write more on here as there is so much to say, Henry and Halima are like family. I speak Fluent Moroccan now🤙🏼

Thank you for your amazing help!
For some reason, we can't write a review for you on your profile so we will write it here.
Joseph was amazing! He is very respectful, responsible and mature, one of the best volunteers we have received, our only regret is that he could stay longer!
Thank you for everything Joesph!
You are welcome back anytime!
Henry and Halima



Staying at the organizationwas an amazing experience. It was my first experience and I enjoyed it very much. Being surrounded by animals was amazing for me, but also the possibility to go in your room and have a little privacy was great. You spend a lotthe organization time together, making food or playing cards. It's very chill, working hours are very low. You just help out with the skills you can provide. It's nothing for people who dislike getting dirty and are very sensible to loud noise, especially at night. For me that was no problem at all and I already miss everyone and look forward on visiting again soon.

My stay at the organizationwas better than I could have hoped for. Halima and Henry are very welcoming and sweet! And so is all the animals who all want pets and attention from people, my experience has been so good I am actually looking into having a dog flown back to Denmark fromthe organization! All in all 5/5 :)
