New Internship Program

We are excited to launch our new Internship Program. We now have on-site housing for people willing to make a 3 month commitment. Spend the summer doing what you love! Contact Tracy@sarasanctuary.org for more information.

Visiting the Sanctuary

Coming out and interacting with the animals is a wonderful experience for the whole family. We encourage visitors to bring apples, lettuce, and carrots for the animals. We’re always happy to have visitors come out to the sanctuary!

Out of respect for our animals and our mission, we ask that our guests (volunteers, visitors, staff) refrain from bringing meat or any other animal products when visiting the sanctuary, and instead bring only vegan food options.  You can order a delicious vegan lunch prepared by SARA for a $10 donation by contacting Tracy@sarasanctuary.org.  Please give us two day’s notice and list any food allergies or restrictions.  We — and the animals — thank you for your compassion and understanding!

Volunteering

As with most non-profit organizations, SARA relies on the help of caring volunteers. Here are some of our volunteer opportunities.

On-site Volunteers
There is a mountain of work to be completed each day just to meet the basic needs of our 700+ animals. We welcome your interest and assistance with the following tasks.

  • Feeding: Every day we feed over 700 pounds of dry kibble to the dogs, over 1200 pounds of livestock feed to the pigs and other animals.
  • Cleaning: Cattery, infirmary, hen house, farm yard. As you can imagine, cleaning up after so many animals is vital to keeping the grounds clean and providing a healthy environment for our animal residents.
  • Animal Enrichment: Making “toys & treats” for animals.
  • Animal Socialization: Petting dogs, cats, goats.

Event Volunteers
We need volunteers to help at fundraisers and off-site events in Austin and San Antonio. Please contact volunteers@sarasanctuary.org for more information.
