Hotline Volunteers Needed!

Make a difference and save wildlife from the comfort of your own home

This opportunity is perfect for those that cannot commit to coming to the center. This will require answering our hotline and correctly assessing the best course of action for the animal on the end of the line. Sometimes, the animals need left alone, sometimes they need to come into care and sometimes, people just need to be educated to live symbotically with our local wildlife. We can get upwards of 50 voicemails a day in the busy season. This job can be done completely from the comfort of your own home! 

Requirements: 4 hours shifts every week 
No prior training necessary!

We will hold a hotline training class via Zoom on January 29, 2022.
