Volunteers of the Month

SAFE is incredibly fortunate to have such amazing volunteers. Each month, we select an exceptional volunteer to honor as our Volunteer of the Month. We ask them to share their stories, including why they decided to start volunteering at SAFE and who their favorite SAFE horses are. It’s a unique insight into what its like to volunteer here.
