 VOLUNTEER 

Want to help? We'd love to have you! If you are interested in becoming an animal foster parent or would like to volunteer at Promised Land Animal Sanctuary, please fill out the volunteer application form and email it to us.

Our PLAS family loves being groomed, petted or sometimes just kept company to help them adjust to different circumstances. Many skills can be helpful to our sanctuary. One of the best reasons to volunteer is that it is tied to something you are passionate about. A recent study showed that 95% of volunteers surveyed said they gained a "helper's high" volunteering, so it truly is a feel-good activity.
