Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Urban Safari Rescue Society. Volunteers mean everything to us. We can’t carry on our important work without you.

Do you love animals and people?

Are you interested in making a difference to animals and the public’s awareness of them? Join our diverse team of active and enthusiastic like-minded people. Learn to educate and inspire visitors, be part of our animal conservation efforts, learn to care for these amazing rescued exotic animals from around the world, have fun in a unique atmosphere, and make new friends.

We have many volunteer opportunities and flexible times. Whether you have a few hours a week or are looking for more, we have a place for you. 

If you are willing to learn, be part of the team, and get dirty, we will train you.

NOTE: Volunteers must be fully vaccinated and be able to show proof. Face masks are mandatory at all times.

Secondary School Volunteer Hours

Would you like to volunteer at a rescued animal facility to get the volunteer hours you need to graduate? Be part of a fun team and learn about the animals we care for. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Volunteer Opportunities

Some opportunities to volunteer include:

  • Cleaning cages and general cleaning around the centre

Experience is not necessary but very helpful for some volunteer roles.

Volunteers are all required to fill out a volunteer application and have an interview.

Adult volunteers are encouraged to become members in Urban Safari Rescue Society.
