ORGANIZATION: THE WILDLIFE LINE

Caring individuals needed to help care for injured and orphaned wildlife. Small mammals and fawn predominantly (other species require additional qualifications).

Daily assistance is needed to prepare species-appropriate diets (as directed), feed and clean up behind the animals including laundry, dishes and cleaning up poop (being honest here).

Amount of hands-on animal interaction will vary by applicant and is at the sole discretion of the Executive Director. We are happy to train those willing to learn and able to follow specific instructions.

Direct animal contact is not required.

Shifts are either AM or PM and we'd appreciate a minimum commitment of 1x/week (or more) for the duration of the rehabilitation season.

2 Shifts

  • morning / 08:00 AM to 11:45 AM
    1x/week minimum but additional days are welcome
  • afternoon / 02:00 PM to 04:45 PM
    1x/week minimum but additional days are welcome
  • NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP

About THE WILDLIFE LINE

Location:

2 BARLOW FARM RD, SHERMAN, CT 06784, US

Mission Statement

The rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphaned or injured wildlife.

Description

Debbie Corcione stared the Wildlife-Line Inc about 12 yrs ago as state licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

Species cared for are small mammals (including raccoon, skunk & fox) with a focus on fawns. We are one of only 4 rehabilitation centers in the state that care for fawn. Our survival rate for fawns is 50% to 60%, which is very comparable to the wild.

Our goals are to improve all of our enclosures to create a more natural environment for the animals in our care and to develop programs to better educate the public about our native wildlife.
