Looking to gain experience in animal care? Animal care assistants help keeper and education staff with the daily chores involved with our animals. Volunteers must be 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 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.
