Details: Shy Wolf Sanctuary, Education and Experience Center is a unique facility providing santuary to unwanted and neglected exotic animals. Since these animals can not be released into the wild the majority of them make our sanctuary their "forever home". Our focus is not only to care for the animals but to educate and offer the community an understanding and appreciation for animals and how they ours have come to be in the situation which they are. Volunteers are encouraged to interact with the resident animals while learning about them, each of them are unique in their own way.
Job Description: Shy Wolf Sanctuary is a Florida nonprofit 501-C-3 that needs assistance in various areas of operational aspects including but not limited to: animal care, fundraising, grants, habitat development, educational program development, public relations, and marketing. A chance to think outside the box exists in helping us move to the next level. We are currently in the beginning phases of creating a "green facility" to move to so we may expand our rescue efforts. With this said, a lot of help is needed in engineering, planning and development, public relations, fundraising, and much more!
