HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We simply cannot run our public days without volunteers! By lending your time and love for animals to The Gentle Barn, you will help us educate visitors on what we do and where our animals come from. By being a voice for our animals, you will help build the public's understanding of our healing work and the beautiful animals and people we serve.
Volunteer support is essential to our organization and our 170 animals. The Gentle Barn is always looking for amazing volunteers to help us on Sundays when we are open to the public and throughout the week.
Our volunteers provide extra care and attention to all of our animals, they introduce the animals to the public on Sundays by telling their stories, and offer additional help wherever needed.
Volunteering at The Gentle Barn is truly a rewarding experience, one that you will soon not forget!
We have many opportunities available, including Sunday Docents, Horse Groomers, Barnyard Buddies, Barn Hands, Office Support, and more!
Just an outgoing personality, a passion for animals, and a high level of comfort speaking with strangers!
