Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are the foundation of CROW. Approximately 200 volunteers provide support in various areas of the organization helping give wildlife a second chance.  Without their unselfish dedication, CROW would not be able to fulfill its mission. In 2015, volunteers donated 16,675 hours of service. 

Volunteers assist with multiple tasks including the cleaning of rehabilitation enclosures, patient feeding, transportation for injured animals, rescues, releases, gift store and fundraising events to name a few.

All volunteer positions require an application, interview, orientation tour and training.
