Volunteer with us – part time local volunteer

Part-time animal volunteer program in Silver Springs, FL:

We need YOU! If you can commit to a 4-hour shift to help with projects, you can get your feet wet and see the inner-workings of a true sanctuary. Your valuable time will make a huge difference in the lives of rescued wild animals that have come from inappropriate situations.

A half-day commitment may seem like a small amount of time to you, but can make a BIG difference for the animals.

Requirements:

  • Volunteers either live locally or have a place to stay on their own without requiring sanctuary lodging or meals.
  • There is no fee required to participate in this program.
  • Minimum age is 18.
  • Volunteers have their own transportation to and from the sanctuary to volunteer.
  • Volunteers work shifts as their schedule allows, with shifts potentially available seven days a week.
  • There are no minimum hours required, but the more involved you are, the more you are able to be trained to do. Casual or intermittent volunteers seldom reach a training level to be able to feed animals but are still valuable help on projects.
  • Volunteers who wish to train in animal care must be able to provide proof of a current negative TB test (within the past 12 months) or proof of a prior vaccination against TB.
  • In order to participate in activities involving bats, the volunteer must provide proof of a rabies vaccination.
  • Hepatitis B and tetanus vaccinations are strongly recommended.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, we would love to meet you!

  • Hello,

    My name is Alison Lemaitre and I’m from France. I’m interested in your resident volunteer. Can you tell me more about this programm please ? I’d like to stay 1 year in USA to take care animals. Is it possible in your center ?
    I’m 24 years old. I already went in Calgary for almost 6 months so I’m not afraid of staying in another country for 1 year.

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you

    Best regards

  • Hey Lisa!
    Like Alison, I am an international volunteer and am hoping to offer the helping hands of both my boyfriend and I on our trip to America next year. We are planning to stay in the country for 7+ months, and would love to be a part of your team. We are from the United Kingdom, and therefore hope we can enter your establishment for an extended period of time, I look forward to hearing from you, thank you so much!
