As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Blank Park Zoo is looking for volunteers who have a desire to help care for animals in our care!
Animal care volunteers assist Zoo Keepers with the daily chores for the animals at Blank Park Zoo. Must be 18 or older and able to clean, sweep, hose, cut up diets, lift heavy loads and follow specific directions. Opportunities are available in the mornings 7 days a week, 8:00am - 12:00pm, with the following teams: Aquatics/Amphibians, Avian/Reptiles, Education, Large Mammals, and Small Mammals.
Please Note: Volunteers are placed on a need by need basis and do not work directly with the animals. Interest in these opportunities does not guarantee there is spot available, area managers determine the number of volunteers allowed to work in their area.
