Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We can always use help with laundry, sweeping, cleaning kennels, raking, picking poo, mucking donkey stalls, cleaning the chicken coop, etc. The farm is open 7 days a week from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm. Important - do not enter the kennels or the fields where there are dogs unless with staff. Only fully vaccinated people are allowed in any of the buildings.
Here are a couple of options:
1) New volunteers should come on Sunday for a tour of the grounds. No appointment is necessary. Come up the driveway and park in the Parking Pit located on the left. Enter the main gate and go to the purple Welcome Hut on the left. Please sign in; sign a volunteer release form (need to sign only once); get a name tag and walk down the driveway. Staff and volunteers are usually around and will direct you to the areas of the farm where help is needed.
2) Become a regular volunteer. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the days and hours you would like to come to SDP. You may still stop in to volunteer while waiting to hear back from us.
3} Dog Walking. To get our younger dogs used to walking on a leash and being around strangers, we invite volunteers to come on Sundays to leash walk dogs around the property. For more information, please email email@example.com.
