Interested in Volunteering at Traveller's Rest?
We need YOU!
Volunteers are an important part of TREES. We welcome those who wish to participate in offering new lives to senior horses, ponies, donkeys and mules that have had less than happy pasts.
We're looking for people who understand that it takes a fair amount of work - every day - to care for a herd of Elders. Experience working with horses is not a requirement; only the ability to recognize a dirty stall or paddock, or notice when a water tank needs to be refilled, and the willingness to perform tasks necessary to keep the horses healthy and happy. While time at the Sanctuary offers plenty of opportunity to interact with the horses, its not all fun and games.
Here is a small sample of some of the activities you may wish to help with:
Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age**, though minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when at the sanctuary. We look forward to working with you to make TREES a safe haven for our equine residents and to help owners of senior equine keep their horses healthy, happy and at home.
TREES welcomes clubs, school and college classes, scout troops, church groups and members of any other organization interested in a group project or seeking a way to meet community service requirements. **Minimum age requirement may be waived if the organization carries its own liability insurance.
