Blake Caraska, Animal caregiver, Rescue Ranch Sanctuary. Citrus Heights, CA
My motivation for working at a farm animal sanctuary is simple. I’m essentially repaying a debt. I’ve taken so much from animals in my life and I wanted to try to pay that back. Going vegan was a good start, but I really wanted to give back.
I love meeting all the different volunteers, from all walks of life. It’s very encouraging to meet people with the same ideas and ideals as our organization. People sacrificing their free time to come get dirty and help the animals.
