Volunteer At An Animal Shelter

The Volunteer Application Process At Ranch Hands Rescue Animal Sanctuary

With your decision to volunteer, you’ve taken the first step to further unite our community and bring both people and animals together in this place of healing. Your decision to donate your time will make a difference in saving a life, human and animal. Even if it’s only a couple of hours a week or month, your being here makes a difference. Contact us for more details.

NOTE: At this time, we are not allowing volunteers to work with our animals at the sanctuary; we have made this decision based on the fact that we are a trauma counseling facility. Many of the children that come to Ranch Hands Rescue for counseling have been physically and sexually abused. We are not allowing volunteers to work with our animals to ensure safety and privacy for our clients. We know everyone would love to pet and play with our animals, however, they are also trauma survivors who are working hard, and this is our main priority. From time to time we still need volunteers to help with events and large mailings.

If you are a member of the veterinary field and would like to donate some of your professional time to the animals on our ranch, please fill out the volunteer form as usual and note your experience at the end. Thank you in advance for your support!
