TREES Volunteer Orientation

Would you like to help maintain a high standard of customized care for the elder equine at Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary in Spotsylvania, VA? TREES' residents, many victims of neglect and abandonment, need your help.

If you would like to learn more about how you can help, we invite you to attend a Volunteer Orientation at the Sanctuary on Saturday, July 10, 2010 at 10AM.

We'll tell you what the sanctuary does, outline short- and long-term goals, and explain how volunteers play roles in day-to-day chores, the horses' overall well-being, and future program development.

The morning will end with a brief tour of the farm and introductions to current residents.

If you plan to attend, please email or call 540-972-0936 to let us know how many people to expect and for directions.

Current volunteers are encouraged to attend and meet the people you may be working with in the future.
