Is your organization interested in group volunteer opportunities with Animal Place? We are happy to host your organization for a day of farmed animal fun!
During your volunteer group experience, you will learn how to maintain and clean barns and pastures, and learn more about the history of Animal Place from our team of sanctuary experts. In addition, you will be able to meet and greet our amazing animal residents and learn more about their inspiring journeys.

- Refillable water bottle, hat and sunscreen
- Lunch (with respect to the animals, please bring only vegan food to the sanctuary - no meat, dairy, or eggs)
- There is no cost to schedule a volunteer group experience, but you are encouraged to bring your wallet and check out our fabulous merchandise! All proceeds go directly toward caring for our animal residents.
- Pictures are also highly encouraged, so make sure you bring your camera (our animals absolutely love to be photographed)! We will also take a group photo and tag you on social media!
