Volunteers always Needed and Welcomed!!
DCHR could not be what it is today without our volunteers and friends …Thank you from all the animals whose lives were saved thanks to your dedication!!!
DCHR welcomes everybody to help in our mission. We have volunteer opportunities for everyone!
Below is a list of Volunteer opportunities we currently have – if you are interested in helping out and becoming one of our volunteers, please download our application form (Adult or Junior) and review our DCHR Volunteer Rules, or you can contact us and we can get you the forms. Once you submit the forms back to us we will contact you to arrange a time for you to come and meet the team!
We need lesson assistants for our trainers during Saturdays ( anytime between 9-6) and Sundays (1-6) – these volunteers need to be at lease 12 years old and with some experience (eg. be able to go get a horse unassisted, help with grooming and tacking and help with supervising students, also to be able to give pony rides and barn tours).
Even if you cant stay all day a few hours would be greatly appreciated! We have a junior trainer program and lesson assistants do have an opportunity to become a trainer here when they are experienced enough and at least 16 years old.
All volunteers are able to work with the rescue horses too - grooming, bathing caring for them and assisting with vet and farrier visits too providing they can do this unsupervised. (we will of course show you how initially)
OCCASIONAL VOLUNTEER WORK
Finally, we keep a volunteer bank list for events you can be added to such as birthday parties, group field trips, fund raisers and also for events we go to in the community throughout the year to raise funds. these volunteers help with many things we need such as running games, pony rides, helping children get on /off horses, supervise barn areas, help with crafts and games, go to community events and tell the public about our cause and give info out etc… its a fun way to socialize and make new friends!
We also have opportunities for administrative work such as filing, grant writing, coordinating, marketing, and always welcome any ideas you may have to help us raise funds for our cause – without people like you we could not continue with our quest to help these wonderful Equines in need!
So if you think you or a member of your family would like to spare a few hours a week helping us please contact us with what you would like to do to help and also complete the attached form and get it back to us. we look forward to hearing from you and having you as part of our Dreamcatcher Family!
Thank you for reading and I hope you will consider donating some of your time to help us with our quest to continue our care and rehabilitation of these wonderful Equines in need!
