We are always in need of volunteers to help with the day-to-day running of the sanctuary! 

There’s a wide range of activities available, such as:

  • Drivers to help get donations to the sanctuary
  • Help with building, photography and fundraising
  • Weekly and monthly volunteers to help with chores, feedings, and cleaning up after the animals. Regular volunteer days are on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Frequently asked questions

What tasks do volunteers do?
Becoming a volunteer means becoming a valuable part of what we do at Carroll’s Animal Sanctuary and Rescue. Volunteers help with refilling bedding, food, and water bowls, as well as cleaning stalls and much more.

We’re also always looking for volunteers to help with transporting donations, and picking up vegetables and rescued animals. 

Where is the sanctuary located?
We’re located just outside Hanover, Ontario.
What else can I do?
You can also donate useful items such as blankets, towels, bedding, dog beds, bowls, feeders, etc.

Or, you can either purchase items from our Amazon Wish List or make a monetary donation to help pay for food, vet care, and other sanctuary expenses.

Why only regular volunteers?
We’re currently looking only for regular volunteers who can commit to helping out on either a weekly or monthly basis, on either Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. This is because meeting new people is hard on some of their animals as this is their home. We try to minimize as much stress on our animals as possible, and one way we do this is by limiting visitors.
