We love our Volunteers!
At the Sanctuary, we have several devoted volunteers that the staff and interns are so thankful for! We appreciate them so much and probably don’t show it or tell them enough.
Volunteers help with everything at the Sanctuary from doing the dirty work, such as washing endless dishes, helping clean the nutrition center, and even laundry. Our volunteers also do a variety of other tasks such as helping the interns sort through donated produce, helping feed bears, taking pictures for our gift shop, giving tours, and even gardening and helping make the Sanctuary look nice. Lately our volunteers have helped tremendously with mowing and weed-eating which we are so thankful for, especially in this heat! They have planted new flowers in our previously empty flower pots to help make our sanctuary look more presentable to the public. Much more takes place here than just feeding and cleaning habitats. By volunteering at IEAS, there’s always something new to learn.
Volunteering at IEAS is a unique and rewarding experience. Our volunteers love helping out with the daily chores because they can work while enjoying the company of our exotic animals. If you are interested in volunteering please contact the sanctuary at (940) 433-5091.
Thank you so much volunteers! We wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
