Since 1982, Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center has been dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of orphaned, injured and sick wildlife. We rely on volunteers to help provide quality care to thousands of wild birds and mammals each year at our facility in Longmont.
Most of our volunteers work directly with the wild animals, while others provide invaluable assistance with many other essential tasks.
Below are the volunteer positions we have available.
Animal care volunteers are responsible for feeding, cleaning, and general care of the wildlife admitted to Greenwood. Specific duties include food preparation, hand feeding baby wildlife, cleaning cages, maintaining a clean environment, refreshing food and water in outdoor enclosures, and other duties as specified by staff supervisors.
We require that Animal Care Volunteers commit to one regular 5-hour shift per week for a period of 6 months minimum.
You cannot commit to the regular 5-hour shift per week and/or to the 6 months enrollment period? Our M.I.C.E. team provides more flexibility for volunteers who want to donate their time to help the animals and the staff at Greenwood.
Greenwood Wildlife accepts individuals ages 18 and older who need to complete court-ordered community service. To see if you are meeting our requirements, get more details and schedule your shifts, please call our front desk between 9AM and 4PM: 303-823-8455

As a Fundraising & Special Events volunteer, you will learn behind the scenes logistics of planning fundraising events and potentially volunteer at the events. It is a fun opportunity, and you’re directly helping to raise funds for Greenwood and awareness of its mission.
