Video Production Volunteer for Eco Animal Rescue

Sanctuary Hostel

Sanctuary Hostel is a project to create an animal shelter/ hostel/ community garden where we will work with other nonprofits in both Mexico and the US. Our model plans to be self-sustaining in that we will not rely solely on donations and thus not be at risk of returning animals to the streets. We have the land and are working with an architect to design custom buildings. As we are a brand new non profit organization we want to bring people into our organization to help us make this a successful project that can act as a model for animal rescues worldwide.

We are seeking volunteers to edit/produce videos to educate the public on the problems we are addressing, our unique solutions and offerings, and how they can help. This position is ongoing and offers flexible hours with specific responsibilities defined in collaboration with the Sanctuary Hostel core team. If you are passionate about the welfare of animals and sustainability, please get in touch! Apply using our form:
