Florida TRAC’s dedicated volunteer team is the backbone of our organization. You don’t need to have horse experience but you need to feel comfortable with the horses and be able to complete tasks independently. There are many areas in which volunteer assistance is appreciated:
horse care (bathing, grooming, etc.)
photographing available horses for adoption
special events and fundraisers
Florida TRAC needs assistance 7 days a week and operates both mornings and afternoons. Upon completing our volunteer training, the Florida TRAC Volunteer Manager will place you in the perfect role based on your skill set and abilities with horses.
Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Please fill out the Volunteer application form found here: and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents or legal guardians must fill out the form for children under 18.
