Interested in learning how to care for farm animals? Or just want to hug a sheep for a bit (before mucking out a chicken coop)? Sunny Day Farms Animal Sanctuary outside San Antonio is hosting a volunteer orientation Saturday, February 23, from 10 AM to 2 PM.
I’ve written about Sunny Day a million times, but I can’t say enough how much they do for farm animals and our community. Sunny Day provides homes to animals that have been abused, abandoned, neglected, or just treated like any other animal at a factory farm (i.e., terribly). But moreover Sunny Day teaches Central Texas about the lives of these animals and what we can do to improve them. Volunteers are vital to keep the animal sanctuary up and running.
Every week volunteers come to the farm, taking a few hours out of their busy lives to answer that persistent and urgent question by giving their time to SDF. These volunteers truly are the center of the farm. Some are here to gain experience in animal care to help them in future endeavors. Some are here simply because they love animals and will do anything to be around them. Others come because they love SDF and want to give back in a special, meaningful way. Whatever the reason, their tireless commitment to the farm and the animals is invaluable. We are forever grateful to be included in their answer to “life’s most persistent and urgent question.” Would YOU like to become a volunteer at the farm and learn to care for farmed animals? We are having an impromptu Volunteer Workshop next Saturday, February 23, from 10am-2pm. We know that this is completely last minute; however, we will be planning another workshop in the spring. These workshops are designed to educate those with or without prior farm experience to care for farmed animals at SDF. Please bring a sack lunch. Drinks will be provided.
