2024 Volunteer Caregiver Days
+ Vegan Potlucks!
Join us for a volunteer caregiver day and vegan potluck at the sanctuary! Caring for over 35 residents takes a village, so your help is greatly appreciated! Signing up for multiple days and carpooling with a friend is strongly encouraged!
If you participate in the vegan potluck, please bring a recipe card to share with others and note any allergens. In addition, FOTF will provide reusable plates, bowls, cups, and utensils. Thank you!

We love to have your volunteer help! But, first, we need to make sure that you are aware of a few things about this sanctuary and give you some information to prepare you for volunteering:
First and foremost, this is a home for our residents. As their caregivers, their comfort, safety, and well-being are our number one priority.
No one is guaranteed any interactions with the residents. The sanctuary is not a petting zoo.
If residents aren’t interested, we don’t obligate them to do anything they don’t feel comfortable with unless it’s for their primary care/needs.
If they walk away from you, please do not pursue them. We are in the residents’ homes, respecting their body language.
Snacks. Please, no animal products on the premises out of respect for our residents. Let us know if you have any questions about veganism. Please do not bring food of any kind into the animal enclosures for their safety and yours.
Bring a water bottle.
Wear/bring sunblock just in case.
Wear/bring bug spray just in case.
Wear clothing you don’t mind messing up, preferably pants, closed-toed shoes, preferably boots.
Parking and communication
Here is Carmen Pope’s cell for you to contact the day of the event. We don’t check emails or other forms of communication promptly for last-minute cancellations. (770) 876-7927. Text/call when you arrive & we will get you at the gate.
Our address is:
1701 Launius Rd.
Good Hope, Ga 30641
PARKING: please parallel park in grass on the shoulder of the street - see pictures**
Tours at the Sanctuary
Private tours are not available at the moment. But if you want to make a difference in the lives of our furry and feathered friends, you can join us on our Volunteer Caregiver day! We welcome everyone, regardless of your experience level. It's an educational opportunity to visit the sanctuary and give back to the animals.
To ensure your smooth visit to the sanctuary, we kindly ask you to complete a one-time waiver. Once you're done, we'll be able to check you in upon your return. Thank you for your cooperation!
