Volunteer Requirements

Second Chances Volunteer Program
is open to everyone, young and not so young, experienced and not so experienced.

If you have any questions about these requirements please contact us.

  1. Application
  2. EVERY volunteer must complete the volunteer application, whether one or ninety years old.
    Volunteers under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

  3. Requested Commitment
  4. In the interests of sustainability and continuity, we ask our volunteers to make an average commitment of two volunteer shifts per month, for one year (we welcome more shifts!). The herd benefits knowing our volunteers and the only way to build that relationship is frequent visits. We work with your schedule to find the right fit for your volunteer service. For your convenience, we use an online scheduling service that you can access 24 hours a day. Please sign up for a Volunteer Orientation first. Our online schedule is available 24/7.

  5. Credentialing
  6. If you are volunteering your time in a professional capacity please provide a copy of your credentials and the contact information for the verifying organization. This step is a must prior to any volunteer hours being given.

  7. Liability Insurance
  8. Professionals acting in any capacity must provide their own liability insurance and provide proof prior to your first shift. All other volunteers are covered by Second Chances Equine Rescue's liability policy.
