The Zoo has many dedicated volunteers who participate in animal care, fundraising, and educational presentations.
Our Volunteer Team consists of dedicated individuals who are committed to helping provide the best quality of care for our animal ambassadors. With 40 acres and a collection of close to 300 animals there is much to do every single day. By helping us to maintain a clean and well-operated facility, volunteers allow the staff to focus more attention on enrichment and training. Volunteers are trained and instructed on how to clean and maintain a comfortable home environment for our ambassadors as well as upkeep the Zoo in general.
The opportunity to work along side these animals is an invaluable experience and we look only for the most responsible and self-motivated of individuals. If you think you would be a good addition to our Volunteer Team please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will notify you of the next Volunteer Orientation, which is hosted periodically at the Zoo. Please indicate any special skills you have or areas you would like to be involved in such as landscaping, carpentry, computer work, or even pickup of donated items. You can make a big difference in the lives of these amazing creatures!
Volunteer Extraordinaire Lee was a volunteer for over 10 years and his dedication was an inspiration to all. He passed away in early 2012 and will be missed greatly by our staff, volunteers, and animals, and all his family and friends who knew and loved him.

Our volunteers are a crucial part of this organization.We realize that everyone has their own special interests; some individuals may be more interested in bears, others in big cats, and others in reptiles, etc. That’s great, however, it is imperative to us that all volunteers participate in a variety of areas. Since the safety of our animals and volunteers is first and foremost, we have a process for volunteers to go through before they start working hands on with animals.
Our volunteers do not handle bears, cats, primates and other select animals due to safety and regulations.
We welcome new volunteers at an introductory Orientation held periodically throughout the year. At Orientation, you will be given an overview of the expectations and opportunities that are available to volunteers.
Thank you again for your interest. It is always wonderful to know that there are people out there who truly care about animals and want to contribute their time and energy to the animal community. We look forward to seeing you at Orientation.
