Are you thinking about a career with animals? Would you like some hands-on experience with a wide variety of animals?

Volunteering with us is a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with our amazing animals. It's a rewarding role and a great confidence booster, which can help to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety.

We offer Work Experience & Volunteer places to students age 16+ but it is also great for those just looking for a hobby or a break from home life!

Duties include cleaning, feeding, creating enrichment, animal interaction, assisting with health checks, environmental checks and general maintenance when needed. 

There may be a chance for volunteers to come out and about to our events with us and the animals too!

We are always looking for volunteers to join our team at Our Animal World so if this is something you might be interested in or want more information then please feel free to get in touch.
