The volunteer if not handling animals will just help in cleaning cages. I will take the animal/animals out of cage for cleaning and they will do the rest. Once cleaned, I will put animal back in the cage. If they are handling animals, they will go thru training on how to hold them and then give them off to a guest without anyone being bit. They will also get a booklet that will give them info on each animal that we have in the program. Once sign off on an animal and they learn the facts about the animals, they will get a chance to go on events with us. We go to schools, camps, flea market, assisted living facilities, outside events and some birthday parties. The age limit is 16 with parents signed permission to 101. Must not care about getting dirty or having an animal poo or pee on them and if handled properly, they won't get bit.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Animal Love Inc.
1567 Wacker Avenue, SE, Palm Bay, FL 32909, US
We rescue unwanted exotic animals and then in turn they become our animal ambassadors for our hands on programs. We take them to schools, summer camps, assisted living facilities, birthday parties, church events, outside events and any place people want to learn about our wildlife. Everyone gets a chance to learn something about our animals, they get to either hold/touch most of the animals that we bring to the events. We want everyone to learn that snakes are not slimy, the number of eye lids a alligator has or how big is a Wallaby. The animals and our environment if not taken care of will not be here in the future. If animals become extent, then we are next.
We rescue exotic animals, care for them and get them use to people and in turn they help us teach everyone about themselves.
