Volunteer

You’ll be helping animals like Harley and Hendrix! They are best friends, and they’d like to invite you to be their new best friend!

We are always in need of volunteers! 

Begin by completing our volunteer application.  We’ll follow up with a telephone call to see how your skills and interests might be a match for our needs.

Volunteering does not have to mean a large time commitment, and you do not have to live near the Sanctuary to become a volunteer.  There are many ways to help.

Areas of opportunities include:

  • animal care tasks like cleaning stalls and feeding animals (for volunteers near Kingman, AZ)
  • outreach activities like events and fundraisers
  • clerical tasks
  • data/website/social media activities

Please contact us if you need community service hours for school, church, or probation.

Thanks for considering volunteering to help us help the animals!
