Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help build a habitat for a rescued animal....after they have been moved you can help feed and care for them

Programs: Rescued animals at Peace River Refuge & Ranch are provided with high quality care in a safe, peaceful environment. Through a strong international internship and volunteer program, students in the field of animal conservation learn ways to properly care for wild animals in a safe and humane manner. During their participation in our programs, they gain firsthand experience in ways to provide the animals with high quality and enriching lifetime care. Through public speaking, semi-monthly guided educational tours of the sanctuary and other community outreach programs, Peace River Refuge & Ranch inspires others to help break the pattern of indifference toward the living creatures we share this planet with.

Mission:
Peace River Refuge & Ranch, founded in 1998, grew out of the need to find lifetime care for the ever-increasing number of wild animals in captivity living in substandard conditions or victims of misguided attempts to make them into pets. Peace River Refuge & Ranch (Forest Animal Rescue) is comprised of volunteers who assist in the rescue of non-releasable wild animals throughout the United States and are dedicated to their lifetime care. We participate in nationwide networking of accredited sanctuaries, assisting authorities in locating qualified sanctuaries in other parts of the country. Additionally, a great deal of our efforts are directed toward educating the public about the issues surrounding wild animals in captivity as well as their wild counterparts. Our ultimate goal is to avoid the need to have wild animal sanctuaries by educating people on the complicated social and physical needs of these animals and teaching appreciation of the animals in their native environment.
Results:
Over 150 non-releasable wild animals are receiving lifetime care at the sanctuary

I brought my family there for Christmas to see all of the animals receive their presents. It was amazing. The animals were just so happy and it was as if they were in their own environments. I worked with Lisa and Kurt when I was at Pelican Man years ago when we had animals that we couldn't keep ... more »
