Wildlife's Little Angels

Opportunity Description: 

Wildlife's Little Angels is a Tucson based non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center that focuses on ill, injured, and orphaned small mammals and birds. Our goal for our patients is a successful release back into the wild.

We're currently in need of volunteers as we move closer to our busiest time of year: baby season!
Volunteers can expect to:

Clean, sanitize, and organize inside and outside cages and enclosures
Prepare liquid and solid diets for patients
Use varying methods including syringe, tube, and gavage feeding baby birds and small mammals
Observe and record any abnormalities or changes in patients to staff
Develop and create enrichment to build life skills for young animals
Follow all proper protocol for different species and situations
We are currently looking for volunteers who can commit to a once weekly 2-hour shift: 8-10am or 6-8pm (shifts are the same throughout the week). As we get more animals, these shifts will extend to 4-hour shifts: 8am-12pm and 4-8pm with the possibility of a 12-4pm shift being added.

WLA is located on the east side near E Wrightstown Road and N Camino Seco and about a mile from the nearest bus stop, so volunteers should have their own reliable transportation.
