Rock Run Animal Rescue is located on a 20 acre farm. We are a 100% volunteer, non-profit equine sanctuary. We are looking for individuals who enjoy "farm work," being outdoors, and land maintenance.

Duties could include: mowing and weed whacking, maintaining flower beds, clearing fence lines, snow plowing/shoveling, manure management, and other basic handyman requirements.

Come be part of our team in providing a safe environment for the horses who call Rock Run, "Home."

About ROCK RUN ANIMAL RESCUE

Location:

PO BOX 272, NEWVILLE, PA 17241, US

Mission Statement

Rock Run Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Our mission is to care for animals in need by providing a supportive environment that encourages physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. In caring for our animals, we utilize holistic healing modalities in conjunction with contemporary veterinary care.

Description

Rock Run incorporated in 2012 to help animals in need. Rock Run Animal Rescue's animal services have been refined over the past decade to become primarily a sanctuary for horses. There is substantial need for elderly, retired, and/or infirm horses to have an opportunity to live out the rest of their natural lives, including many horses in our area.

We offer holistic care, specialized diets, medicine, choices, friendship of a herd, and lots of love. The horse's lives are in no less valuable as a result of not being able to be ridden, having physical ailments, or needing a home. While they have already served humanity throughout their lives, they continue to do so by offering people unconditional support, understanding, healing, learning, and growth.

Several of the horses at Rock Run participate in our program, Kintsugi Equine Gestalt Coaching. Together, the coach and horse, assist people with navigating through difficult emotional periods in life. Horses are natural healers, and are making a difference!

People helping horses helping people...everybody wins!!
