Volunteers are the life blood of the Sanctuary. Some of our volunteers work here in Montana and some as far away as the east and west coasts, performing a variety of tasks ranging from horse care to bookkeeping.
Volunteer Joanna Dove, above, of Helena works with Sanctuary resident, Coral, with her rehabilitation. Dove also volunteers in bookkeeping, publicity, outreach and sanctuary maintenance.
We need volunteers for all tasks, but especially grant writers and people who can help out with fundraising and publicity. Many of our volunteers work in a variety of capacities.
Potential volunteers often ask if there is a time commitment. The answer is no. If you only have an hour or two a month or if you have 8 hours a week available, please let us know you are interested and we will put you to work.
The only time commitment we require is for volunteers who will be working directly with horses.
These volunteers are required to take horse safety training and we require eight hours of non-horse work before taking the safety training which is offered eight times a year.
Whatever your talents, location and time availability, we can find just the right project for you.
