Ways to help


Volunteer Activities

Typical volunteer activities include mucking the barn or the coop, raking, and pasture cleaning. Many of the animals will come visit you while you complete your tasks but please remember that some tasks may include minimal animal interaction.  Volunteering is physically intensive, so expect to get a good workout!  If you rather just visit the sanctuary and want to interact with the animals, we offer a short tour where you can feed the horses, pigs, and resident birds.

​​Volunteer Hours

Volunteer days often take place on weekends, some of our trusted and longtime volunteers are able to come during the week.

Age Restrictions

For safety and liability purposes, all volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.​

What To Bring:

  • Work gloves

Check the weather forecast for zip code 27705 and dress appropriately. Produce for the animals is very welcome – apples, bananas, carrots, melons, greens etc.
