This organization has been life changing for me, I have been a regular volunteer for going on 4 years now, I volunteer 2-3 days a week currently. I started out cleaning cages and learning the specific diets of local wildlife, I am now involved in medical work including physical exams, fluid injections, performing and observing surgeries, performing necropsies on various species, doing x-rays at a veterinary clinic, bandaging wounds, etc etc...The one on one hands on experience is really invaluable. I've gained experience with lots of wild animals that people rarely even see up close, including different species of owls, hawks, songbirds, mammals and reptiles! The volunteer work at this organization is very rewarding, the nurturing and releasing of animals back into the wild is nothing short of AMAZING. I cant say enough about Kritter Inc.

From a shy, awkward kid her volunteer time has truly transpired her into a determined, self-motivating take charge individual. She has grown tremendously through her volunteer time with Kritter, Inc. We depend on her more and more everyday and I am so proud of her accomplishments. Just a few hours a week will open your eyes to a world very few people can share - come out and join us today - as for the cold water, well, more fundraising events might just deliver a hot water tank - keep the donations coming - we are reaching out on-line for a larger impact to the work we do for saving wildlife -

I'm a regular volunteer with Kritter, Inc and have immensley enjoyed my experiences at the sanctuary. We've been able to work with a variety of native animals, and have a successful release rate. I was able to release a screech owl that had recovered from an eye injury, and I was hooked! Being able to release an animal that was previously so badly hurt is incredibly rewarding. Kritter, Inc does a wonderful service for Bay County and I plan to continue participating with such a needed center.

I helped take care of the regular animals while the principal caretakers were involved with the oiled birds rescued from the BP oil spill, and I found the sanctuary to be well-organized, clean, and compassionale. Having someone who will take on this demanding role is a tremendous benefit to the people and the animals of a community.

As a volunteer I see first hand the time, dedication and passion our Director Lisa Mabry pours into this nonprofit sanctuary. She performs the necessary tasks and treatments with a calm, deliberate and organized demeanor. She is incredibly organized, as observed when viewing the grounds or when referring to administrative duties performed.
