Current Volunteer Opportunities

SOCIALIZING - All of our animals are rescues and come from varying situations, so we like to try and keep them as social as possible.  This may include simply laying in the grass or hay with some food, and see if they will come around you.  We want our animals to not just be ok with other animal interaction, but also humans.  We need you to help keep them happy.

FEEDING - While volunteering, you may be tasked with the job of filling up feed bowls or brining food out to the animals.

BUILDING - We are constantly growing and adding new things to the ranch.  If you are willing and able to help build things on the day you volunteer, we greatly appreciate it. 

GENERAL LABOR - There are always little things to do at the ranch, this may include moving hay, cleaning, digging holes.  If you are able to do any of these, we greatly apreciate it.
