Daily Volunteers Opportunities - Flexible Days and Times to suit your schedule

While the Sanctuary is open to the public on Thursdays and Sundays, volunteers are needed every day of the week to groom, exercise and socialize the animals.  Handy?  Farms are a lot of work.  If you have know your way around a hammer or just like to tidy up, your time is invaluable to us in helping to provide a safe and pleasant environment for our animals and many guests.  

Quite simply, the sanctuary could not exist without volunteers.  If you like to learn more about how you can be a part of our team, please contact Sheila at 905-352-2772. 

Whether one day a week or a few hours a month, you will enjoy the experience of getting to know and love the donkeys (as they will you) and have the pleasure of working with a great team.  And should the day come when your arrival prompts Simon to make happy, squeaking noises, it will no doubt become your favourite place on earth.
