What an amazing place to come and volunteer. I was lucky enough to stay for 4 months in 2020 and what an unforgettable experience it was.
I am a qualified Vet nurse from Australia and was truly blown away at how happy and friendly all of the dogs are and how happy they are in their packs/groups. The staff there are beyond amazing, knowing each and every dog inside out. These dogs are the luckiest, they’re so very well looked after, amazing fresh home-cooked food everyday, lots and lots cuddles and kisses, they get to play around with their friends, go out in the playground and burn some energy then back to their “houses” for an afternoon nap. I mean what a life.
I cannot recommend this place more- if you get the chance, definitely get yourself here and meet some of the gorgeous faces. It does wonders for your soul.
"Having done a month's internship at "Happy Tails Sanctuary" has taught me a lot. It is located in Baie du Cap, a spacious place for dogs to feel good.
From my first day I loved working there. Over 80 dogs greeted me, some at first didn't want me to approach them but others were happy to see me. Even glad to see someone they don't know because they know it's a safe place and they trust humans. They are so happy in this sanctuary that they made me happy too.
I thought they would feel abandoned or even hurt, but the people who work at the sanctuary take good care of them and bring them great happiness. They know how to give them a second life.
The dogs never stay alone, even at night there is someone there to keep an eye on them. They ensure that all dogs can live together and try to improve their well-being , whether physical or mental. For example, Mr Sausage was a paralysed dog rescued on death row at the local pound. By doing massages and exercises, he learned to walk again."
