Critter Care Wildlife Society has been in operation since 1984. We specialize in the treatment, care and release of native mammal species. We're not government funded. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+

Depending on the time of year you wish to come will be different experiences. Baby season if the most popular which typically if from April – September. Where orphaned animals are brought into care to hand raised and released back into the wild. Quieter months are from Oct- March. Typical it is late babies that could not be release before winter, and so will over winter at the center until spring and caring for injured adult animals that are struggling through the winter.

Critter Care Wildlife Society specializes in the treatment, care, and release of sick, injured, and orphaned native mammal species of British Columbia’s Southern and Lower mainland. Some of species include, Raccoons, River Otters, Bobcats, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Fawns, Beavers, Black Bears, Rabbits, Hares, Mice, Weasels, Marmots, Coyotes and much more We are the only facility in BC specializing in the care of mammals and one of only three bear rehabilitation facilities in the province. In addition to rehabilitation, we are involved in community-based education programs at primary levels. We work to educate the public through involvement in civic groups, senior’s homes and assist other wildlife management organizations. Our live on-site volunteer program has reached a new landmark this year, extending invitations to more than 100+ young adults from every continent on the planet par Antarctica! So far.


A day in the life of a live-in volunteer (Baby Season) 

6am: During baby season this will often be your first feed. You may have multiple species to feed all before morning meeting. Depending on the species you have and their ages, you may be feeding up to 15 times a day! 8.45 morning meeting – Everyone should be done breakfast and have fed and changed the potties of any animals in their care. This is where the interns are read the “To Do List” which will describe what tasks are to be done that workday. It is also a good opportunity for interns and supervisors to discuss any important matters or any events we have coming up! Morning Clean- The triage centre has high traffic all day, everyday! It takes a whole team to keep the centre clean. After morning meeting the interns will share the jobs and clean the entire house top to bottom to ensure it is presentable to the public, as well as comfortable for themselves Cage Cleaning- we often have volunteers attend the centre to assist us with cage cleaning, but it is inevitable that you will have to clean a cage or two! You may be cleaning your Raccoons, Squirrels, Beavers, Bears or maybe all the above! 

 Daily jobs- the daily jobs are shared amongst interns to ensure everyone is contributing to keeping the centre running. Jobs include laundry, cooking eggs or chicken, making food plates, organizing the closets, sorting the deck, changing boot dips and so on. It is our job to schedule these tasks as needed around any animals in your care and the To Do List. Lunch- your lunch will be scheduled so that not everyone is in the kitchen at once! You are allowed a 30-minute lunch break, and two 15-minute breaks throughout the day. Afternoon- More cleaning, the To Do List, hopefully a rescue or exam and we try to schedule in enrichment and team building as often as we can! Evening clean- The centre is to be cleaned top to bottom once again. Depending on the season, this may be done in the middle of the day too! After evening clean it is time to give the animals their dinner. Potties are to be changed and some animals may be locked up depending on the weather.


You are free to do as you wish on your days off.  If you have babies you are still required to feed them, even on days off.  Depending on the time of year we frequently do "Team Building" we have gone out for food/ Trampoline parks/ sight seeing...
