Volunteers are an integral part of the Unbridled Sanctuary team, and vital to our success. Any action you contribute will help to improve the lives of horses and help us to carry out our mission of protecting horses from cruelty, exploitation, and slaughter. We offer a variety of volunteer positions including farm chores, horse care, office tasks, community outreach, event assistance, program management, and visitor tours, giving volunteers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of rescued horses. Volunteers provide hundreds of hours of service each year helping to rescue and rehabilitate horses, educating the community about equine abuse and neglect, maintaining safe stalls, fencing, and grounds, and raising funds to provide for future horses in need. Individuals with an interest in volunteering professional skills such as communications, public relations, landscaping, etc., are much needed and encouraged to apply.

Volunteer service at Unbridled may be used to satisfy volunteer hours to fulfill Student Service Learning and Honor Society requirements for high school graduation, and experience for college credits. We host Community Service Days for businesses, national children’s groups, and schools. We also offer corporate work parties and are available for private group work parties.
