We are looking for volunteers interested in helping the PRC Staff create enrichment for our amazing primate residents. As an Off-Site Volunteer, you would be creating enrichment from home or hosting a fundraising event or donation drive in your workplace or school. Our On-Site volunteer program is currently closed due to the pandemic, but you can still become a part of our team as an Off-Site Volunteer at home and then come to one of our enrichment drop off days at the sanctuary to bring the items you've made or donations you've gathered.

Mail or email us your Off-Site Volunteer Application today to be considered for a volunteer position at the Primate Rescue Center!

*Volunteers do not have physical contact or feed any of the primates.
