About

Wolf Hollow Transport Volunteers assess, rescue and transport injured and orphaned wild animals. Volunteers do not have to take an animal to the rehab center themselves. In Skagit County, they take animals to the ferry terminal or airport in Anacortes for transport to San Juan Island (SJI). For ferry transportation, volunteers locate a driver in the ferry waiting lines who is willing to transport the animal to San Juan Island, where they will be met by a Wolf Hollow staff member. (Volunteers on other Islands in the San Juans similarly take animals to their ferry terminal or airport for transportation). Alternatively, the animal is delivered to San Juan Airlines for transport. Transport Volunteers receive an orientation at the Rehab Center and training in assessing and transporting animals. Initially they are only asked to assist with small, easily-handled animals and progress to more challenging species as they gain experience. Animal Transport Volunteers do not have to commit to being available at all times. Volunteers list their days/times of availability so, when Wolf Hollow receives a call about an injured or orphaned wild animal, staff begin calling volunteers in the vicinity who are available and have the requisite experience. If an individual is not available, they will call the next name on the list. Prior experience is not necessary, just an interest in assisting wildlife. Transport volunteers must reside in Skagit, San Juan or northern Island counties.
