The Animals & Environment program works with several community groups and businesses to help improve the welfare of Charlottesville’s animals and environment.
What will volunteers do?
Each site has a different job for volunteers to do. Volunteers may work on a farm, caring for the farm animals and assisting with the farm’s upkeep, help tend a garden, restore local parks and trails, help with horseback riding, work at the SPCA, the possibilities are endless!
The shifts are approximately two hours, once a week, depending on the site. Transportation will be provided via carpool.
