Volunteers assist with special events, animal care, gardening, tours, arts and crafts, child development, and much more. Some departments can utilize volunteers as young as 12, while others require the volunteer to be at least 18. Short-term options include helping with fairs, festivals, sports activities and other one-day events. On-going opportunities offer the chance to work with animals as well as youth and seniors.
