Empowering Success through Volunteerism
An interview with Jack French about his time volunteering with Abilities at the Barnyard Sanctuary, a local pet farm animal rescue and adoption charity dedicated to finding a new home for displaced farm pets that have become homeless due to the financial, social, economical or physical well being of their current caregivers.
Q: What is the Barnyard Sanctuary?
Jack: The Barnyard Sanctuary is an animal rescue organization.
Q: What do you to there?
Jack: I volunteer my time to take care of the animal and the farm. I am learning how to take care of the animals, pick up hay, water the animals, clean the pens, feed the cats and collect the eggs.
Q: What kind of animals do they take care of there?
Jack: They take care of rabbits, sheep, pigs, duck, dog, cat, chickens, cows, horses, and ostrich and even a peacock. Plus many more.
Q: Would you recommend volunteering at the Barnyard Sanctuary to others, and why?
Jack: Yes, I would recommend volunteering to take care of the animals. I feel proud of myself and me and my wife are going to help every Saturday.
