Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. On a daily basis, dedicated volunteers ensure that our horses and other animals have adequate food, water and a clean living environment.
If you would like to help save horses lives by devoting some time to their care, we would be so grateful. To attend our free volunteer Orientation at our rescue contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
ALL volunteers MUST attend a Volunteer Orientation.
Britten Farms has established guidelines and standards to provide for the safety and comfort of both volunteers and the horses in our care. These guidelines are set forth in the Volunteer Orientation and Volunteer Handbook and must be followed precisely.
The Orientation will answer most of your questions. However always feel free to ask any questions for clarification of a policy or procedure.
The New Volunteer Orientation is held from 9am to 11am. It takes place on our farm
There is no cost, it's free. Donations to the non profit rescue, however, are always welcome.
No experience required. Our volunteers range from never working with a horse before to experienced trainers.
You will learn about the rescue, the animals, and how you can help. Volunteers take a tour, meet the animals. During the tour, volunteers will learn about the help needed including feeding animals, cleaning stalls and barnyard areas, filling water buckets, grooming and caring for the animals.
All ages are welcome, including kids as long as children are supervised at all times. Children 16 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteers must wear closed toe shoes (no sandals, flip flops or steel toed boots) on the farm. Be prepared to get messy so wear clothes you don't mind getting wet or dirty.
Complete and print the Liability Waiver and bring it with you to the orientation. If you can't, don't worry - we will have blank copies for you. Note: No one is able to approach the animals without first submitting a completed waiver.
