Location of Opportunity:

Opportunity Description: 

Tucson Wildlife Center (TWC) has provided emergency medical care for all of Southern Arizona's Wildlife for the past 18 years. In 2015 over 3,000 injured or orphaned wild animals passed through our doors. TWC is dedicated to Rescue, Rehab, Release and promoting habitat protection and coexistence through education.

Presently, we are in need of "like minded" volunteers to help with the expected Spring rush of injured and orphaned young birds, bunnies and others. Volunteers will help prepare formulas, feed, weigh, observe and insure a clean living environment for the animals. Volunteers will come away with a better understanding of the difficulties facing Arizona's wildlife. Proof of a current tetanus inoculation is required.
