As a non for profit organization, we here at the rescue, rely heavily on our volunteers. Without them, our facility could not run efficiently. With ever continuing projects, we are looking for able and willing people to donate their time and efforts towards the betterment of this facility and organization.
As a volunteer, you will have the unique opportunity to learn about coyote behavior, ecology, and management as well as proper handling methods of wild canids in a captive environment. While much of the work is physically laborious, we at ICRC, work with assigning our volunteers tasks best suited to their strengths.
We are currently seeking volunteers to help with a variety of different tasks including but not limited to:
- Assisting with fund raising efforts
- Assisting with animal care (feeding, watering, providing supplements)
- Grounds maintenance (mowing, tree pruning, weed eating)
- Enclosure maintenance (hog ringing, reconstruction of enclosures, cleaning enclosures)
- Office work (sending out sponsorship packets, thank you letters, newsletters, etc)
New volunteers should not expect direct physical contact with all of the animals residing at ICRC. It will take a mandatory commitment of several weeks before allowance into enclosures with socialized animals on the property. It is imperative that volunteers have a thorough grasp on handling methods and observing coyote behavior through reading provided literature, completion of a staff provided training program, and demonstrating competency following instructions of ICRC staff.
If you are interested in joining our team and learning about coyotes in a unique environment, contact us for more information and how you can become a part of Indiana Coyote Rescue Center.
