Opportunities for Adults (18+)

As a busy non-profit wildlife hospital, we rely heavily on volunteers to do much of the work that happens here. There are many positions available for interested volunteers, and each position is important and contributes to the overall care of our wildlife patients! We have the following areas in which volunteers can assist:

  • Wildlife Rehabilitation
  • Wildlife Transport
  • Docent / Outreach
  • Administration
  • Special projects

Please review our Volunteer Information Packet and our Volunteer Application, which detail what volunteering at our facility is like, what is expected of volunteers, and further information about each position. Please read through both, and if interested, complete the application thoroughly. Completed applications can be e-mailed to info@blueridgewildlifectr.org, or mailed to our physical address. Volunteers are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center – we couldn’t do what we do without you!

Opportunities for Youth (< 18 years of age)

Every year we interact with many children and young adults through our educational programs and other events. We are grateful that we inspire so many such that they wish to volunteer at the Center, helping us nurture our patients back to health. Unfortunately, our policy does not allow for volunteers under the age of 18 to work with the wildlife patients.

There are many other ways for young wildlife enthusiasts to support us and help native wildlife. Here are some examples that you can do to help the Center fulfill its mission (parental supervision may be required).
