CONTACTING EAGLES NEST

Please note that due to the recent media attention we have received, we have been inundated with phone calls and emails.

We ask that you please refrain from calling the wildlife hospital as our phone number is a WILDLIFE EMERGENCY HOTLINE.

We are grateful for the global media coverage we have had this week. An unintended consequence of this has been the volume of phone calls Harry is now fielding. We need you all to realize that the only phone line to Eagle’s Nest is the wildlife hotline. It truly must only be used for such, or Harry will end up missing an emergency and an animal may die as a result. For this reason, if you wish to volunteer or train and be assessed to take over and continue managing the Eagles Nest, please only use the email address below.

What he really needs right now are reliable, committed and trustworthy volunteers!

Please contact Harry on eaglesnestwildlifehospital.org@gmail.com and put in the subject line the following:

If you can volunteer in November (now) put “VOLUNTEER NOVEMBER”
If you can volunteer in December put “VOLUNTEER DECEMBER” and so on.

It may take Harry a short while to reply to your email, please be patient, it is all just one man and volunteers.

We urge everyone to assist us with donations. We are 100% dependent upon your donations to care for these beautiful animals. Your donation will be fully used for food, medical attention and to maintain the animal enclosures. We need your help as more and more animals are presenting every day!

Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated. Please click here for more information on how to donate.

Thank you for your support!

  1. Hello sir,

    I currently live in Massachusetts USA and would be honored to run your animal rescues for you. I am 26 years old but my whole life I’ve helped care for and rehabilitate animals especially the exotic types. Ive taken in sugar gliders, hedgehogs, parrots, aquatic animals, etc. I am sadly not as experienced with the larger bird specifies but I am eager to learn how to care for those majestic creatures. I would greatly appreciate it if you considered me. My whole life I’ve spent trying to find a purpose for my
    Existence and this opportunity would be it.

    Hugs and kisses,

    Rayla

  2. Hi Harry Kunz

    My husband and I would love to come and continue the amazing job you do looking after the array of animals at the wildlife centre. We live in England. I am a veterinary surgeon and although I don’t see many exotic species I can quickly learn this. My uncle is a keen keeper of birds of prey. My husband grew up in Trinidad and has extensive experience looking after all kinds of wildlife. He could quickly turn our own home into a wildlife sanctuary but we don’t have the space! As you can imagine, this opportunity would be his dream job. We visited Australia for a few months back in 2012 and fell in love with the place. I worked over there also.
    Thank you for your time reading this. We hope to hear from you

  3. Mr. Kunz,

    I read that you are looking for someone to run your hospital and care for the animals. I have been in the medical field for over 20 years, granted that was taking care of humans, but I have the skills and knowledge to run a hospital. I grew up on a farm, and we rescued and rehabilitated many different types of animals. Where we lived we didn’t have kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, rhinos, etc. but we did have, on occasion, get some wild animals such as owls, bob cats, wolves, a sloth, and monkeys. Most of our rescues were domestic animals that were mistreated like dogs, cats, and horses. I have a deep love for animals, I learn very quickly, and can dedicate all of my time to insure these animals get all the love and rehabilitation they need. I can come out there immediately to start learning what you feel I need to know in order to carry on your legacy. I can even come out there for a probationary period if you would be more comfortable with that, whatever you feel is best I am willing to do. I know you will be receiving so many requests from people for this grand opportunity, but I guarantee you, you will not find anyone with a deeper love of animals, or someone who is more dedicated to saving animals.

  4. Dear Sir,
    I have been a veterinary technician for 28+ years in California and have worked with Raptors and other Wildlife with 2 different Exotics vets and several local Wildlife Rehabilitation centers handling Owls, Raptors, Snakes, rabbits. possums, reptiles of every description as well as coyotes and other warm blooded species. Myself and a couple of other veterinary technicians and one vet would be highly interested in running your Wildlife Rescue! All of us are extremely competent and well versed in these types of animals and we are an excellent team of professionals. Each of us (a group of 6 individuals including a vet) are quite serious and would love to explore the idea, if you think we might be able to help.

  5. Dr Mr Kunz,

    I have only read about your search for someone/some people to take over your sanctuary and provide the care and love for all the animals that you give them. My partner and I live in Sydney, I work in administration which would be very helpful in ensuring the sanctuary is run smoothly. We learn very quickly, and can dedicate all of my time to insure these animals get all the love and rehabilitation they need. . I know you will be receiving so many requests from people for this incredible opportunity, but I guarantee you, you will not find anyone with a deeper love of animals, or someone who is more dedicated to saving and rehabilitating animals back in to their natural habitat. I would love to hear from you.

