Our program is a volunteer program designed for volunteers to assist in all tasks like feeding, maintenance and entertaining animals that are living at the shelter.
If you like
reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and are also interested in preserving the
environment, you will be perfect for this program. You will be helping out at and supporting a local animal shelter. This shelter not only takes in homeless animals, but also wild animals which are in a bad condition of any kind and aims at releasing them back into the wild as soon as they are healthy and well again.
This type of volunteering is perfect for adult volunteers who want help for a longer time. The volunteer can come every day he or she wants within the hole month. It is also necessary always to assist in the shelter shirt and respect the conditions of volunteering. Furthermore, our programs are family friendly and we love to welcome families with little children.
In addition to the care-taking of the animals, volunteers help us welcoming visitors at the entrance, explaining our goals and answering any questions that the visitors may have about the shelter or its resident animals. Learning about wildlife management will grow as the volunteer spend more days in the shelter, from positive interaction with animals to good diet and reproduction.
Our main goal at the end of the day will always be to take care of wild animals and free them back to nature where they belong.
