About Farm Sanctuary

Farm Sanctuary is a farm animal protection organization that aims to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigation, legal and institutional reform, public awareness projects, youth education and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary has provided lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals.

The volunteer internship programs at Farm Sanctuary’s New York and California shelters provide individuals with opportunities to advocate for farm animals, establish connections with like-minded people and acquire knowledge of the various facets of animal protection. Interns enable the organization to operate their shelters, conduct educational programs and initiate campaigns to end the suffering of farm animals. Farm Sanctuary internships are available at both shelters, as well as in various departments within the organization.


To qualify, applicants must be 18 years or older with a strong personal commitment to Farm Sanctuary’s goals and veganism. Interns live a vegan lifestyle for the duration of their internship.
