Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Wildlife Care Association, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of local wildlife. WCA is committed to educating and instructing the community in the respect, appreciation, and care of local wildlife. WCA is pledged to the management and preservation of wildlife habitat.
Wildlife Care Association is a non-profit organization based out of McClellan California (Sacramento area) that is permitted by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to care for wildlife. WCA is open year round, seven days a week including most holidays.
Concerned citizens and local agencies bring us nearly 6000 sick, injured, or orphaned wild animals each year. With the help of volunteers, interns, staff, and local veterinarians, WCA provides medical services to these animals. Once the animals have recovered from their injuries or illness, or have grown and learned to fend for themselves, WCA releases them back into the wild, giving wildlife a second chance in life.
WCA also provides many educational opportunities to its volunteers and to the local Sacramento community. WCA offers live animal presentations to youth groups and other organizations to educate our community about local wildlife. WCA provides training for all of its volunteer positions and encourages its volunteers to expand their involvement in the organization by offering additional training opportunities and classes.
WCA is always looking for new volunteers to join our ranks. Our greatest need for volunteers comes during the spring and summer months when many local animals are breeding.
