Animal Care

Do you love animals? We are looking for a new long-term volunteer(s) who would like to be trained to care for our resident Goats & Chickens on Monday Evenings (around sundown). This opportunity is perfect for individuals or families!

Also... calling all adults! We are looking for volunteers who would like to be trained to feed and care for our resident Birds of Prey! We currently have an open shift on Tuesdays.

Because formal training will be provided by our Animal Care Manager, we are seeking volunteers who are able to provide us with a long-term commitment. The amount of time needed to complete animal care varies from person to person, but we typically estimate about 20 minutes for caring for our goats & chickens, and 30 minutes to 1 hour for caring for our Birds of Prey.

All volunteers are required to fill out a Volunteer Application so that a background check can be run prior to the start of their volunteer service.
