Caretaker for The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary Wanted
The Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary has a vacancy for a dedicated volunteer caretaker who wants to save animal lives!
The Black Sheep is an animal rights sanctuary on 26 acres of land at Otaki Forks. Currently we have just two permanent residents and one shorter term resident, and we will need more help from January 2014 as one of our awesome caretakers is moving away! We are looking for a responsible caretaker (or perhaps a caretaker couple) to live at the sanctuary, care for animals and work on projects to improve the sanctuary. Caretakers will be committed to helping animals and willing to follow a vegan diet while on the sanctuary land. You will be a practical person who is good with animals – we care for over 130 animals, including sheep, goats, horses, roosters, pigs, geese, cats and dogs. Ideally you will have your driver’s license, animal care skills and/or building skills too!
We suggest that anyone interested in being a caretaker lives at the sanctuary for an initial trial period of one week. If everything works out for you and us, you will move into the sanctuary house as a caretaker (we have a bedroom set aside for this, so you will have your own room). It’s a sunny warm space with awesome views and a little patch of sea! We tend to be a busy place during summer (with WWOOFers, volunteers etc staying), but it is much quieter during the winter months. You will have free accommodation, but contribute to power bills and provide your own (vegan) food, supplemented by our organic vege gardens. You will also spend 15 to 20 hours a week caring for animals and working on sanctuary projects.
The Black Sheep supports animal liberation, and is opposed to all forms of oppression — check us out at www.theblacksheep.org.nz and on facebook at
