While many volunteers are dedicated to helping animals, often the reverse situation is also true; The animals end up helping the volunteer. Shelta4Life understands this and brings animals and people together. Volunteers work on a real farm, where they learn how to treat animals humanely and how the environment can be improved through organic and permaculture-inspired farming practices. The farm provides a safe, loving home to rescued farm animals and house pets while helping people in need get some fresh air and hands-on learning experiences through Care Farming.
With over 125 companion animals in its shelter system, Shelta4Life relies heavily on volunteers to keep things running smoothly. There are opportunities to walk the shelter dogs, take dogs jogging or hiking, participate in fundraising and adoption events and even foster an animal yourself.
