The PRC operates 365 days a year and volunteer help is welcomed year round. Our website will help familiarize you with our history and mission, and give you some sense of the vital role that volunteers play in our day-to-day operations. We have many different types of volunteers, so take a look to see what category best fits you as a potential volunteer at the Primate Rescue Center!
Our animal care volunteers are a vital part of our daily routine at the sanctuary. Depending on your level of time commitment, as a volunteer you may have the opportunity to assist caregivers with many daily tasks such as food preparation, enrichment and cleaning.
Off-Site Volunteers are extremely important to the Primate Rescue Center. We have a great Off-Site Volunteers Packet with tasty recipes, fun enrichment ideas and exciting fund-raising challenges that you can work on from your own home! Off-site Volunteers must coordinate with the Volunteer Coordinator when working on any off-site project.
Each Spring the PRC holds a members-only event at which volunteers are needed to assist in a multitude of tasks, such as merchandise sales, silent auction, information booth, raffle ticket sales, children’s games, face painting, registration of guests, photography and educating the public about the sanctuary and its residents. We depend on volunteer support to help this event run smoothly. We also hold various smaller fund-raising and educational events throughout the year.
The PRC welcomes the help of professionals in a number of fields to offer up their expertise. Landscapers, Arborists, Artists, Painters, Carpenters, Clerical Workers, Financial Advisors, Accountants, Journalist, Organizers, Housekeepers, etc. can all make a difference at the Primate Rescue Center by providing their skills to help us better the lives of our residents.
