As a volunteer my duties have been to clean up the pens where the wolves or wolf-hybreds are housed. I do this once a week as the duties are shared with other volunteers. We also change the water daily and prepare meals for all the animals. Each volunteer is assigned to work for at least four hours one day per week. Having this schedule means that volunteers have the opportunity to help care for these majestic animals and it helps keep the work load to a level where you can enjoy the work you do as well as the animals you are helping. The animals are very intelligent and they have gotten to know who we are. They great us with howls as we arrive to do our volunteer work and also as we leave for the day. I read some of the books at the local library about wolves and it has been very interesting to be able to see the behaviors these authors wrote about. Another feature is the training volunteers go through before interacting with these animals. This training helps you to better serve the animals in a manner safe for them and you.
