I volunteer at The West Place Animal Sanctuary which has developed into a very rewarding experience for me! Having never been around large animals (Horses)etc.. this was something I overcame and thrive on feeding,cleaning and being with them now! Interacting with animals and other personnel there has really broaden my horizons! it gives a special feeling to assist in the operation of this non-profit and a sense of fulfillment in participating!

The best Animal Sanctuary in the northeast! Great volunteers, great work environment and a great executive director... 5 stars!
West Place Animal Sanctuary is truly an asset to RI, being the only type of farm animal sanctuary of its kind in the entire state! It’s a gorgeous property of 8 acres where the rescued animals roam, graze and play. It’s such a wonderful experience to volunteer and serve on the Board!
West Place Animal Sanctuary is an invaluable organization that cares for hundreds of animals and wildlife each year. The greatest care is given to each and every animal on a daily basis by members and volunteers who are extremely compassionate and dedicated people. From cleaning stalls and enclosures to feedings to giving first aid and veterinary care, the work that these individuals do to maintain such a clean, well organized and pristine environment for all animals that live there is completely outstanding. I’m proud to see such an amazing organization in our community.
This invaluable organization keeps growing and helping. If you haven't gotten involved, this is the place!
A beneficial organization to animals. The care is genuine and the education they provide to children and adults alike is well received.
This peaceful sanctuary gives both unwanted farm animals and injured wild ducks and wild turkeys a fresh start. Organized by a DEM permitted wildlife rehabilitator, West Place has a constant influx of waterfowl and Eastern American wild turkeys, providing food, shelter, care and necessary medical attention. The animals are also utilized to educate the public, by appearing at festivals and Easter Egg hunts around the area. Animals of the sanctuary have been featured in various newspapers and the RI Bar Journal.
