The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for energetic volunteers to help with daily chores at Safe Harbor Stables located in Redmond. As a barn volunteer, you will help feed and water the horses, clean the horses' stalls and paddocks, clean grain pans, and sweep the barn aisles. You will also have an opportunity to provide much needed love and affection to the SAFE rescue horses. We have two primary chore shifts every day of the week: 9 am to noon and 4:30 pm to 7 pm. You must be 16 or older to volunteer at SAFE. We do accept volunteers age 13-15 if an adult is willing to volunteer with the youth. Orientation is required for all barn volunteers. Orientations are scheduled regularly each month. Familiarity with horses is helpful but not required.
