Volunteering at Circle F

Volunteers, all horse lovers, are at the heart of the program. You will find great satisfaction in caring for the horses and you will enjoy the comradeship of working with your team.

Circle F Horse Rescue is looking for a few good hearts to lend support to our growing volunteer teams! We have opportunities in our daily schedules for those who would like to get hands on with our horses, regardless of previous experience! We offer a comprehensive orientation process for those wishing to gain understanding in handling, health matters, and conditioning and we also welcome horse experienced folk to join our herd too! Circle F is presently expanding our opportunities for those with administrative skills, experience in fund development, event planning & publicity. If you would like to join us in helping horses, please be in touch for more information: Kevan Garecki ~ phone; 778-858-7301 ~ email; kg@portal.ca
