Community Service:

Are you interested in volunteering at Woodrock for your 10 hours of  School Community Service?

Woodrock Animal Rescue  have proudly developed a Woodrock Community Service Initiative, to support the animal loving school learners to achieve their school required community service hours.

Woodrock Animal Rescue Community Service Initiative includes the following to achieve the 10 hours:

  • Groups of a minimum of 10 learners, come to our shelter on a pre-scheduled date and time. Your day will be filled with a talk, walking, feeding the farm animals, providing touch love and rehabilitating the shy new animals arriving. Clean out areas. Six hours supervised volunteering at Woodrock Animal Rescue (8am to 2pm).
  • Each learner will be expected to take home a Woodrock Animal Rescue collection tin can. The proceeds of the money in the tin will be used towards our Mission of Sterilisation. 
  • Every learner who has taken part in the Woodrock Community service project and has returned the full Woodrock Animal Rescue collection tin can will receive a letter confirming that you have completed your 10 hour of community service. 

​Learners need to APPLY to take part as we need a minimum of 10 learners to run the programme for a day. To apply please download and complete the attached form. Email the completed form to hello@woodrockanimalrescue.co.za
