Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue (YUWR) Volunteer Information
The All-Purpose Volunteer is involved in animal care, but that individual might also be assisting with wildlife calls, general cleaning, gardening, and maintenance. Please let us know if there is anything else you are interested in helping with, such as office management or fund-raising. We can find a use for any skill or interest!
The Animal Care Volunteer works hands on with our wildlife patients. They are responsible for their day to day care which involves food preparation, weighing, medicating and feeding animals as well as cleaning cages, kennels, and other general tasks. Animal Care volunteers also have the unique opportunity to learn more about the species of animals they are caring for, which include fawns, squirrels, opossums and other wildlife. More often, these volunteers would come up for a hour or two every other day to feed the animals.