    Kindest Regards,
    Alex

    1. How can you say that he won’t be of able finding someone else than you with a deeper love of animals?! I myself do love them very deeply and have even a lot of a respect to them than people, that besides of the number of people like me out there in the world and to whom this is a ‘DREAM JOB’.

      I just learned of Mr Kunz’s research of someone who would be able to run his sanctuary through a video on Facebook and I sincerly couldn’t believe my eyes, I camed here on a hurry but was really surprised of the amount of requests and after that I read some of them, I knew that I have no chance comparing myself to them, that’s the reason why I won’t be of sending one, other ways, I would have loved too because that is HEAVEN on earth for me!!

      Hopefully that the sanctuary won’t get run by some random guys and that Mr Kunz will be able of finding the very right one for it.

      Best regards from Morocco,

      Ayoub

  6. I for sure want to do this. But dont know a lot about the animals. Teach me how to do it and i will come and give it my best..
    I was in oz many times and it is my dream to live there snd work with animals.
    I am a widow from 54 years old. Live in Amsterdam.
    I am more than willing to help those poor animals.
    Even help with the animals will be a dream for me…
    Greetings

  7. Seems like you have a lot of responses! I may not have a chance, but here goes!
    Me and my girl would love to do this! She has worked with birds for quite some time and genuinely cares for them! I have always been knowledgeable about birds as well in the wild! This is a chance of a life time! And since we are done raising our families we would love to dive into these waters and care for these beings as well!
    The rest is up to you!

  8. Hi,

    It’s unlikely that you’ll want to leave your life’s work in the hands of a 23 year old animal behaviour student with only a couple years of industrial animal experience, however, I would love the opportunity to even volunteer at your wildlife hospital. My goal in life is to work with animals rehabilitating them and if possible, releasing them back to their natural habitats. This sounds like an amazing place and I would love an opportunity to work/volunteer there, hopefully working my way up to possibly helping run it. But as long as I’m working with and helping animals, I’m more than happy. I would gladly move to Queensland for this opportunity, I have more passion than you can shake a stick at. It’s always been a dream to travel the world and end up finding a place like yours an working there. I would love this opportunity and think that with a little guidance I would more than up for this responsibility. I love animals and have had many of my own. I have worked with many different species of raptor for over a year now along with huskies and several mammals. My fiancée and I would love this opportunity. This sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity and whoever you chose will be a very lucky person.

    It’s doubtful that I’ll hear back, but I can hope, so that’s what I’ll do.

    Hoping to hear back from you,

    Jasmine

  9. Good day sir!
    I am sorry to hear you are retiring from such a wonderful career. You are a true shepherd of the earth and i hope you find a suitable replacement.
    I have been a wildlife lover my entire life, but have been caught up with modern day trappings (rent, auto payments, job and so on) that have limited my outdoor experiences.
    The opportunity to learn and care for animals has always been a passion I have wanted to follow.
    I am a 45 year old pool industry professional and looking for a new beginning. Something that matters. Something that will do the world some good.
    I am no stranger to hard work and would like to transition into a minimalist lifestyle. Personal prifit is no interest of mine, only knowledge and the ability to continue.
    On a lighter note, moving to Australia would eliminate my need to vote in the US again.
    I would like thank you for your time and wish you good luck in your search.

  10. Hi Harry Kunz.
    I am interested in taking up your offer at eagle nest wildlife sanctuary. I am a mother of a 14 year old girl called Olivia and have a lovely partner, Shaun. we currently own many domestic animals and it would be wonderful if we could further this range. We grew up on a country farm. I have just finished my certificate 3 in animal studies/ vet nursing in tafe. And we have been members of ARC NSW for quite some time now. we have had much experience with handling and care taking wild animals and rehabilitating them. i have owned various breeds of birds including lorikeets, galas, finches etc. it would also be very nice to have a change of scenery. we love animals and we are very keen on helping continue your legacy. We would love to have as much experience with the reptiles as we possibly can. me and my daughter have previously hand reared scaly lorikeets. We would love to take up this once in a life time opportunity.

    yours sincerely
    Virginia Saunders

  13. Hi, I’m not sure if this is the best way to contact Harry Kunz.

    If you’re reading this, Harry, I wanted to say I love your work and passion for animals! I’m sure you’ve been flooded with emails regarding being your successor, after the article on the internet came out. I’m sorry that I’m another. I wanted to know if you’ve found someone to take your place when you retire?

