ORGANIZATION: WEST PLACE ANIMAL SANCTUARY

  • 3 people are interested

West Place Animal Sanctuary is a forever home for abused, neglected, and abandoned farm animals. We also rehabilitate wildlife and are a temporary holding facility for lost dogs in Tiverton and Little Compton. West Place does a lot to help the community, but we can't do it all ourselves! We need help from dedicated volunteers who believe in our mission. We are in need of volunteers to help in many different ways around our sanctuary.

Our healthy soil produces a lot of weeds! We need someone who can come and dedicate their time to weed wacking around the property in areas a mower cannot get to. We have a gas powered weed wacker and can teach you how to properly use and maintain the weed wacker.
