Volunteers are the heart of the everyday activities here.


Work can include cleaning and filling water containers, raking and mucking stalls and paddocks, spending one-on-one enrichment time socializing and grooming specific animals, and other animal care needs of the day. At certain times of the day you can assist the staff with some feeding tasks, especially the pigs or the birds. We train you and focus on the safety of both our animals and the volunteers. Most volunteers report that they get more from volunteering than they give: a true sense of connection.

Want to help in other ways? Volunteers can get involved with activities outside the realm of direct animal care. Maybe you are a great videographer or photographer? You rock at great social media posts? Maybe you would like to help with our fundraising? You could offer workshops on topics related to our mission, or help with the humane education program. We love to have our volunteers be the voice of Unity Farm Sanctuary as ambassadors speaking with the visitors during our special onsite events.

The majority of any onsite animal-care activities are mostly labor intensive, so please notify us in advance if you are unable to perform certain tasks. We can work with you to craft a volunteering experience that will respect your needs and the requirements of our animal rescues. Volunteers here are ages 10-82!

Our Volunteer Handbook and Waiver are below to download, and you can email us to get the information on our next Volunteer Orientation!



We always appreciate the generosity of people like you, with every contribution going towards making Unity Farm Sanctuary an even better forever home for farm animals than it already is. Every dollar goes directly into animal food, veterinary care, and animal housing.


Maybe you have another idea how we can work together to enhance our educational mission and community service. For example, we offer opportunities to numerous local organizations for the disadvantaged, disabled, and elderly. Please contact us with your special requests.


We sometimes offer opportunities for local schools and colleges to include Unity Farm Sanctuary experiences in their coursework offerings. Interns would work closely with staff to participate in hands-on daily events, and developing relationships with the animals that far exceeds any other experience we offer.  At this time, we do not have any internship positions available 


Unity Farm Sanctuary is not currently seeking an Animal Caregiver team member at this time

Unlike the tasks in volunteering, This is a more physically intense job than volunteering. Caregivers are out in all weather year-round, with lots of direct animal welfare tasks, including moving heavy supplies, using vehicles, feeding and health care.

Kindness and compassion for the animals is important, and a belief in our rescue mission is key!

Our Animal Caregivers follows our mission and are plant-based while here onsite at the Sanctuary.

Email with any questions or click on the button below to apply.

Animal Caregivers must have a valid driver's licence, be a resident of MA/RI, and previous experience is great (you must be 16 and up).
