Animal Farm Foundation's mission is to secure equal treatment and opportunity for "pit bull" dogs. We strive to provide innovative and accessible solutions to the barriers "pit bull" dogs often face in shelters and communities. We recognize that in order to meet our mission, we must support the people who share our vision of a compassionate world where all dogs are treated as individuals.
Animal Farm Foundation offers a general interest program for shelter employees and volunteers of non-profit organizations. All programs are offered at no-cost, however interns are responsible for transportation costs and meals. Housing is provided. Read our blog for more: Internships: A Recipe in 10 Steps

ABOUT: Separating fact from fiction, our internship program allows animal welfare professionals and volunteers to experience "pit bull" dogs in an environment free of prejudices and misinformation. Interns are given the opportunity to view dogs as individuals, not as stereotypes. Recognizing each dog as an individual will allow shelter staff to better meet the needs of each dog. Any dog whose needs are met is happier, healthier and will go home faster!
WHO WILL BENEFIT: Anybody who works or volunteers to house, foster or shelter and place dogs as shelter employees and volunteers of non-profit organizations. Our diverse group of interns has included people who work in behavior, training, adoptions and daily care of dogs in shelters, rescues and animal controls. Interns have traveled to Animal Farm Foundation from all across the United States and Canada. The one thing all of the interns have had in common is their dedication to improving the lives of “pit bull” dogs in their own communities! The General Interest Program is limited to 12 interns; 8 overnight guests and 4 day-students.
REQUIREMENTS: In addition to completing the application, applicants must submit a resume outlining their volunteer or employment experience in regards to shelter, rescue of foster work.
