"We attended a two-week volunteering programme at the rescue centre situated in San Ramon, Costa Rica. We thoroughly enjoyed our time; it was a very rewarding experience. Walking the dogs and caring for the cats was one of the highlights. Additionally, witnessing the dedication and time spent by all staff members was inspiring and a pleasure to be a part of. Even though none of us our vegetarian we loved every dish, each one was different and super tasty. Thanks to the project we were able to take part in an activity of our choice for free, we choose canyoning which was an incredible experience and would highly recommend! Free laundry was also a big bonus. Thank you and good luck to all of you at the rescue centre, we hope to see you all soon. Lots of love Jess, Didi and Sophie (p.s. your favourite volunteers)."- Jessica Floyd
