Volunteering/Interning at WRC

Working with our patients is incredibly hard work but it's wonderfully rewarding. The opportunity to help care for a wild animal, giving it a second chance at life, is something you'll remember forever.

We offer two ways of joining us: volunteering or interning. Volunteering requires one shift a week, interning requires 20-30 hrs/wk.

We also offer special wildlife medicine internships for students enrolled in veterinary school.

If you're interested in volunteering with us, please choose the primary area in which you're interested for your application. Many of our volunteers transition to other areas in the building once they've started. We offer many growth opportunities and the chance to work with other species in different areas. You'll have the chance to discuss these options with our volunteer director when we begin the orientation and scheduling process. For now, choose your first preference.

DISCLAIMER: For people with peanut allergies: We use peanuts throughout the building. You will be exposed to them.
