At Brooke USA, we rely on friends and supporters to help us fulfill our mission of significantly improving the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules and the people they serve throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America by raising funds and responsibly directing them to the areas of greatest need.

Volunteers are needed in every part of the work we do – from helping us at fundraising events and working booths to raise awareness to inputting names in our database and conducting online research. 

Note that, in many cases, our volunteers may work virtually while in others, your presence may be required. Please let us know what your interest is and we will try to place you as best we can and certainly in a role that you will find gratifying.

Our volunteers help make the world a more humane place for working equines.

You must be at least 16 years of age to volunteer. We also allow school and court mandated community service hours excluding violence of any kind, drug, theft, and felonies.
