Animal care volunteers have the opportunity to work directly with a variety of farm animals that come from abuse or neglect situations. This rewarding opportunity allows you to spend your morning or afternoon around the animals and really get to know them. Responsibilities include feeding, cleaning, and various other projects to help maintain the animals living space, their housing, and the grounds of the sanctuary.

We do require at least a one-year commitment for animal care volunteers to be considered for the position. Volunteers have one 4hr shift each week and are we anticipate our volunteers to have a 75% attendance rate or more. Animal care never takes a day off. We also need people with reliable vehicles that can get through a snowstorm or other weather hazards. Volunteers must be able to work holidays if your shift falls on a holiday.
