Wild Care receives a large volume of phone calls every day, regarding wildlife in distress. The callers are not always able to capture and/or transport animals to our center.
Our clinic volunteers are an invaluable resource and uphold the functionality of the clinic by cleaning/disinfecting laundry, dishes, crates, habitats, floors and aviaries. Other tasks may include setting up habitats, grocery shopping, preparing food dishes, and occasionally helping with animal restraint. Volunteers should be prepared to get a little dirty in this department.
Our baby bird volunteers help raise infant songbirds in three-hour shifts between 6am and 6pm every day. The birds must all be hand-fed a special formula, and be offered appropriate food dishes, such as worms, fruit, veggies, and seed.
