May 1 Update about COVID-19: We have extended the suspension of our volunteer program. Unfortunately, we do not have a set date for welcoming volunteers back.
We are so appreciative for your service, but we are following recommendations by our local, state and national government officials and offices, and are limiting foot traffic as much as possible to reduce the chance of the virus spreading. Equine volunteers continue to assist at our farm because social distancing is easier at the farm and we have fragile foals who need frequent feedings, but volunteering at our other locations remains closed for now.

KHS has special events throughout the year that we need help from volunteers. Below is a list of special events and their dates. If you are interested in helping out at any of these please contact the Community Relations Manager for more information.
