Animal Care

Animal Care 

We are always looking for interested volunteers to help us take care of our animals. Please note that all interested animal care volunteers will have a brief interview and go through training so they are well-equipped. 

If you are interested in becoming an animal care volunteer, please fill out the form using the sign up button. 



We have a small composting site and use our animals to help the process. Volunteers will be needed to help with turning the pile, chopping material and more. No experience necessary and training will be provided.
