Volunteer Development Lead Unique Animal Welfare Startup


About Sanctuary Hostel

Sanctuary Hostel is an innovative nonprofit startup working to address the stray crisis all over the world, starting with Mexico. Our unique approach to addressing this problem involves building an eco-hostel that drives community-based animal welfare through educational programs. 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 currently have the land and architectural designs, and are actively fundraising for construction of the facility. As we continue to grow, we expect to collaborate and work with other nonprofits in both Mexico and the US to achieve our mission. Visit www.sanctuaryhostel.org for more details.
