Animal Caregiver

Join the team! Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is looking to hire a full-time, long term, committed animal caregiver. Duties include care and feeding of animals, administering treatments and medications, barn cleaning, and working with volunteers.

The job is physically demanding and will put you outdoors in all sorts of weather. You’ll be swinging 50 pound straw bales and bags of feed. Reliability and attention to detail is essential — the well-being of 300+ lives will depend upon you!
