Together, We Can Inspire a More Compassionate World for Farm Animals.
We are working to build a nationally recognized sanctuary, outreach and education center to inspire a more compassionate world for farm animals.
Join us as a short or long term volunteer and let’s work together to connect our community through compassion.
Animal care shifts include cleaning resident living areas, replenishing feed and water, helping to keep other areas of the sanctuary clean and organized, and giving the animals some love and attention. Each task directly contributes to the absolute best quality of care for our residents!
Prior experience caring for farmed animals is helpful, but not necessary to get involved! Our staff and volunteer guides will teach you everything you need to know to care for our residents with success.
To become an Animal Care volunteer at Luvin Arms, you must attend Training Shifts which are available on the My Impact Opportunities page which will be accessible when the volunteer application is completed. Training Shifts are hands-on, shifts where limited numbers of new volunteers learn safety protocols, policies and procedures, and are shown animal care procedures by our Care Team Lead. They are very much like regular Animal Care shifts, but with an experienced staff member by your side.
Upon completion of Training Shifts, the entire animal care shift schedule will be opened to you on the My Impact volunteer system. You can then sign up for shifts on a schedule that works for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At Luvin Arms, each animal care shift is led by at least one experienced staff member. Staff members are responsible for everything that happens during a shift. They give direction to the volunteers working with them, and share timely and important animal care updates as needed. Animal care staff members are there to make sure that our volunteers and residents are safe, happy, and supported.
Closed-toe, sturdy shoes are required at all times for animal care volunteers, and for all other visitors and volunteers at Luvin Arms. We highly recommend that you wear long pants during your care shift, and dress comfortably for the weather.
Please bring anything else with you that will make you comfortable: work gloves, hats, sunglasses, sunblock and bug spray, dust masks, snacks (plant-based only, please), etc.
