Below you will find information about each area, age limits, and volunteer shift times.
Barnyard (age 15+) 8 AM – 10 AM: A fun-filled morning with the horses, pigs, sheep, cows, and alpacas. Volunteers will
have the opportunity to help with feeding, cleaning stalls and pastures, socializing and grooming the animals.
Dogs (age 10+) 9 AM – 11:30 AM; 2 PM – 4 PM: Pal around with the dogs at one of our two dog yurts. Volunteers may
be asked to help clean, scoop poop, walk and socialize with the dogs. Group walks, training time, shy dog classes and
other fun activities are time and/or weather dependent but there is always something to do! We may even have an outing
or event planned such as a walk through Guernsey to the river or a hike at the Oregon Trail Ruts.
Kitty Bunkhouse (age 8+) 9 AM – 11:30 AM: Enjoy a tranquil experience with the cats. Volunteers can help sweep, wipe
surfaces, and scoop litter boxes, but there is always plenty of time to cuddle, train, and play with the cats. The kitties also
love story time, so volunteers are encouraged to bring reading material of their choice, sit, and read.
Maintenance Monday- Friday 9 AM – 12 PM; 1 PM – 4 PM: Take a break from the animals and help our behind the
scenes crew with one of our many projects. From building decks, maintaining facilities and painting walls to mowing
grass and more. Have a special skill you would like to share? Let us know - there may be a special project waiting for you!
Wyoming can be unpredictable so make sure to pack layers, a hat, sunscreen, extra socks, a water bottle and a coat or
windbreaker of some sort.
If you plan on doing barn time, we recommend ridged-toe boots such as cowboy boots or hiking
boots. Tennis shoes are recommended for dog walks and sandals or open-toed shoes are not allowed during
any volunteer activities.
Guests with bee allergies should plan accordingly as we do have a wide variety of stinging insects.
