A nonprofit sanctuary for rescued farm animals needs a hard working, animal loving, responsible and dedicated person to provide the absolute best care for the animals at the sanctuary. This is HARD WORK, outdoors in all weather and candidates must be able to lift 50lb bags of feed and 65+lb bales of hay without difficulty. This is a tough, physical job but its very rewarding and enjoyable if you love animals. Must be familiar with basic animal health care, worming schedules, able to groom ponies (which includes keeping hooves clean), and knowledge of basic medications.

Position will include keeping the sanctuary grounds, stalls and buildings clean, neat and organized. Must be able to catch and lift animals in excess of 100lbs with help as well as notice when an animal is sick, injured or not acting right.

Ideal candidate will be in excellent physical shape, have a positive attitude, be detail oriented, willing to learn and grow and able to accept responsibility. Must be able to stay focused, organized and accomplish tasks as directed in an acceptable amount of time (productive). Dependable transportation required. Prefer people who live within 20 miles of the sanctuary. Please do not apply from out of state or the USA.

References and drug testing required. Rooterville is a drug and smoke free environment and no meat/dairy is allowed on the property. If you think of farm animals as meat on the hoof, this is not the place for you.

Please respond with a paragraph on your skills, attitude and abilities and what you would bring to the organization along with a resume’ and salary requirements. Position will be full time with management potential for exceptional person. If you do not provide the information requested, you will not receive a response.

Thank you for looking!
