Animal Place Sanctuary Internships
Put your compassion into action and join us for an animal sanctuary internship. Your residential, live-in internship will be a memorable experience spent working hard at our 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, CA. Choose to pursue an animal care internship, animal rights internship, or a vegan farm internship.
Interns become intimately familiar with the operations of a nonprofit sanctuary, the behavior of farm animals in a non-production setting, and will have an amazing experience working alongside like-minded people.
