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, reading…

NOTE: PAW Founder, Madi Collins asked me to help her find one animal-loving volunteer and one veterinarian (possibly retired or…) 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 Traveler’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. Let’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: pawanimalsanctuarybelize@yahoo.com

Bye the way, if you are going to Caye Caulker to dive and don’t wish to volunteer, these adorable accommodations in the heart of the island are also available to rent with the proceeds helping the sanctuary.
