Get Involved - Volunteer

Volunteers are the foundation of Heaven Can Wait's mission! Without you our horses and donkeys don't get all of the attention they deserve. Without you, we cannot operate our programs and events.

We appreciate you and make every effort to not overwork you. Please make a time commitment that is comfortable and realistic for you: an hour a week, three hours twice a month, one day a month; one project every six months; whatever you are comfortable with, we are happy with!

There are many ways in which you can volunteer. Please read the volunteer team descriptions and pick your favorites.

Yes! You can join more than one team!

We would also like to add a few more Volunteer Coordinators to share the very important job of recruiting and organizing our volunteers.
