Break out your work gloves, we are going to Cotton Branch again! 

Location: 507 Cotton Branch Road, Leesville, SC 29070

Join animal-loving friends for a volunteer work day at our local non-profit farm animal sanctuary. Since 2004, Cotton Branch has provided refuge for neglected and abused farm animals. Pigs, horses, goats, donkeys, turkeys, geese, ducks, sheep, chickens, and a cow named Freckles all live contently on the farm. 

Volunteer days are 16+ only – if you’d like to arrange a personal tour of the farm (children welcome), please contact Jan at  

Please leave 4-legged family members at home.

What to wear: Old clothes/clothes that you don’t mind if they get dirty. Close toed shoes (no flip flops or sandals).
What to bring:


-Snack/lunch *Please ensure that it is vegan (no animal products) – out of respect for the animal ambassadors at Cotton Branch and for other attendees.*

-Sunscreen, a hat, and bug repellent

-Garden or work gloves (if you have them)

-If you’d like: treats for the residents. Produce for the animals is very welcome – carrots, apples, kale, and romaine leaf lettuce are especially popular. *No peppers or citrus and please be very careful with plastic bags/wrap as it is harmful for the animals to ingest.

Should you wish, financial donations are tax deductible, always needed and MUCH appreciated!
