SPCA Baby Bird Feeding Season

Volunteers Needed!

The SPCA Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center is seeking volunteers (ages 16 yrs. & up), who would like to assist with our very busy baby bird season. The season typically runs from April through September. Volunteer shifts are available from 8:00 am to 6:00 p.m. seven days a week.

Volunteers are utilized to assist with a variety of wildlife tasks. Our volunteer opportunities are divided into three skill levels and range from the care and feeding of baby birds to more advanced tasks such as administering medications and restraint of large mammals and raptors. Training is provided to SPCA volunteers by our Wildlife Center staff.

Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center

Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

The SPCA of Monterey County Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center was established in 1982 and is responsible for taking in and rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife. Whenever possible, these animals are released back into the wild. Veterinary services are donated for the rehabilitated animals as well as their ongoing care.

The Wildlife Center operates as a hospital and rehabilitation center for indigenous wildlife of Monterey County. It operates with permits from the California Department of Fish and Game and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. However, it receives no funding from these agencies. All operation funds are received through donations, memberships, grants and auxiliaries.

Most of the 3,000 plus wild animals we receive are victims of human intervention such as habitat destruction, trapping entanglement, poisoning, injuries from vehicles, domestic animals or malicious harassment and by people who adopt or feed wildlife. The center also provides a Wildlife Hotline used by hundreds of Monterey County residents who call for advice each year on their wildlife concerns and problems.
