Volunteers Go Vegan – Protecting Farmed Animals in Northern California

Pays d’action: Etats-Unis, Amérique du Nord
Type d’activité: Missions avec animaux et vétérinaires, Ecovolontariat
As part of this voluntary project you join the experienced team of a non-profit sanctuary to dedicate yourself to the protection of farmed animals. The special thing about volunteering in this project: To enhance a more conscious, sustainable and animal friendly lifestyle you will live entirely vegan during your time at the sanctuary.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Each day, countless animals are being exploited in the food industry for the production of meat, milk, eggs and other animal-derived products. The animal sanctuary in Northern California, in which you’ll be working and living as part of this volunteer project, is dedicated to ending the exploitation of farmed animals. All staff members stand up for ending the exploitation of farmed animals. They provide sanctuary to more than 250 cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep and rabbits. As a volunteer, you join the animals and the team for several weeks to become intimately familiar with the operations of a non-profit sanctuary and to learn the behaviour of formerly farmed animals in a sanctuary setting: You assist with daily feeds, clean animal quarters and help maintain sanctuary grounds. You also observe weekly animal health checks as needed and help socialise animals.
Since factory farming is a synonym for neglect and cruelty, all sanctuary staff members promote vegan lifestyle. Please do not bring any animal-based foods to the sanctuary and only shop vegan products at the supermarket while being part of the project. We understand you may require medications that have been tested on animals or contain animal ingredients – these are permitted.

Volunteers live on the animal shelter site in a shared-accommodation guest house. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, a living area with a TV and DVD player, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house has central heat and air. It also has access to the internet. If available to a volunteer’s smartphone, one can enable making phone calls via WiFi. Cell phone service is limited but available. There is a land-line but not for making long-distance phone calls.
In the fully equipped kitchen of the guest house they can prepare meals themselves. Volunteers will need to provide their own food items.
