Animal Care

Animal Care Volunteers are asked to commit to coming to the rehab center for at least one four hour shift at a regular time each week, e.g. from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesdays. These volunteers work with our rehab. staff and interns to prepare foods and formulas, feed a range of different types of animals, clean cages and care facilities, set up outdoor cages for animals, help with occasional rescues and take part in releasing animals back into the wild. No previous experience of wildlife rehab. is required. New volunteers receive an orientation and “hands-on” training in diets, feeding techniques etc.

Assessment and Transportation Volunteers

Due to our location on San Juan Island, our staff is not able to quickly respond to animal calls on other islands and the mainland, so we have a network of volunteers who help by assessing the condition of animals, catching them if necessary and transporting them to Wolf Hollow. Some of these volunteers deal directly with the animals, while others are pilots or boat owners who are willing to transport animals to or from San Juan Island.

Fund Raising Events

Wolf Hollow holds a number of fundraising events each year. Volunteers help organize and run these events by carrying out a wide range of different tasks – from putting up posters, making phone calls and selling tickets to baking pies or parking cars!
