Volunteers and interns/externs play a critical role at SFWC by expanding our ability to rescue and rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife. In 2016, our volunteers donated nearly 23,000 hours of service and helped us care for more than 12,000 animals. In addition, our intern/extern program helps educate the next generation of wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians, biologists and other science-related professionals.
The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete the online application found here. All volunteers, including students interested in school service hours, must complete the volunteer application, then attend an on-site orientation. More information can be found on the application.
