Are you interested in a unique life and educational experience? Do you want to learn about and get to know animals like pigs, chickens, goats, cows, and turkeys? The Animal Care Internship may be for you.

Uplands PEAK is Indiana's first farmed animal sanctuary with a vegan centered mission. An internship at PEAK will provide you with a meaningful educational experience as well as give you the opportunity to make a difference. You'll work alongside the Co-founders, staff, volunteers, and other interns. You will most definitely put in a hard days work and it will be well worth it if you want to make a difference for farmed animals.

The Sanctuary moved to a new location recently, a 105 acre farm, in Freedom, IN. The new property provides plenty of space to hike, walk the woods and sit by the large pond. PEAK is 35 minutes from Bloomington and 1 hour and 15 minutes from downtown Indianapolis for those who would like to explore the surrounding areas.
