Volunteering – Idlewild Animal Sanctuary


Idlewild Animal Sanctuary, Conwy Valley. North Wales.


September 2017 – Present.

I began volunteering at Idlewild Animal Sanctuary in September, 2017. I opted to partake in voluntary work alongside my university studies. I sent a message querying about volunteering, and was soon invited in for an induction.


The sanctuary remains close to my heart as it follows a vegan lifestyle, similar to my own. My roles at the sanctuary include basic animal care and husbandry (Cleaning out, feeding, grooming), whilst working with a collection of wonderful animal species. Including: Small and large mammals (Goats, Sheep, Donkeys and Rabbits) And birds. I’ve made friends grown in confidence and expanded on both my knowledge and experience within the animal care industry. 

I also enjoy spending quality time with the animals and encouraging them to remain both mentally and physically stimulated through different forms of enrichment. Alongside ensuring they are content and healthy.

  1. Love this post and great photos. I am a huge advocate of volunteering…the benefits to those both giving and receiving are great and usually are vastly underestimated. There is something out there for everyone in the world of volunteering. I write a daily short read blog and will try to extol the virtues of volunteering as much as I can. Happy Friday 😁
