Become a Volunteer
Students under 18 years old must get parents to sign a release waiver. Co-op students are always welcome. Assist with daily food preparation, feeding, watering and
cleaning. Keep work areas clean and well organized. Maintain grounds: Grass cutting, check animal enclosures and notify staff of any required repairs. Assist with public presentations, special tours, educational programs or any other functions.
Please note: A $100.00 one time non-refundable fee to volunteer will now be charged to offset initial administration and training expenses, as well as ensuring that applicants are giving their decision to volunteer with our special animals the serious consideration that it requires.

Corporate Retreats are a great way to reward your team, act as an incentive, build team spirit, or be a
reward for completion of a big project. We will design a program specifically suited to your needs which will include a tour of the sanctuary, working with our staff and animals, and lunch after. We can design a
"Corporate Challenge" or a working retreat involving everyday chores with our staff as we care for our animals. . Minimum of 10 people per retreat please. For information about corporate retreats please call or email Mary.
