An animal sanctuary in Port Perry says until they get more volunteers, they can’t rescue more animals.
Pegasus Animal Sanctuary Co-Founder Jack Hurst says their volunteers dropped off with the onset of the pandemic and it’s been a trying time since.
They need about 50 volunteers and they currently have 17.
“We want to make sure we get enough of everybody to come to all the different time slots,” shared Hurst. “Then they can do the kind of things we need to do to take care of our animals and keep them happy.”
The sanctuary houses donkeys, horses, ducks, pigs, chickens and other animals.
Volunteers would help feed, exercise, and groom the animals and clean the barn.
Hurst says health measures have been put in place, like social distancing, face masks and hand washing.
He welcomes anyone interested in volunteering to call him directly at 647-292-1700.