    It has always been my dream to live simply in the middle of nowhere and grow my food and have lots of animals. I always wanted to grow up and take care of animals (medically and otherwise), but I could never bring myself to work at a veterinarian’s office, because so many people are horrible and want to euthanize their animals rather than giving them the medical care they need, and I just couldn’t do it. My mom and I have always said that if we won the lotto, we would have a giant animal rescue. As it is, I’ve spent tens of thousands just on my own dogs’ health issues. =\

    A little about me: I’m Desiree. I love animals of all kinds! I try to support rescues and sanctuaries, I’m 36, female, vegan (duh, I love animals, I’m not going to eat them), and engaged to a young man who is going to school to be a doctor. He also adores animals, of course, and is very hopeful about this opportunity (even though I read that school costs are perhaps even higher in Australia than here? I can’t believe that’s the case!). I’m taking classes and studying herbalism, because I want to offer herbal medicine and treatments to people and animals. 🙂 I eventually wanted to take some veterinary classes, so you being willing to show me how to care for the animals is so amazing!

    I do live in the US, but since this sounds like my dream life, we are definitely willing to move to there permanently. (We were already discussing leaving the US at some point, because our country is ridiculous.) I looked into Australia’s migration info, and it doesn’t seem too difficult to become a permanent resident, though I admit, I haven’t yet researched it fully.

    I obviously have more questions, but they don’t really matter unless you’re interested/think it’s feasible. If you haven’t found a suitable replacement yet, and you’re seriously interested in the possibility of us being the ones, then maybe we can discuss me booking a flight there in the coming months, and perhaps working with you for a couple of weeks, for you to get to know us and see if you think we’re a good match to carry on your torch. 😍

    I’m not sure how to have you believe that this is a serious inquiry/proposition, and not the same as a thousand others you’ve probably received.

    Thanks for reading this, hope to hear from you, whether you’re interested or not!

    – Desiree Sargent

  14. I’m not going to write out a long essay as to why I’ve dedicated my life to the protection of the environment or why I believe in the sanctity of caring for, protecting, and helping animals flourish. That is something that is evident in my reply. What I will say, is that this is the first time in my life I’ve ever seen and felt a real opportunity to become something and someone I was meant to be. I saw this and felt my heart explode and almost didn’t believe it. I know it’s a shot in hell, but that’s all life is, and this is the only one I have. I would be honored and ecstatic to continue to be a sanctuary for the animals, protector of the land, and a moral compass for all those who enter. If you choose me, I’ll make it my life’s work to not let them down. Thanks for reading!!!

  15. I am heading there in February and plan to come and see your place. I was a former zoo keeper and work with wild black bears in Minnesota. If the job is still open I will inquire.

  16. I am interested in your wildlife center. I have been obsessed with animals since I was a little girl. I’m always rescuing some kind of animal. I actually just took care of some orphaned opposums not to long ago, all 4 made it. I’m always taking in some kind of animal. I have an unconditional love for animals and it has always been my dream to own a wildlife center and an orphanage for unwanted children. I would love and care for every animal there unconditionally.

  17. I can see that you’ve already been inundated with lots of interesting candidates to run your great sanctuary and as well you should. I would also like to express my interest in taking your sanctuary on as well.

    I am a certified wildlife rehabilitator who has worked with many different species in several countries since I gave up being an accountant to work with animals 7 years ago.

    While I don’t have the most experience, I have bags of enthusiasm and passion for animal welfare and I know how rewarding it is to see wildlife that you have cared for released back to the wild.

    I live in England but have visited Queensland before and I still have friends in the country so relocation will be no issue.

