Volunteer with Us!
VEWS is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Our volunteers are vital to fulfilling our Mission, and we are always looking for dedicated and compassionate horse lovers to help care for our rescue horses!
Typical volunteer opportunities include:
Help with hands-on horse care. There are daily morning and evening shifts that entail cleaning stalls, feeding, and grooming the horses. Training is provided, and we follow the natural horsemanship principles.
Help organize and work fundraising events like formal fundraising events, information/merchandise booths, sell raffle or event tickets, concessions, sales and other special events.
Help with website and social media marketing and promotion efforts.
Volunteers are needed to plan and execute various volunteer appreciation events
Volunteers are needed periodically to foster long-term VEWS horses on their private property to make stall space for new rescues
Many horses that come to us will not have received proper training in their former life. It is the intention of VEWS to provide proper ground and under saddle training, where necessary, to ensure the horse has the best chance of being adopted and finding their forever home.
VEWS needs volunteers for many things that come up periodically or are a one-time occurrence.
If you have a passion for horses, a desire to learn and would like to join our team of devoted volunteers, please submit a volunteer application!
Please note that due to the nature of working with and rehabilitating abused horses, volunteers under the age of 14 must have a parent sign their liability release form and be accompanied by an adult each shift. Volunteers between the ages of 14 - 17 must have a parent sign their liability release form but do not need to be accompanied by an adult when they volunteer.
