“Austin Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) animal rescue farm and organization. Our mission is to rescue and provide sanctuary to farm animals and to inspire change in how society views and treats these beautiful creatures. We believe that progress requires more than the actions of a few, it requires a community.
We strive to build relationships between people and farm animals. Through this we hope to encourage mindfulness and shift the way society perceives and values farm animals. We inform people of the horror that is the modern day farm industry and educate on the personal health and environmental benefits of a plant-based/vegan lifestyle.https://austinfarmsanctuary.org/
AFS organizes at least one volunteer day per month. On the day, volunteers can:
- Tour the property.
- Get trained on the basic needs of AFS’s residents.
- Learn about other volunteer opportunities and safety tips for working with the animals.
After this first visit, volunteers will have more freedom to help at other times during the week.
To sign up for a volunteer day, check out AFS’s Volunteer Schedule.
There are no requirements listed on the AFS website.
