Wild life experience unlike anything else
Clinic Volunteer (Former Employee) – San Rafael, CA – January 14, 2015
Typical work day for clinic volunteers (afternoon shift) includes animal food preparation, facility cleaning, restocking, and daily animal enclosure checking. This volunteer job provides an extremely unique experience of working up-close with native California wildlife. Fellow volunteers are almost always motivated and the supervising staff readily teaches volunteers new tasks. There is in large part plenty of cleaning (animals' dishes and enclosure bedding must be cleaned and replaced several times per day) but the experience is rewarding and worth the dirty work. The hardest parts may include the sometimes busy days when there are many patients, but caring for the wild animals and getting to see them released back into their natural habitat is the best.
Unique hands-on experience, friendly staff, good hours
Long necessary training period before volunteer work begins
