Volunteering at THE FARM

What Does Volunteering Consist Of?

Volunteers are involved in nearly every aspect of operations at BARN BUDDIES RESCUE @ THE FARM. They truly are the muscles of our team – not only because they help get all of the hard work done; but, also because they’ve got big hearts! (The most important muscle in the body, of course!)
