MARS provides many opportunities for volunteers to learn by doing:
Caregivers receive on-site training to provide hands-on wildlife care: rescue, treatment, feeding and, of course, cleaning. A time commitment of four hours per week is required.
There are also many opportunities to help wildlife without actually having to handle them:
As a non-profit society, MARS is dependent on donations and fundraising efforts. We host booths at many community events and require personable, outgoing Volunteers to help sell MARS Raffle Tickets and provide information to the public.
