We have all types of general maintenance, yard maintenance, painting, computer work, tour guide, school field trips, cleaning, and hundreds of other jobs that keep the sanctuary going on a daily basis. We are also in need of volunteer workers to help repair and maintain existing habitats and help build new enclosures for the animals. Find more information at https://cattyshack.org/partner/volunteer/. After submitting an application, you will be invited to attend an orientation session, normally held on the second Saturday of each month at 10am (your email will have the most current information).

Everything from publicity/advertising to administrative work and skilled/manual labor is needed at the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary.

The skills that we are looking for in volunteers listed in this post represents just a small amount of the work we do. Many people with different backgrounds find this work enjoyable and rewarding. No matter your particular skills or education, any and all help is much needed and very much appreciated.

About The Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary

Location:

1860 Starratt Road, Jacksonville, FL 32226, US

Mission Statement

Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. "Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their plight in the wild and captivity". Our primary focus is in the rescue of cats from serious situations. Once an animal is taken in at Catty Shack Ranch, they have a loving, forever home for life. We do not breed, sell, or trade any of our animals. Our current residents include tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, bobcats, arctic foxes, and coatimundis (the last two are "honorary cats").

Description

The Catty Shack Ranch is dedicated the rescue and care of big cats. We provide sanctuary to cats confiscated by the state for illegal ownership, improper enclosures or maltreatment. We also educate the public to discourage illegal, private ownership. Wild animals, especially big cats, do not make good "house" pets.
