Hello and Welcome to Planet Rehab! This is our Volunteer Opportunity for both weekdays and weekends. WEEK DAYS available are MONDAY-FRIDAY 9 AM - 12 Noon. WEEKENDS available are SATURDAY & SUNDAY 9 AM-2PM. PLEASE APPLY ONLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS, COMMITTED, AND HAVE TIME TO COMMIT. These are living beings and if someone flakes, that means that possibly the animals are not cared for properly.

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR RETIRED PEOPLE!

We are all about protecting the environment. We have a small animal sanctuary -most of which are rescues with approx. 350 animals. The animals all have an important role to play as Ambassadors for Nature! Currently HUMANS have sped up the natural extinction rate by 1000% according to the United Nations Environmental Program Report and this is causing the extinction of 150-200 species each day! The animals at the Planet Rehab Animal Sanctuary are crucial in helping us nurture the relationship between humanity and nature and to inspire better protection for nature.

Some of the Animals at Planet Rehab include:

Alpaca, Goats, Bunnies, Sulcata Tortoises, Turtles, Cats, Fish, & over 35 species of birds of which 6 of our species are ranked among the most beautiful birds in the world (Scarlet Macaw, Peacocks, Lady Gouldian Finches, Sun Conures, Wood Ducks, Mandarin Ducks, Chinese Golden Pheasants), AND MORE!

We open up to the public in the hopes that people will feel more connected to nature. We are opening up our volunteer opportunities and are developing Care Teams to look after the animals.
THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR RETIRED PEOPLE! There is a one time orientation fee of $25 (you can pay by going to our website www.planetrehab.org and clicking DONATE, or you can bring a check or cash the day of your orientation. Orientation sessions are given on an "as needed" basis). You MUST go to our website and fill out a Volunteer Application. To fill out your application please go to: www.planetrehab.org -> Get Involved -> Volunteer and simply fill in the fields listed under Animal Care Application. The Care team members are responsible for providing animals with food and water, cleanup and overall well being of animals. We are looking for passionate and committed animal lovers who work well in team settings.

It is also VITAL that you understand WHO we are so please go to our website and learn about our mission (www.planetrehab.org)

IMPORTANT: The Animal Sanctuary is in a RESIDENTIAL neighborhood (BEHIND THE HOUSE). Please do not disrespect our neighbors. Also please park on Cataract Street. Thanks!
