We could not do what we do without the support of our amazing team of volunteers. As a non-profit, none of our volunteers get paid. Some have been with us for many years, and some for a few months, but we at Ashburn's consider ourselves a family regardless. If you would be interested in becoming a volunteer, head to the volunteer page to find out more about what we do!

Janel started Ashburn's Animals over 10 years ago to help both people and animals. Since then, she has led the organization and its volunteers to what it is today. She loves every animal and 



Charlie has been at the farm since 2010. He specializes in anything mechanical and can fix just about anything that we need him to. Charlie is a full-time employee at SRS Electric and spends his evenings volunteering. His favorite animal is Comet the rabbit. 



Ethan has been a steady volunteer for us for about 2 years. He attends Selinsgrove Area High School and wants to enter the workforce upon graduation. At the farm, he does just about anything and has a love for Honey the horse. 



Tana has been involved with rescues for several years. She began volunteering with us in 2019. Tana is a huge animal lover and loves educating people on animals. Fun fact: She owns 4 dogs, a pig and has adopted 2 chinchillas from the rescue.

Nate became part of the team 6 years ago. He began as our "reptile guy" and still lives up to that title, working primarily with our cold-blooded critters. He attends Penn State with the dream of becoming an agriculture teacher and wildlife educator. His favorite animal is Roosevelt the corn snake. 



Haven is our youngest volunteer and has been with us she she was a few weeks old! She loves to help her cousin Katie feed the animals around the farm! She is always quick to remind us that horses say "neigh" and pigs say "oink oink." She loves all animals, especially snakes!

Grace began volunteering in 2019. She works with all the animals here, and has learned to do just about every job on the farm. She is a student at Lewisburg Area High School. 



Dalton began volunteering in 2019. Dalton is very willing to do anything asked of him, along with working with any animal. He is a student at Selinsgrove Middle School. His favorite animal at the farm is no longer at the farm because he was able to adopt it. The animal he adopted was a sand boa, that he named Scarlet. Racing go karts is another sport that he takes joy in competing in.
