Adult Volunteering Opportunities
We operate through the participation of volunteers and are always looking for good and dedicated people. It doesn't take much of your time, and provides so much in return.
Help with feeding, cleaning, and hands-on enrichment.
Partial Day: Those who can commit to a four-hour shift once a week (for a minimum of one year) can get involved with feeding, cleaning, and hands-on enrichment. Morning and afternoon/evening shifts available.
Our partial day shift run every day but for Wednesdays and openings do vary so let us know your availability and we can tell you if we have an opening.
Full Day: Same as above with the ability to learn additional skills.
Lend a hand growing food for our residents and making the sanctuary shine!
Help us keep the pond gardens, wildlife berry garden and other areas in top shape for our animals and for our tours. And if you don't have a green thumb, but want one, this is the place to learn.
We actually grow some of the food needed to teach the wildlife what to find when they leave, and we grow greens for happy farm animals. Growing saves us money but we can't do it without you.
Handyperson or Painter
Put your skills to use to help maintain our buildings and pasture fencing.
There is so much more to do in addition to caring for the animals. If you've got some carpentry skills, and can spend just a few hours each week, we would love to have you join us to help fix everything that breaks or wears out.
And if you can paint, the pasture fences, the barn and all the animal buildings take a beating each year and we would be grateful to anyone who can wield a paintbrush.
Help us share our important cause and spread the word about our sanctuary.
We want to share our important cause with every age and touch as many as we can. Your talent can help us spread the word.
We continue to build our following organically with both uplifting posts and important information. Our recent media volunteer really helped us grow. Before she moved, she made a detailed list of what she handled, accessed below. If you've got what it takes to be a part of this incredible cause, get in touch!
Keep us organized by helping with administrative duties.
If you're organized and detail-oriented, know how to use a computer, keep databases updated, run errands, reply to emails, and more, we want you to help us out once-a-week with minor administrative duties and communications.
Some work to be done on-site and some work may be done remotely. Must have laptop for remote work.
Help us raise funds to keep our animals happy and healthy.
Our incredible growth comes from the constant demand on us. To meet it, we need to raise more and more funds each year in order to continue our mission. If you can throw a party (or more!), you can help us fund-raise...on your own schedule.
Looking for the right people with experience and skills in:
· Event coordination and leadership
· Program development and management
· Sponsorship and donation attainment
· Donor and sponsor prospecting and recruitment
· Relationship building and management
· Community outreach and partnerships
Marketing and/or Appearance Organizer
We're worth hearing about, and we'd love someone who can help us bring attention to our important mission through television, newspaper and innovative advertising and outreach. The right marketing volunteer will also work and coordinate with our social media manager when needed.
We also get asked to attend events and other fun experiences that can benefit West Place, and we could use your help to organize our attendance at these opportunities.
Help us spread our mission.
