VOLUNTEER DAY: We’re celebrating the hardworking, tireless team that are relentless in the support of our hospital. For all the late night emergency calls, for all the road trips to all sorts of destinations to collect animals, for the countless hours spent cleaning cages, setting up cages, feeding and assisting our specialist team with treatments. For the hours spent on paperwork, taking photos, writing posts, getting back to members of the public who have dropped off injured wildlife. For all the effort spent round the clock on neonate and critical cases, the late night feeds, the money spent on food and enrichment for our patients. For the hours, care and money taken to print pamphlets, sitting at a stand, educating members of the public and fundraising. This day is for you!
Due to the specialist nature of our clinic, our volunteers are EXTRA special, most having many years of rehabilitation experience, being permitted by GDARD to work with urban wildlife, and many in the process of obtaining vet and vet nursing qualifications. We’re proud to call you our team, and thank each and every one of you for your time, money and care given to our hospital and our patients. Happy International Volunteer Day!
We treat indigenous animals free of charge, relying solely on the donations and support of our community.
