Rats and mice and raptors, oh my! The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, a Fort Collins non-profit is looking for volunteers to join our efforts at raptor rehabilitation and release through rodent care. Rodent wranglers are a group of volunteers who care for our in house colony of mice to support the recovery of injured raptors! These rodents are a critical component of returning raptors to the wild for a second chance at freedom.
Responsibilities include cleaning cages, transferring animals between cages, feeding and watering, record keeping, stocking supplies, mating, and weaning litter. All materials and training are provided; no experience is necessary, just a desire to ensure that the lives of these little creatures are of the best quality. You can choose what day and time you volunteer.
The preferred commitment is once a week for 2-4 hours on the same day each week; bi-weekly opportunities are also available. Hours are flexible, as long as you begin between 7 am and 4 pm. Ages 18 and up, students are welcome. Help our raptors remain wild and free!
