Volunteer with Barn Sanctuary
2 people are interested
Volunteering at Barn Sanctuary provides an opportunity to work up close and personal with farmed animal rescues while helping to provide their direct care. The bulk of volunteer responsibilities at consist of physical chores. Volunteers will be responsible for mucking out stalls/pens, yards, and pastures; laying clean bedding in living areas; scrubbing and refilling waters in each living space; and restocking hay, straw, and wood shavings in each building. Occasionally the Animal Care team may require additional help with other tasks, including feeding and animal handling, from volunteers who are comfortable assisting. Volunteers are also welcome to brush and groom some of the larger animals once regular cleaning tasks have been completed. The animals require care every day of the year, regardless of the weather and we rely on committed volunteers to help tackle chores around the property rain or shine.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
