Because high quality of care is critical to our patients, we use our most experienced volunteers for our animal care positions. Most of our animal care volunteers started volunteering for Flint Creek Wildlife in other capacities and then expanded their organizational role to include animal care once they had the required training and experience. We consider new volunteers for animal care positions only if they already have wildlife and/or veterinary experience gained elsewhere.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at Flint Creek Wildlife but do not have wildlife or veterinary experience, there are still ways to get involved. Our Northerly Island facility has Triage Assistants, for example, and although Triage Assistants do not directly work on the animals, they assist the Triager in a variety of capacities and gain invaluable experience that helps prepare them to eventually move into a Triager position.
If you are interested in volunteering, you may complete our on-line volunteer application form.
Thanks for considering to help Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation in our mission of Saving Lives.
