About

We are looking for volunteers that are willing to commit at least one three to four hour shift a week to handle calls pertaining to wildlife emergencies and non-emergencies in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. You do not have to reside in one of the states. We will provide training on what to expect, typical scenarios you will encounter, virtual and in person resources available, and how to direct each call. We will also provide education on state and federal regulations regarding wildlife rehabilitation. This is a great introduction to the ins and outs of wildlife rehabilitation. We have a network of volunteer transporters throughout these states. We also work with permitted wildlife rehabilitators throughout Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee along with veterinary clinics that will triage injured and orphaned wildlife. You can commit to more than one shift if you are interested. We will have a hotline number that is forwarded to your cell phone for you to handle the calls during your volunteer shift. Your number or personal information will not be given to the caller. WREN is made up of entirely volunteers. We have handled over 2,000 cases since we began transporting wildlife thanks to our volunteers. Don't hesitate to e-mail us at volunteerwren@gmail.com.
