Are you looking to volunteer for an organization that needs and appreciates your time, labor and skills?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Volunteering with ERR is fun and rewarding. We have a great team of core volunteers who help keep this organization running to make a real difference in the lives of so many equines.

We always need volunteers for tasks like helping to raise awareness, grooming horses, grounds maintenance and many others.

When volunteering with ERR you will:

  • work alongside our core team of volunteers
  • have the opportunity to learn new skills and improve upon skills you already have
  • see the impact that you are having on each animal helped
  • build friendships with other awesome volunteers
  • hang out with some of the coolest equines in the world

How do I get started?

We use Point App to manage our volunteer program. Click here to sign up for Point then search for and join Equine Rescue Resource on Point. We periodically post volunteer events in Point, which you can sign up to attend. Please also fill out our volunteer survey here.

What if I can’t be there in person?

There are plenty of ways you can still help out, from hosting fundraisers to helping us build awareness and helping us to find good homes for adoptable horses. Keep an eye out for virtual volunteering opportunities in Point.

Will I get dirty?

There are many tasks available to volunteers – from helping with paperwork to helping to shovel manure and everything in between. Not all of the tasks are dirty work, but, please be sure to check the event description and attend events that are within your comfort level.

Is there anything I should bring or wear?

Please check the event for any guidelines on specific attire. In general, it’s a good idea to wear closed toe shoes and weather appropriate clothes.

What if I don’t have any horse experience?

That’s OK. We try work with people where they are in terms of skills/experience.

I have a disability or physical limitation. Can I still volunteer?

Absolutely! Please communicate that when you fill out your volunteer survey. We will work with you to find a way that you can safely volunteer.

Is there a minimum age for volunteering?

We love to have children volunteer. It builds character and we hope to instill and reinforce a love of horses in the next generation. All volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
