Volunteer with us!

Thanks for your interest in volunteering with Gold Country Wildlife Rescue! We are currently recruiting new volunteers. If you’d like to learn more, please:

  1. Watch the video on this page (or here on YouTube), which describes the different types of positions available at GCWR
  2. I’m ready to start, click here!

We host regular new volunteer training every month in the spring.


A Few Important Considerations for Interested Volunteers:

    1. Our WIC recently moved from Loomis, CA to Auburn, CA! We are now located at 11251 B Avenue in Auburn. 

    2. We sometimes have more applicants than there are available positions. We will select volunteers based on the Volunteer Application Form and letter of interest. Experience with animals is not a pre-requisite for volunteering, however, an interest in animals and a professional demeanor are essential.

    3. Our state and federal Fish and Wildlife permits limit the use of minors as volunteers within the Wildlife Intake Center. Currently, all GCWR volunteers must be at least 18 years of age in order to have direct contact with animals.

    4. Volunteers will be required to attend mandatory trainings to ensure human and animal safety; volunteers will also be expected to commit to regular volunteer shifts.

    5. Volunteers are expected to treat others with respect, including fellow volunteers, staff, board members, the public, and animals.

Why Volunteer with GCWR?

  1. Gold Country Wildlife Rescue t-shirt and volunteer nametag

  3. Opportunities to work closely with animals and make a difference in their lives

  6. Fun and new friends!
