Board of Directors
      Volunteers are the mainstay of the Center. Volunteers are responsible for basic cleaning, feeding, record keeping and general maintenance. The activities that keep the animals healthy, clean, and well fed.
      The typical volunteer works 4 to 6 hours one day a week at the Center. There training requirements and age restrictions. Click on the link below for more information.
      Many volunteers are skilled in handling the common animals. Sometimes they assist with medical treatments. Some volunteers take advantage of advanced training and develop the skills to handle the more difficult and dangerous animals. Other volunteers specialize in feeding infant birds or mammals. This is the most common activity in the spring and summer.

      There is an Executive Director and two part time Animal Care Coordinators that provide support, training, and guidance for the volunteers.
