Live On Site Farm Animal, Dog and Cat Caretakers! – Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary – Hartville, WY

We are setting records with the numbers of animals we are saving!

We are hiring in our Farm, Cat and Dog departments! Shared housing is available onsite. Due to our remoteness, living offsite is not possible. Please be open to sharing a house with like minded, courteous people, usually two people per house.

Working at the sanctuary comes with some amazing challenges and the biggest rewards. If you are a truly dedicated animal person this may just be the opportunity you have been looking for.

What are some of the qualities we are looking for in any of our positions? In no particular order –

  • Dedicated to animal wellbeing without compromise.
  • Independent and hard working.

  • Detail orientated and thorough record keeping
  • Consistently strive to not just provide the highest quality of care to resident animals but improve the quality of care

Kindness Ranch is hiring for live on site animal caregivers. It is of utmost importance to remember we are a positive reinforcement – force free, fear free facility

This is an emotionally challenging position and requires a very dedicated person. You must be okay with working in a remote location and going long periods of time without interacting with many people. Cell phone signals and internet are intermittent at the best of times. The heartbreaks are real, as are the rewards – this is not a position that you come for to “heal” yourself, this is a position you come to in order to heal others.
