weekend volunteers
Weekend volunteers are needed at the Sanctuary. During the week SARA has a paid staff to perform the work functions. However, on the weekends we have limited staff and need volunteers! You can help feed, clean enclosures, groom, bath and socialize the animals.

If you plan to volunteer, please try to arrive no later than 11:00 am (9:00 am is best). We like to wrap things up about 3:00 pm. The animals are on a routine (feeding, naptime, playtime, quiet time, etc.) Please bring your own water and soft drinks, a sack lunch is also a good idea.

Sign up with Tracy by email. Note: We welcome large groups or individuals!

You may fill out our volunteer application, and either email or bring this with you to the Sanctuary. If you forget, you can fill out one at the Sanctuary when you arrive.

pet socialization
Socialization sessions are welcome anytime. SARA routinely targets dogs and cats for adoption. Volunteers that help socalize these pets and practice basic behavior skills can significantly improve the chances of placing them in permanent, loving homes. We encourage you to choose a dog or cat to work with. It's great fun and can be very rewarding when your "student" leaves SARA with a grateful new family!

trade skills needed
We are always seeking skilled carpenters, electricians, repairmen, painters and others with trade skills to keep SARA running and assist with new infrastructure.

bath days
"Anyone who doesn't know what soap tastes like, never washed a dog!"

We routinely need to clean over 500 dogs! We can show you how to properly bathe a dog, as well as provide a hands-on activity with the dogs. Bring some dry clothes. You will get wet!

spring cleaning
Several times a year, particularly after a harsh winter, we need to spruce up the sanctuary - painting the catteries, repairing fences and cleaning. This is a great activity for groups - boy scouts, church groups, or a circle of friends!

summer fun
Summer is often the hardest time to find volunteers, but it can actually be the most rewarding. We need people to routinely mow the lawns, fill the kiddy pools and wash and groom the animals. So remember SARA in the summer!
