Our traditional volunteer program requires that our helpers be at least 16 years old to work with animals. But many young teens want to experience what it’s really like to roll up their sleeves and get a little dirty cleaning cages and mucking stalls! This new program will offer just that opportunity, by providing experienced volunteers and staff to coach and supervise participants, ensuring a fun and safe volunteer session.
Activities will include a combination of animal care chores as well as support chores. Depending on the session, these may include cleaning cat cages, sorting donations, walking dogs, washing dishes, folding laundry, giving veggies to our small animals, washing floors, mucking stalls, feeding animals, picking paddocks, cleaning the coop – whatever is most needed!
The program takes place every Tuesday and Thursday in the small animal shelter, from 3:30-5:30pm, and on select Saturdays in the barn from 9-11am.
