Our volunteer program is CLOSED temporarily until further notice due to the current events with public health. Thank you for understanding and please sign up to receive our emails for updates about reopening.

Joining #TEAMWOODSTOCK and volunteering with us means helping us fulfill our mission by doing those behind-the-scenes jobs that make it all possible to save so many animals. It also means hard, rewarding work side by side with our 380 rescued animal residents. Make new friends, support the Sanctuary, see the animals, and get a workout – not a bad way to spend the day!
