Humboldt Wildlife Care Center Volunteers


At HWCC, trained volunteers with access to veterinary assistance treat a wide range of injuries, many of which have been directly or indirectly human caused. We treat animals hurt in collisions with vehicles, power lines, fences and windows. Others are caught in traps, fishing line, barbed wire or have been caught by pet cats or dogs.

Each year we treat over 1000 native birds and mammals and receive over 4000 phone calls. Our volunteers help with transportation of injured animals, fund-raising, administrative duties, and with building projects such as flight cages and nesting boxes. Another core group of volunteers work to provide educational presentations within the community.

To volunteer at HWCC please download our volunteer application in Microsoft Word format or Adobe Acrobat format, complete a printed version, and mail it to us. HWCC's mailing address is on the form.
