Skilled Worker Visits

As you can imagine, running a farm sanctuary is a lot of work with the majority of the focus being on animal care and well-being. Because of this, the focus on the surroundings becomes secondary despite daily efforts at upkeep.


If you’ve been to Cedar Row, you know that we take great pride in how the animals that call our sanctuary home are treated and that we also take pride in the way their homes look and are cared for. Flowers are planted, stalls are clean, fences are mended, etc.

After a busy start to the year, it’s time to shift focus towards items around the farm that need fixing and replacing so we’ve scheduled two skilled worker visits; one on May 21st, 2016 and the other on Jun 4th, 2016.

Essentially we’re looking for people who aren’t afraid to (safely) swing a hammer, handle a saw, dig post holes and repair fencing. There are other jobs to do as well. The skilled worker visits run from 10 AM to 4 PM and we’ll be providing a great vegan lunch for everyone. These differ from our regular work visit because we won’t be cleaning out the barn or other animal areas but you’ll definitely be interacting the our animal residents throughout the day (they’ll act as the supervisors!).

If you’re remotely handy, we’d love to hear from you so send us an e-mail at We really appreciate the help and support and can’t wait to see everyone.

  1. Hi my name is Kimberley and I manage the new Petvalu in Stratford. Every month we do an event and we are currently working on our August in store event. What we are thinking of doing is getting in some of the local rescues to talk and inform people about their rescue. We would love to have you come in with a few of your
    rescue animals and help make this a fabulous event.
    Please call me at 519-271-7707 or email at

    Thank you so much for everything you do to help out these animals in need !

    1. Hi Kimberly,

      Thanks for your interest; unfortunately we do not take our animals away from the sanctuary for events as it causes them a great deal of stress however we’d be interested in discussing this further if you’d like to e-mail us at Unfortunately comments on our posts aren’t generally monitored given all the other social media channels we use so we apologize for the delay in responding. thanks very much! 🙂
