Our volunteers are passionate about their work and excited to help with different tasks around our facility. 

The Volunteer Experience

We make a commitment to our animal care volunteer interns and practicum students, providing them with an intensive learning experience while also maintaining a safe and responsible environment for the animals we care for.

  • Many of our full-time staff began with us as volunteers.
  • Because of the nature of our work, we are unable to accept volunteers for short periods of time.
  • Individuals who can commit to the organization long term and are willing to be trained can choose their volunteer schedule.


Because we have a small staff, we count on volunteers to help everything run smoothly—especially on busy days. IDC could not accomplish all that we do without the remarkable contribution of time, effort, and love of our volunteers. 


Activities that volunteers do include:

Giving tours 

Organizing barbecues 

Answering the phones 


Fundraising and events

Helping with auctions

Gardening around the property

Helping with office maintenance

Assisting our customers in the gift shop

The reward you get from being a volunteer at IDC cannot be put into words. I have been a volunteer for 13 years and I’m never leaving! It’s the happiest place on earth!”
