Animal Husbandry
One of our volunteers helping out around the barn!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with HOOF! Many of the jobs that come with this volunteer spot are not glamorous and can be dirty and grueling (cleaning habitats, collecting manure, cleaning workspaces, building/construction, maintenance, etc.) but these jobs are very important to the health and safety of our animals.

HOOF works closely with Greenlands Farm, the bona fide farm where HOOF is located, in educating about animal and environmental science, animal welfare, and sustainable practices. Some of the projects you will be helping with are in benefit of Greenlands Farm. Helpers Of Our Farm is a small nonprofit with not enough income to support the animals and programs and HOOF depends greatly on the donations from Greenlands Farm to continue. Your help with Greenlands Farm, in turn, helps keep HOOF going!

Mission Statement

We are Helpers Of Our Farm! Helpers Of Our Farm (HOOF) is a nonprofit organization centered around education and providing a sanctuary for rescued, donated, and in-need farm animals. Our mission is to provide continued care and a sanctuary to farm animals in need, educate children and adults by creating awareness of rescues and their needs. By teaching animal science, animal welfare (care), and kindness we hope to create a more caring society and bring a positive influence on the lives of animals. HOOF is a platform for the community to learn, grow, and volunteer.

Description

Greenlands Farm started a rescue petting farm in 2011 with a vision to provide a sanctuary to farm animals and an educationa l platform for the community. Whether adopted from other rescue organizations, donated from owners, or taking in an animal because the farm could provide a good home, these animals are now a part of our farm and have a new life. Greenlands Farm friends established Helpers of Our Farm (HOOF), a not for profit organization that supports these rescued animals and the education and services they provide. We are "Helpers of Our Farm" not only because these animals depend on humans to help them, but also because these animals help us by teaching us how to love, care, and learn from them. They perform an important task of educating visitors during our tours, petting farm, and farm classes. The goal has always been to integrate education into the lives of our community through the lives of these animals.
