DCHS's Wildlife Center takes in over 3,800 ill, injured or orphaned wild animals every year with the goal of treating and releasing healthy animals back to their natural habitats. Volunteers help us with everything from direct animal care and answering phone calls to cage construction and maintenance. If working with wildlife interests you consider one of these positions.
