Join our barn crew! Goats of Anarchy is a farmed animal sanctuary dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals with disabilities - especially goats! In exchange for unlimited goat cuddles and kisses, all we ask is that our volunteers help us keep our barn and animal yards clean!
We are seeking volunteers to work in the barn one day per week on a recurring, regular basis. There are two volunteer shifts each day of the week: 12pm-3pm and 3pm-5pm.
Duties vary by shift, but include:
- Cleaning and re-setting animal stalls
- Raking up the interior of the barn
- Raking up fallen hay in the goat yards
- Helping keep the hayloft of the barn organized
- Helping keep water buckets full throughout your shift
As volunteers gain experience, there is room to take on more responsibility if desired. And YES, there is plenty of time to cuddle with the animals when the work is done :)
Volunteers must be 18 years or older. However, we can accept volunteers as young as 15 if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please note that volunteers must be capable of lifting roughly 40lbs.
For more information and to hear what our current volunteers have to say, please visit www.goatsofanarchy.org/volunteer.
Interested in volunteering?
Because our volunteers are such an essential part of our day-to-day operations, we require a weekly commitment on a recurring, ongoing basis (example: every Wednesday from 3-5pm).

Additionally, all new volunteers will be required to fill out a Covid questionnaire when they arrive on-site. We expect volunteers to stay home if they become exposed to or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19.
- 12:00 PM to 03:00 PM

Goats of Anarchy is a farmed animal sanctuary dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of goats with disabilities. We teach acceptance and inclusion, advocate for animal rights, and promote veganism.
At Goats of Anarchy, our mission is three-fold.
Our first priority is providing a safe, loving forever home to farmed animals in need - especially those with disabilities. We take in animals with all types of disabilities, ranging from blindness to mobility impairment to neurological disorders. We work tirelessly to ensure that every animal under our care can thrive, even when the cards are stacked against them.
A large part of advocating for animals is working towards creating a world where animals don’t need to be rescued. As such, one of our objectives is to use our platforms to educate people about a vegan lifestyle. Simply put, veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation of and cruelty to animals. It’s a compassionate outlook that views animals as sentient, valuable beings, rather than commodities.
The animals have taught us so many lessons, and we strive to pass those lessons on to others by telling their stories. One of our greatest hopes is that our animals will help teach the world inclusion and acceptance of disabilities. It warms our hearts to see our animals treat each other as equals, despite all their differences, and we see them as great examples of how humans should walk through the world.
These goals drive everything we do, and we invite you to join us in our mission to "fight like a goat" for the animals who need us most!
