Ever since MFS was founded, volunteers have been an indispensable part of our organization. Our dedicated volunteers make an impact on a daily basis, from cleaning barns and cutting up fruits and veggies for the animals to helping organize events and raise money behind the scenes. Read more about our volunteer opportunities below.

Become a Barn Volunteer

MFS needs volunteers seven days a week for barn cleaning duties. We are currently seeking volunteers who can make a commitment to be at the sanctuary on the same day every week from 12-3pm. We have volunteer shifts open all days, including Saturday and Sunday.

All barn volunteers must be 18 or older. Please note that for safety and liability issues, volunteers are not permitted to bring young children with them while they are volunteering.

If you are interested in becoming a barn volunteer, please fill out and return our volunteer application to or the address listed on the application. We hope to see you soon!
