Since our earliest days, Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary has depended almost entirely on volunteers to maintain and improve the lives of the animals in our care. There are many different ways to volunteer with WSWS depending on your availability, experience, and abilities.

Volunteering with WSWS does not mean you will have opportunities to interact with our wild canid rescues. Very little of what we do here directly involves our animals, but all of our daily work benefits them. Daily tasks involve building and maintenance projects, working in our gift shop, providing tours to our guests, preparing food for our rescues in Wolf Kitchen, and maintaining our sanctuary grounds throughout all seasons. We need volunteers who are willing to devote themselves to specific areas of our sanctuary depending on the particular skills and talents they can provide.

Weekend Warriors

Weekend Warriors are individuals, groups, or scout troops that donate their time for a few hours, a weekend, or longer to help out with specific projects at WSWS. Past projects have included landscaping, campground clean-up, maintenance projects, and assistance at outreach events. Find out more about becoming a Weekend Warrior!

Long-Term Volunteers

Long-term volunteers are picked from a pool of applicants to live on-site for a minimum of 12 weeks (longer is preferable). Volunteers who are applying for our Animal Care department must be able to commit to a 6-month stay at the very least. All applicants must be at least 21 years old. Although we provide food and housing, our long-term volunteers are not paid. To learn more and to apply, click here!
