Ever dreamt of becoming a volunteer and working towards a worthwhile cause? Then how about making that dream a reality by joining us? Take up this amazing opportunity to venture to the beautiful state of Idaho and care for orphaned, sick, injured and neglected horses!

These amazing creatures are in deep need of your help! Volunteer now for a minimum duration of 4 weeks and care for the horses! Though you have lots of spare time to engage in fun activities such as horse riding, it is important to remember that you are here to help wherever assistance is needed! The work with the horses may not be hard but it isn’t easy as well and should not be considered an ‘easy holiday option’. You will be involved in animal care, food preparation, cleaning, maintenance and educating the public.

Apart from the horse rescue center, the founder also partners with another wildlife rehab facility that’s close by and as a bonus, volunteers will also be able to help from time to time. At the facility, you’ll not only be working with horses but with a wide range of other wildlife such as; raccoons, deer, geese, birds, etc.!
