Volunteer to make a difference for native Missouri wildlife!

Work alongside our expert staff and volunteer rehabilitators caring for injured, ill, and orphaned native Missouri wildlife. This includes everything from feeding patients and enclosure cleaning, to diet-preparation, and support tasks for patients in the clinic.

Previous experience is not required, and training will be provided. Dedicated volunteers make up the majority of our workforce, and we ask all new volunteers to agree to a minimum commitment of service.
