Regularly scheduled volunteer activities:
The last Sunday of every month the sanctuary hosts a fun event that not only enriches the lives of many, many animals, but brings a sense of community to all animal lovers in the region. Come by and express your artistic creativity, and help make easy, colorful toys for enrichment fun. Enjoy watching the resident birds, monkeys, tortoises and camels and play with them. Learn all about the “Sunday Funday Animal of the Month” and maybe even participate in a hands-on experience to really inspire your artistry! Bring family or friends and help make a difference in your community! Sips n Snacks provided. Click on the calendar in the right column, and select the next Sunday Funday and sign up so we know you’re coming!
On alternating Tuesdays the turtles and tortoises get scrubbed down, cleaned up and shined by volunteers who are looking for a wet and wild afternoon! We also chop up some melons as cool treats for our grateful little friends (some not so little!). And everyone gets to feed the turtles and tortoises some of their favorite fare. If we have time, we also do weigh-ins, to ensure their positive progress and good health.
Food Prep Friday
Join us every other Friday for Food Prep Friday. With over 100 exotic animals at the We Care Wildlife Sanctuary there is a lot of food to be prepared for the upcoming two weeks. Preparing food and feeding all of these exotic friends can take up many hours each week–hours that we can better invest in personal one-on-one timer with each of the animals, to ensure they are healthy and fulfilled. Your help is very much appreciated, because many hands make light work!
We Need Your expertise!
If you are a skilled craftsman or a professional who would like to donate your services to We Care Wildlife Sanctuary, we very much appreciate your contribution! We need help with construction, maintenance, accounting, legal, fences, painting, veterinary, flatwork, ironwork, signage, road construction, electrical, plumbing, framing, etc.
If you have materials to donate, we will gladly receive things that the sanctuary needs. If you would like to get something that we need from one of these stores, we always appreciate it. This can include food, building materials, paint, sealer, fencing, etc. We need it all!
