We’re happy to announce and welcome 2 new volunteers to the PRC’s On-Site Animal Care Volunteer Team!

Kirsten Perkins, who works at Marriott in Lexington and also volunteers for the Louisville Zoo, began volunteering in August 2016 and joins us on Monday mornings.

Maire O’Malley, former PRC summer 2016 intern, has decided to stay on as a volunteer with us on Friday afternoons as she finishes up her degree in Animal Science at UK.

We are so thrilled to have Kirsten and Maire become a part of the On-Site Animal Care Volunteer Program, and look forward to seeing them each week.

Our On-Site Animal Care Volunteers are a vital part of our daily routine at the sanctuary, assisting care staff with food preparation, enrichment, and cleaning. Volunteers have the opportunity to observe primate behavior, interact with primates from a safe distance, and gain the satisfaction of knowing they are improving the lives of chimps and monkeys!

If you are interested in applying for a volunteer position at the Primate Rescue Center, I encourage you to check out the Volunteering Options on our website.
