Volunteers needed to help orphaned animals

SAN RAFAEL, CA

WildCare operates a wildlife hospital that receives about 4,000 animals each year and is flooded each spring with baby animals and injured or sick adult animals, officials said. Volunteers are needed to feed, medicate, rehabilitate and release the 200 types of birds, mammals and reptiles brought to the shelter.

Volunteers are asked to work a weekly four-hour shift available at varying times each week through August, organizers said. Training is provided on how to care for the different animals at the hospital.

Volunteer orientations are available as early as Saturday, and pre-registration is required, officials said.
