Maintaining and expanding SSWC takes a tremendous amount of work. There is concrete to be poured, buildings to be painted, grass to be mowed, plants to be watered, crafts and baked goods to be made for fundraising events, tours to be guided …
You get the idea.
Serenity Springs Wildlife Center truly appreciates all of the people who choose to spend some of their free time helping us keep the sanctuary a safe, happy home for our residents. If you would like to be added to our group of outstanding, talented volunteers, we want to meet you!
Please feel free to email our Volunteer Coordinator with any questions or to be included on the email list for the next volunteer orientation.
How do you become a volunteer?
Be prepared to complete the following requirements prior to orientation:
1. There is a non-refundable $50 charge to run a basic background check. We run a high level background check for several reason: We talk with the public, work with kids, work around expensive equipment and work with dangerous animals. Trust is a big factor when volunteering here, we want to trust you!
2. You must attend least one guided tour at the sanctuary prior to your orientation.
3. You must be at least 18 years old.
4. Please provide two professional character references.
Once you are a volunteer, we ask you assist with at least 15 guided tours and become certified to host tours before supporting other special projects. We also ask that you commit to volunteer at the facility a minimum of once a month for 8 hours to remain active.
Our next volunteer orientation will be held date TBD in the Education Center at SSWC. If you would like to attend, please email our Volunteer Coordinator for details.
It is SSWC's policy that volunteers are not permitted to touch any animals or animal enclosure fencing at any time.
