Volunteer With Us!

Wild Sun Rescue Center offers unique volunteer programs.

Volunteers work 6 days a week, up to 8 hours a day based on current needs. The minimum stay is 2 weeks but we encourage longer stays.  Consistency is key for the animals in our care. This is why we only train volunteers who stay for longer periods to interact with certain animals. Specific duties are assigned based on the amount of time committed and overall experience. Must be 18 to join.
