FairyTale Sanctuary is located in Pravljica, 10 KM from Ljubljana, in an environment surrounded by forests, water and mountains.
We offer the possibility of being able to live day by day in a farm animal sanctuary. Living with animals that have been rescued from exploitation and knowing first-hand how they interact with each other, seeing the bonds of friendship that they establish between different species, and the resilience they have after having suffered a life of slavery.
The work is done inside the center. Volunteering is 5 days a week, approximately 6 hours per day, depending on the volume of work, arrival of new animals or patient care. It is an outdoor job, so you have to be willing to work in inclement weather, to stain yourself, get up early, ultimately get involved with animals. It is an intense and hard volunteering, but very comforting and positive.
You will work with different species: goats, cows, bulls, horses, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, pigeons, dogs, cats, etc. Each one with its character, with its adaptation process, with which it is necessary to know how to respect each individual to avoid unnecessary stress.
