Volunteer at the Sanctuary
We welcome volunteers, especially those with skills in animal care, construction, gardening or fundraising. In particular we are looking for volunteers who can stay for at least a month. We do have lots of interest and limited accommodation space, so we can't guarantee you a place, but we'd love to hear from you anyway!
Please contact us if you would like to volunteer.
During the summer months we try to have regular working bees at the sanctuary. This is a great opportunity to meet all the animals at that live at the Black Sheep and find out a bit about why they are here. It is usually a fun day that includes some hands-on practical work, a tour of the sanctuary and a delicious vegan lunch.
Join our mailing list to be kept informed on our upcoming working bee dates.
Volunteer at Opportunity for Animals, our Charity Shop
The Animal Protection Society runs charity shops in Newtown and Miramar, Wellington, and also in Ōtaki, that sell quality secondhand clothing and household goods to fundraise for animal charities and the sanctuary.
If you are interested in volunteering at the op-shop please phone our shop manager Kirsty on 04-389-3891 or leave a message and she will return your call. You can also fill out our online form and we'll be in touch!