    Lloyd

    Me and my husband would love to take care of al the animals .
    We live in holland

  19. g’day,
    What a great opportunity! i,m Kristel and i am 41 year old. I live in a house in Holland with my husband and my two rescue dogs. i have lived in Australia for over a year (long time ago) and i am still in love with the country the people and the animals. we have been looking for something like this for a while, and here it is presenting itself on FB. Must be in the stars. we love to take care of all the injured animals. We both have no veterinarian background unfortunately, but we are fast learners and our love for animals will help us with that. We are in the opportunity to move to Australia fast if needed. Hope to here from you soon. Love Kristel and Sander ( and happy and mazzel)

  20. Hi, Harry Kuntz and staff!

    I just read news about all the amazing work you’ve been doing for the animals and your wish to retire. My name is Jonatas Costa and I believe you guys know by now that I’m a foreigner. It might be impossible maybe because of my nationality or my age. But this wildlife hospital is something fantastic. I’ve never heard about this kind of hospital here in Brazil and this search you’re doing is crazy. Crazy enough to make me write to you now and hope for a turn in my life. I’m a teacher, but not a very happy one. Since I was a child, my dream was to become a veterinary doctor and take care of the animals my way, without asking for money. But it’s impossible in Brazil. If the veterinary doctors do so, they lose their right to take care of the animals and they can’t even buy the materials for helping them anymore. Things are a little messed up here. There still are many steps ahead of me to make this veterinary dream come true. Even without the necessary knowledge, even not being australian, I want to apply. If there is no better option left, try considering me. I’d leave my country behind and I’d learn everything as fast as possible.

    Greetings

  22. Dear sir,

    Wauw what a lot of reactions from people who are willing to help you. That must be over welling and wonderful.

    We would also love to help you.
    My husband is truck driver and drivers through Canada and the US and I am a loving mother of our 6 year old son.

    We both come from a small farm and love animals. We would love to help you and learn from you and slowly take it all off your hands.

    Wish you all the luck with finding the one person to take care of your live work.

    With kind regards,

    Jonathan and Marieke Bentvelzen

  23. I am writing today after thinking about the sanctuary for many days. It has touched my soul in ways that not many would understand.

    Several years ago my life was in a very dark place. Somehow life did not want me to stop living. My sister thought that if I could just find that spark, it would make all the difference. She found a live feed of a Peregrine nest near our old home and said it was amazing. So I went to it.

    And. It. Changed. Me. Forever.

    Looking into the eyes of that Peregrine sitting on her 3 eggs shook me to my core. She was so very beautiful. And fierce.

    I was hooked. I learned everything I could about them. Spent hours on that cam. Became invested. Started a Facebook page for the Peregrine nest that has over 1000 likes. Have friends that I am still connected to today. And met the love of my life.

    Raptors have come to mean rebirth, survival and peace to me. There is nothing I love more than to monitor a nest of Peregrines.

    My boyfriend and I dream of the day when we can have our own slice of heaven to rescue the animals we love (we have 6 cats, 2 were adopted, 2 were given up, and 2 were rescued, the latest one had to have one eye removed). We both love Parrots and have had those as well. We both want to be rehabilitators. And it will all happen in time.

    Many blessings for all you do.

    You give me hope.

    Namaste.

  24. Looking at all the posts, I’m guessing I don’t have the slightest chance of being considered. I have no medical experience except working in optical and administration. My husband is a cook/carpenter/trivia host. But I can say I’ve always dreamed of winning the lottery and buying some land and starting my own sanctuary. I’ve never really gotten used to seeing animals lying in the road over here in the Tacoma Seattle area. We get a lot. I will never forget the time I saw a mother raccoon dragging one of her 3 babies bodies out of the road that had bit hit. I wept all the way to my husbands work. To be in a place that catered to such tragedies and to be able to save even one would fill my heart with joy. I’m more worried though on how hard I would take it when dealing with death. Not sure how I would even get there. But I’d be willing to sell everything I own for a chance. Australia would also be a dream of mine. I figured it couldn’t hurt to throw my hat in the ring. I think what your doing is wonderful. All my best wishes.

  25. Hi,

    I saw this video on Facebook about ‘who cares’
    This guy is looking for someone to take over his house and all the animals he is taking care off.
    Me and my wife and 2 kids are very interested and would love to come in contact with this man.

  26. Dear Mr. Kunz,

    My name is Amanda and I’ve been training my whole life to run your sanctuary. I grew up on a rural farm and I’ve always had an affinity for wild things. My family called me “Snow White” because every time I went off for a walk, I would come back with an animal following me home. Whenever I came across anything injured I would care of it and if possible release it back into the wild. I became known in the area for being a caretaker, and later people would bring me animals to mend. I have cared for a variety of species including birds, reptiles, and mammals, and I have a special place in my heart for raptors.

