Reboot at the Rescue!

Once a month we bring four different groups of students to get messy, snuggle some animals,

volunteer their time and learn some of the valuable lessons our animals can teach.

From celebrating differences to exploring how to turn chaos into beauty,

we take a different animal story each month and

turn it into a lesson applicable to life outside of our gates.


We invite you into this safe place as a chance to take a deep breathe, reboot your mindset,

and return to the world with a fresh reminder of the things that are important.



* What does becoming a volunteer at Safe In Austin mean?

Safe In Austin has 150+ rescues to take care of on a daily basis and we are always in search of regular ongoing volunteers to aid us in upholding the quality of care needed every day. Weekly, Bi-Weekly, or Monthly Volunteers are welcome to form a relationship with the animals as they become familiar with our ever-changing routines.

* Can my children volunteer?

Children are welcome to volunteer with a parent or guardian that is 21+ years of age. We ask that Children accompany their adult volunteers at all times to ensure their safety. Here at the Rescue Ranch, we ask all of our guests to practice walking feet and gentle voices around the animals.

* What should we wear or bring with us?

We suggest weather appropriate clothing that you won't mind getting a little muddy. Closed-toe shoes are a must! Don't forget to bring some water along to drink! Work gloves are recommended and be prepared to get dirty!!

* Can we come volunteer to just pet the animals?

Our volunteer program are for those who can dedicate time to habitat cleaning, animal feeding, along with other maintenance projects on some frequent basis. We offer private tours for those wanting to spend one on one time with the animals.
