Do you have a passion for animals?
Have a passion for animals and a bit of spare time? Prince George Animal Rescue would love to have you out! First you need to start with an orientation. Orientations take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. We usually have them on alternating Sundays. Times and dates will be posted on the website. ***You must contact us to book your orientation and it is always a good idea to confirm the day before in case things change. Other orientation dates can be arranged if weekends don’t work for you.
Your orientation will consist of a tour through our facility. You will meet all of the animals and get a brief history on each one. We recommend coming in clothes and footwear that can get dirty. Dogs jump up, horses slobber, and the ground can be muddy. After your orientation you can call, text or email to set up another time that works for everyone for your next visit. Volunteer times/days vary.
The next volunteer orientation is:
Sunday, April 7th, 2019 at 1030 a.m
*Please double check the website the day prior to make sure the orientation is still happening.
What does volunteering entail?
Most volunteers will do some small chores around the farm like filling water troughs, cleaning the occasional stall or wiping down tack. For the most part, we have our volunteers brushing and walking horses and dogs. Long time volunteers with riding experience may be able to exercise suitable horses.
Although there is no age requirement for volunteers, we ask that anyone under the age of twelve have an adult accompany them. There will always be someone on site to answer questions or in case of an emergency, but many times we are busy working with the animals and doing chores. It is important that our volunteers are able to work somewhat independently. We will make sure you are comfortable with everything first!
We are most certainly beginner friendly and willing to teach the basics, but for those wishing to expand their horsemanship knowledge and/or take riding lessons, we do provide that service at an hourly rate of $35. For more information on lessons, click below.
