Home Based Wild Mammal Foster Care

ORGANIZATION: Napa Wildlife Rescue

  • 1 person is interested



Volunteer with Napa Wildlife Rescue to care for wild mammal orphans at your home during the reproductive season (Ranges from February-October depending on species). This is a unique opportunity that requires emotional maturity and being willing to put the animal's needs first. We provide training, mentoring, and supplies, you provide the round the clock care our mammal orphans require. Species that are home rehabilitated are squirrels, opossums, skunks, and raccoons. Home based volunteers care for a litter of orphan mammals from the age when they come in and are stable for transfer until weaned. Once weaned, the mammals return to the clinic to enter pre-release enclosures, receive vaccines, and gain skills for the wild. Requirements are having a room that you can keep quiet and closed off from pets where the wild animals in their enclosures will be housed. You also must be 18 to foster wild animal babies.
