Please note that our sanctuary is not open to the public for drop-in visits. Our animal care duties keep our volunteers busy, so the sanctuary is open to the public only during planned events and volunteer work parties.
The best way to visit the sanctuary and meet the animals is to attend a work party. We host volunteer work parties year-round, every other Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. We also schedule group tours for youth groups and interested organizations. Please email us if you’d like to schedule a tour for your organization. There is a suggested $5 per person donation for these organized events.
When you attend our volunteer work parties, you can take a stroll about the sanctuary, get to know the animals, and lend a helping hand. Volunteering at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary is a fun and meaningful way to spend a few hours!
Chores may include:
As an all-volunteer non-profit with no paid staff, an abundance of “heart” work goes in to running a farm sanctuary and caring for our beloved family.
We welcome children of all ages under adult supervision.
We ask for signed waivers from all volunteers. Waivers are available for you to sign during check-in at work parties, or you can fill one out at home and bring it with you. Wildwood Farm Sanctuary Waiver
Please see the calendar below and find a date that best works for you. You may show up to any scheduled volunteer date with no prior notice.
*Note about Pets*: We love ALL animals here, but please leave your dogs and other furry friends at home when you visit the sanctuary. Dogs can frighten our residents, and since this is their home we want them to feel as secure as possible!
