Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary!

We are currently looking for committed, reliable people who love animals to help us here at the farm. Below are areas we need additional help.

  • Public events help – Assisting with property clean up, on and off-site event set up, welcoming guests to the sanctuary, etc.
  • Property clean-up – Mucking barns/stalls, trash/debris pick-up, sweeping and organization and various other projects.
  • Equine whisperer – We’d like to find someone who loves to works with horses and/or donkeys, is knowledgeable about their behaviors and help us understand how to meet their needs beyond health care, food and water.

At this time we do not offer any internships.

We are not currently able to accommodate group volunteering. As we house a lot of animals, we prefer to screen individuals who could potentially have access to our property and animals and we currently cannot do that effectively with groups.
