covid19 UPDATE

Current volunteers are welcome back to the sanctuary as of Tuesday, June 2nd, beginning at 8:30 am, as scheduled. If possible, please bring your own work gloves. We can not accept new volunteers at this time. If you are wanting and able to help please donate online, leave donations on the deck of our thrift store, and tell others about us!

We Need Volunteers!

We need your help. Volunteers are needed to assist us with our various programs. We specifically need volunteers to work in the AHA Thrift Store, on the Farm, and with special events.

Send us your name and address by mail or e-mail, indicate your interests or special skills, and if you have had any experience volunteering. In addition, provide us with your phone number and the best time to reach you. Our volunteer coordinator will be
in touch with you as soon as possible.


How You Can Help

If you have two hours to spare 9:00 am to 11:00 am Tuesday through Saturday and you don’t mind farm work, we need you.

Volunteer at our on-site Thrift Store Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm.

We often need temporary foster homes for farm animals as well as smaller animals that come under our care: e.g. Ducks, Chickens, Bunnies, Cats, Dogs.



Become a vegan!

Eating a plant-based diet not only saves many animal lives but is good for your health and for the environment.
