Volunteer Opportunities

Join our cause and join the fun!

On Golden Rescue is an internationally accredited 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to the rescue, rehabilitation and sanctuary of at-risk horses and other large animals such as goats. We are looking for Volunteers to join our cause and join in the fun! Shifts are approximately 3 hours and run from 8:00 am to 11:00am 7 days/week. You can volunteer for one or multiple days per week.

Volunteer projects include mucking stalls, watering horses, grooming, exercising and keeping the sanctuary grounds tidy. We are looking for individuals with horse experience, but it is not required. Must be 18 years of age or older and be able to lift 50 lbs. for short periods of time.

We also need volunteers to help with fundraising, marketing, grant research, etc. These non-physical jobs can be done on your own time and in lieu of being at the sanctuary.

OGR offers permanent residence and care to otherwise unwanted, abused, or neglected horses, and provides them with a safe haven where they will never again experience the situations that led them to OGR in the first place. These animals are generally older and, in some cases, traumatized and this is why we retain them as permanent sanctuary residents. Our motto is “No More Bad Days.”
