Want to help wildlife, but aren't able to get to our facility on a regular basis? Want to be able to do some good from home? Hotline specialist is the position for you!
Hotline Volunteers are often the first contact the public has with Wildlife Care Association. Hotline Volunteers periodically check our messaging system and return calls from people who found an injured animal or have an animal concern.

Prior knowledge or experience with wildlife in the greater Sacramento area is helpful, but not required. You will be given all the training and resources you need. New volunteers will come to the facility for orientation, and for their first two hotline shifts. After that you can answer the hotline anywhere you have access to a phone!
