If you can't adopt or foster, please consider volunteering your time to the animals in our care. We need volunteers to help at events, clean the barn, socialize our animals and even ride or groom our horses. Riding and horsemanship lessons are available if you don't have previous horse experience. Fill out our volunteer application today and e-mail it to us!

Why not


We know you've always wanted a horse, dog, cat, bunny, or other awesome animal. And now's the time! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member, as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Owning or fostering an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do. Check out our Adoptables page...

Our volunteers work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our animals here at Southern Hope Animal Rescue & Education. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you and your donations of time and money. So, if you ever feel like you want to be a part of our farm family and help some of the best animals around, click the link below!
