M.I.C.E. Team Volunteers

(Most Important Care & Enrichment Team)

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 ages 18 and older who want to donate their time to help the animals and the staff at Greenwood.  M.I.C.E. team members have no direct contact with the animals, but play an essential role in keeping our rehabilitation center running smoothly. Cleaning animal cages/enclosures, helping with food preparation, doing laundry, washing dishes, and ensuring the general cleanliness and organization of our facility is a rewarding way to help Greenwood and your local wildlife! M.I.C.E. Team volunteers are normally scheduled from 10 am to 2 pm, any day of the week.

  • Appreciation of all wild animals
  • A clear understanding of Greenwood’s mission
  • Willingness to get hands dirty
  • Patience and ability to communicate and work with others
  • 2 to 4 hours spent standing, walking, bending, twisting, and lifting
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Must be proficient in English to volunteer at the center


  • Applicants must be 18+
  • Commit to 2-4 hours per week
  • A reliable mode of transportation; there is no public service near the center
  • Provide proof of up-to-date tetanus vaccination (COVID vaccination strongly recommended)
  • Up-to-date pre-exposure rabies vaccination is required to work within our rabies vector areas
  • A donation of $35 will be requested to help fund the volunteer program
