Many Small but Influential Actions
Make Big and Meaningful Changes

Wanna join our team?

If you love animals or have a passion for gardening, and believe that all beings deserve to live with kindness and compassion, then Sale Ranch is for you! And we can’t wait to meet you!

Sale Ranch offers several volunteer opportunities, from onsite “poop scooping” and gardening duties to marketing and admin support, community event assistance, and more.

Volunteer Expectations

Love and Respect

Our volunteers should love and respect all animals; human or otherwise.

Physical Fitness

Work on a ranch and in the garden is physically strenuous. Our volunteers should be reasonably fit and able to lift up to 40lbs.

18 or older

All of our volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.


We ask that volunteers have access to their own transportation to ensure they fulfill their assigned shifts.


The animals and the garden depend on us, and thus we rely on our volunteers to commit to a 2-3 hour weekly shift for a minimum of three months.

We couldn’t do the lifesaving work without the service of our amazing volunteers. You do not need to have previous farm animal or gardening experience to volunteer at Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary, just a commitment to serve the animals for a minimum of 3 months. We have two volunteer shifts, 7 days a week:

    • Mornings: 8:00 am to 11:00 am
    • Evenings: 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm (varies depending on season/daylight hours)

The work is physically demanding but deeply rewarding. Much of the work involves raking and cleaning barns and corrals, washing water troughs, harvesting the garden, pulling weeds, and enjoying the ranch’s magic.

If you are:

  • excited and motivated to work hard and get dusty, or
  • interested in working our community events, or
  • helping behind the scenes
