If you're interested in learning more about ferret care, health, medication, illness and being surrounded by other ferret owners with a lot of experience, volunteering at the shelter may be for you! Please read about the work required at the shelter on the Volunteer Information page. It's not a glamorous job, but it is an educational and rewarding one.
We are looking for volunteers 18 years or older, that can come in on a regular schedule so that we can ensure all ferrets get their daily playtime and medication in a timely manner. (16+ is allowed with parent/guardian)
After reading the Volunteer Information page, please contact Andrew Weber at firstname.lastname@example.org - OR - simply fill out our volunteer form and we will get back to you! Thank you!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
