Marketing/Comms Team Lead Volunteer for Eco Animal Rescue

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: 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 relatively 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.

About Sanctuary Hostel


750 Otay Lakes Rd 1024, Chula Vista, CA 91910, US

Mission Statement

To create a self-sustained eco-friendly sanctuary where humans and animals can live in peace. By combining a hostel with the opportunity to volunteer with animal rescue, we offer you a place to stay, to help, and to learn about animals so enriching all our lives. You’ll also be able to give back and volunteer with animal rescue teams.


We are building an animal shelter/ hostel/ community garden. Our model aims to be self sufficient so we wont rely on donations in order to care for the animals we rescue. Travelers can stay and volunteer with us in exchange for a bed. The community can learn to grow and cook plant based meals with us.
