Chenoa Action Alliance

Chenoa Action Alliance

Are you looking for the opportunity to get your hands dirty, give back and get involved at an animal sanctuary? We’re currently accepting applications for our newly-founded volunteer committee, the Chenoa Action Alliance.

This has been an interesting year, to say the least. In addition to impacting fundraising, COVID-19 has affected our daily operations and staffing. In previous years we’ve relied primarily on youth volunteer groups to help with horticulture and farm-hand projects, with event and workshop attendees filling in gaps. But with university closures and the recent flood damage further complicating things, the last few (bumpy) months have made it clear that we’re in need of some new, reliable volunteers.

Chenoa Action Alliance
