Wanted: Special people for a very special mission
Do you want to experience the heartwarming satisfaction that comes from helping some very special animals who can’t help themselves? If you have ever volunteered your time to help a worthy cause, then you know that wonderful feeling of self-satisfaction. If you have never been a volunteer, this would be a great opportunity to start! In either case, we want you!
If you believe that all life is precious, join our corps of volunteers and help The Hermitage carry out its mission.
