Volunteer Application

 

The Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc  is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that rescues horses bound for slaughter for human consumption and also assists in cases of equine abuse, neglect and abandonment.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc.

The time and attention that our volunteers spend at the rescue is vitally important to the horses well-being at the rescue. Spending time grooming, nuzzling, speaking to, feeding treats to and cleaning of the horses stalls, scrubbing water buckets, and generally interacting with the horses all help to maintain a healthy, clean environment for the horses to live in and an environment in which they become accustomed to human interaction.

This in turn helps the horses find good homes.

Once approved as a volunteer you will need to attend our Volunteer Orientation.

This is a basic training session on safe horse handling procedures in the rescue environment, which you will need to complete before you begin your volunteer hours.

 Volunteer training is held once a month.

 

 If you would like to know the next orientation date and time

before hand please call the rescue at the number above, or visit our website at

www.saveahorsenow.org

 

Volunteers work under the guidance of the senior volunteer member on duty. A member of the rescue will always be available to assist you should a question or concern arise.