    When I got older I put myself through college working on a goat farm and animal rescue. The dairy goats helped keep the rescue afloat, as well as donations from the community. At school, I volunteered at a raptor rescue that had a facility on my campus. I got my degree in wildlife biology, and worked on a wind turbine farm studying bird and bats. The wind turbine farm was an amazing experience. I encountered many animals that I never would have thought would be in the area, especially some migratory birds, and strangely enough an emu! Working as a wildlife biologist allowed me to get some extra training. I am certified to handle venomous snakes, and desert tortoises.

    I am not afraid of hard work. Growing up on a farm has its challenges. My father taught me to work on cars, use tools, and various forms of construction. Over the years I have built or repaired fences and enclosures, done concrete, and even fine woodwork.

    Running a rehabilitation/rescue for wild animals has been my dream for as long as I can remember. I am well suited to the work, I am trained in many important areas, and most of all, I have a love for animals that will never fade.

    I hope that you will consider me.

    Thank you,

    Amanda

  27. Harry,

    I’m not going to tell you how much I’d love to do this. I think everyone would dream of something like this.

    But i will say, if there is the slightest chance… Don’t let someone take over your sanctuary.. Their dreams will never be your dreams. Their opinions, thoughts and desires will always be their own.

    You are such an exceptional man, an inspirarion, and you have built this amazing sanctuary and I just don’t think anyone is going to compare.

    I’d love to work with you to make sure that whichever path you go, the sanctuary is protected and will always be yours and that you have a team of people protecting it. I just think it’s too much for you to give away to someone who will be very different to you.

    Good luck Harry
    Regards
    Lizzie

  28. Hello Harry,
    I can’t believe that you would give all this away. I/My Family would love to run the park, My daughter (Jody Meyers) was murdered last august and we are looking for a family run business. We trust animals more than humans these days and would love a chance for a fresh start away from S.A. Please consider, We are quick on picking things up, Love animals and would give the best care. This would be a great opportunity if you could give us a go, This is once in a lifetime chance…. Please consider, PLEASE. Thanking you Lucy, x

  30. Hello Mr. Kunz;
    This is Steven Masek, I did not get the chance to tell you about some of my animal education. In the state of Florida I possess class 1 permits class II permits class 3 permits venomous reptile permits reptiles of concern permits as well as class 3 exotic bird permits. At this particular time I have everything from Burmese pythons to cobras, from kinkajous to striped skunks, geckos to iguanas, emu’s to owls, alligators to monitor lizards, Turtles and fish, parrots to porcupines. And many more animals that I have not listed, not to mention the animals that i rescue from the wild as well as some owners. Again you can check out some of my videos online or on my Facebook Steve masek or Steve Masek’s Animal Mania. I work a full-time job as a carpenter as well as take care of many animals as well as do talk shows and lectures in my spare time. I understand the work that goes into caring for many different species of animals. I also understand the importance of a good support system. Everything from volunteers to the support of the community. Again if you have any questions please feel free to contact me as I have many questions for you. Thank you very much Steven masek.

  32. To Whom It May Concern:

    I come across your story on Pennyhoarder, I’m very moved by what I read. I would love to speak with someone and find out the necessary steps I would need to take in order to make this dream of yours and mine a reality!!

    Sincerely,

    Davia E. Martin

  33. To Whom it May Concern,

    My name is Diana Paola Suárez and I’m a 22 year old Colombian student currently in my 8th semester of communication and journalism at la Universidad de la Sabana. I am contacting you because I wish I could realize an internship in your organization. Since I was a kid I wanted to do documentaries about wild life, nowadays I really want to learn more about rescue and conservation, I choose Australia because of the rich biodiversity.

    I Asked in my university and they Told Me That I can apply for a volunteering and they will accept it as internship if I realize duties of my carreer: taking photos, making videos, create media content for social, create campaings etc. Furthermore, I will be blissful to work in the field, sharing with animals and helping in everything that I can. I plan to do a short course of photography in Melbourne in February and i was wondering If You Could recieve me as a volunteer During six months, so i can Fulfill the requirments of my university. I have no problem if you can not pay me, i will try to find a job for covering my expenses. Hope you can help me, really is my dream to be Involved in the work you perfom.

