We are not open to the public at this time.
The animals at Kindred are considered our partners in the work we do in the community. A petting zoo uses farm animals for entertainment and profit purposes. Usually the animals are small babies and when they grow bigger they are sold for slaughter. Some of the animals at Kindred have been rescued from a petting zoo.
The minimum age for adult, unsupervised volunteers is 19 years old. People under 19 are welcome (and encouraged!) to volunteer, providing that they have parental or guardian supervision while at the farm.
We do have clients who volunteer in animal care at the farm alongside their support staff. Please attend a orientation shift to find out more. The link to the shift is found HERE
We have had students volunteer at our farm to receive credit. They must be 19 years old or attend with a guardian.
Yes! Find more info HERE
We have 2 shifts per day, 7 days a week. Morning shift is between 9am-11am, and afternoon shift is between 3-5pm.
We want you to be part of our community! By becoming a member of Kindred, it means you support our mission and vision. It’s important to us that our volunteers share our vision, as you truly make it possible for Kindred to exist. You can find out more about membership here.
Farm Animal Rescue
We are partnered with local and provincial animal welfare/rescue groups who identify farm animals in need who are hard to adopt out. We are often the animal’s last chance to find a new home
We’re sorry, but we do not accept owner surrendered animals.
Currently, we have 30 animals and are at capacity at our temporary farm. Can you help us find our fur-ever home, so we can help more animals in need?
Absolutely! It just needs to be feed that is part of our animal health program at the farm. Please contact us and we will be so grateful.
We would love to receive a card on behalf of one of our animals. It makes us so happy that our animals inspire you and this is what helps us keep going.

We are not government funded. The “Cups of Coffee Patrons” monthly donations (find out more here) make a huge impact on covering daily and emergency care for our animals.
