The project needs dedicated and committed volunteers to help with the many tasks and activities at the center.

As a volunteer, you would be tasked with preparation of feed and feeding of horses and other animals and maintenance and repairs to assisting the vet and cleaning the paddocks. The work can be physically demanding and the animals at the farm will be your number one priority.  Care and give love to horses that have suffered abuse and neglect in the past and experience the wonderful surroundings of the farm.
