Come volunteer at Rescue Ranch!

Rescue Ranch is located on over 87 acres and home to 80+ animal ambassadors. We currently have over 175 volunteers who donate over 9,000 hours per year. Our volunteers serve on committees, assist with daily animal care, humane education programs, upkeep of our grounds, nature trail, off site booth events, seasonal decor and so much more!

Expectations

Punctuality & Commitment: Dedicated volunteers make up the majority of our workforce and we schedule hours according to animal care, educational, and event needs. It is vitally important that volunteers show up for shifts they sign up for.

Honesty & Kindness: While people come to Rescue Ranch for many individual reasons, our volunteers must be able to work well not only with our animals but also with other volunteers, visitors, and staff members.

Adherence to Policies: For everyone’s protection, volunteers are asked to always follow all Rescue Ranch policies and procedures as instructed by our trained staff members.