    I know this request is maybe a lot, but being able to share with wild life, protect and study them and use my knowledge to contribute positively is my dream, so I promise I will be totally committed. I could help in communication duties, taking photos, making videos, creating content for social media and web pages; I have no problem in doing hard works, in fact, the best thing it could happen to me is being able to work on the field.

    My university request me an internship at least of 5 months ( I will love to do more if you aloud me), full time (8 hours).

    Sincerely I hope some of my experience could be helpful for your labor.

    During my years in the university I discovered I didn’t like only one aspect in general, but many different fields of my career. First of all I have a great interest in being part of social or development projects. This will allow me to implement my knowledge in communication and development because I would like to contribute positively to the various conflicting realities that are experienced globally.
    On the other hand, because of my work experience and my personal projects, I have developed great knowledge of digital marketing; how to use social networks to communicate about an enterprise, developing branding and create digital campaigns, all through combining my abilities of editing videos, taking photographs , copywriting and communication.

    Additionally, I’m a curious women and I like to do journalistic investigations. I
    have a great ability to adapt to any environment which makes it easy for me to search for information and establish dialogues with people from all walks of life. Furthermore, the different jobs I have done allowed me to manage difficult populations and improve my communication skills. Nowadays I speak fluent Spanish and English. I have basic command of the French language. I can establish a simple conversation, understand and write basic texts and I desire to study and become fluent in the future.

    Since 2014 I collaborated in “Fundación SanRoque Lucila Carmona”, this entity nonprofit that houses 150 dogs, working for their welfare, through the rescue, recovery and subsequent relocation. My responsibilities are management of social networks, implementation of activities to raise funds, search agreements with public and private sector, handling of dogs of different ages and temperaments.

    This has been the best experience of my life, I sincerely love all the dogs of the refugee. I also had some experience with cats and little snakes that we find in the streets; I have learn how to do basic first aids, vaccinated and dewormed.

    Due to the different activities that I have been involved in different cultural environments, I’m able to realize divers products using recycled materials.

    Also I have experience performing hula hoops, acroyoga and aerial silks, which allowed me to share knowledge and stimulate my imagination, meanwhile I promoted healthy activities.

    Please find attached my resume and feel free to contact me upon any questions or doubts. I shall be looking forward for your reply.

    In the splendid case that you receive me, I will just need a letter from you in which you notify my university you would like me to work there, and the legal documents that certify the organization.

    I Hope you can help me, I promise I will not defraud you, I will work hard and give the best of my self.

  38. Hi
    It’s a long shot here but I’ll give it a go, my names james Boyle 32 year old formwork carpenter from Ireland who moved to Australia in 2007, i worked up in cairns for several years including a bridge in atfherton not far from the park, I remember when I was a kid I use to tell everyone when I grew up, I was going the be a African wildlife veterinary or warden or guide or what ever got me close to animals, I even worked in a seal sanctuary in a small fishing village north of Dublin called skerries, I love animals and nature you have a lot of qualified people replying to your request, il be honest i work very hard in a job I’m pretty much not that interested in, i can do most trades and I am a quick learner, i don’t have veterinary skills I would need to learn, but I know if I put the same work ethic as I have into something that I could see my self as a child doing i would give it everything, I also have a 2 year son and another son on the way, I couldn’t think of a better environment to raise them, he already sets up from he’s toys when I put a wildlife documentary on, that’s why we’re planing on some day getting a house with a few acres raising them they way our parents were,
    I couldn’t believe when I saw this, you were looking for someone to take over your life work and what a life, a life I would love and hopefully pass on to my sons,
    I hope you find the right person,

    Thanks james

  41. Hi harry,

    I have been talking with my partner who you have met before at your sanctuary about coming up and doing some volunteer workin october. My partner in a number of zoos. She volunteered at the darlingdowns zoo where she was then given employment and she has travelled overseas and volenteered in zoos in africa and malaysia. She has a deep passion and love for all animals and their wellbeing. She has since started a position in retail and quickly moved up the ranks as a manager but her true passion lies with animals. I am a painter/plasterer with vast range of skills in the construction industry and would be more than capable of supporting us if we were considered in relocating and continueing your lifes work and i would strive to do my best to help maintain and build the sanctuary you have created. We have holidays bookes for mid october for two weeks of which we would like to come up and volunteer at your sanctuary and discuss further about this opportunity ro ensure this is a right fit for both parties. Look forward to hearing from you soon.
