Looking for an unforgettable experience? The Volunteer Internship Programs at Farm Sanctuary's New York and California Shelters provide individuals with unique opportunities to advocate for and connect with farm animals, establish community with like-minded people, and acquire valuable knowledge of the various facets of animal protection. Since Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986, interns have played a vital role in our efforts by enabling us to operate our shelters, conduct educational programs, and initiate campaigns to end the suffering of farm animals. Apply today and you too can contribute to Farm Sanctuary's life-saving work.

Farm Sanctuary Internships are available at our Orland, California and Watkins Glen shelters, as well as in various departments within our organization. Housing is provided for all interns who work at our California and New York Shelters. Occasionally, off-site internship opportunities may be available; in these special cases, housing is not provided.

Internships require a one to three month commitment; please see our website for exact requirements for your desired position. All applicants must be 18 years or older and committed to Farm Sanctuary's goals and programs. Intern space is limited; early application is recommended. Apply online at
