We are looking for regular volunteers, if once a week or once a month, your help will have a direct impact on allowing us to save more lives. As of December 2020, I will be back being a one person show as my brother and sister-in-law will no longer be living here and helping tremendously. There are just so many hours in the day to care for the animals, keep the upkeep on the farm, handle social media, run a nonprofit, and hold a job to pay for the farm and my personal bills. 

So having regular volunteers will be an absolute key to being able to continue to save more lives. 

If you are interested in helping, please fill out the below two forms and email them to me. 

Thank you so much for wanting to help the Little Buckets gang!

What you will do

I will be honest in that a lot of jobs for volunteers involve poop and hay. It is a daily job and one that gives my back a break and allows me to work on other chores around the farm if a volunteer does it for a day. In addition, there will be miscellaneous jobs like cleaning buckets, sweeping the barn, and filling water but you will also get to spend time with the animals often while these jobs are done. Those with horse experience will be able to help with grooming the horses and giving baths in the summer.
