ANIMAL CARE INTERNSHIP
Animal Care interns help in all aspects of operations including the full rehabilitation process, answering phone calls and emails about wildlife interactions, the daily care of injured and orphaned wildlife and their enclosures, assisting with transport, and communications with the wildlife rehabilitation network in western NC. Interns assist in facility upkeep and maintenance as needed and are provided the opportunity to experience all aspects of the non-profit if there is interest.
No two days in wildlife rehabilitation are the same. Interns must be flexible, dedicated, dependable, and comfortable working in a team setting with other volunteers and communicating with the public.
Interns are required to commit to a 4-5 month internship period, and will carry out a weekly set schedule that they are accountable for during the entirety of their internship. Interns must be able to dedicate 15-30 hours per week within our animal care facilities operating hours. Hour commitments are based on seasonal needs.
Thank you for your interest in helping our native wildlife!
