Animal care volunteers help feed, clean, and provide general care for orphaned, sick and injured wildlife (mammals and songbirds). Specific duties include food preparation, hand feeding baby wildlife, cleaning cages, maintaining a clean hospital environment, washing dishes, sweeping, doing laundry, refreshing food and water in outdoor enclosures, and other duties as specified by staff supervisors. This is a physically demanding position.
On average, we care for 2,300 wild animals per year. During our busy baby season (March - October), hundreds of baby squirrels, raccoons, songbirds, bunnies and more will come through our doors, and we couldn't help as many as we do without all of our wonderful, dedicated volunteers. You will be expected to make a six month commitment as a volunteer, working one five-hour shift per week. Shifts are 7:00a-12:00p, 12:00p-5:00p, and 5:00p-11:00p.
