DescriptionOur WRR Animal Care Apprentices have a minimum of one year experience working with wildlife (rehabilitation experience preferred). This position involves substantial animal husbandry responsibilities, limited basic medical work, administrative duties (record keeping and telephone work), and fieldwork involving rescues, releases and transportation of animals. This opportunity is appropriate for individuals who have the potential to become entry-level animal caretakers but lack substantial experience in working with animals.
Established in 1977, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation receives over 7,000 wild animals per year for rehabilitation and release as well as providing permanent sanctuary for more than 600 resident non-releasable indigenous wildlife, exotic wildlife (large mammals, primates, reptiles and birds) and farm animals. Wildlife Rescue is located on 212 acres in beautiful Texas Hill Country, near Austin and San Antonio.
Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation has a limited number of openings for animal care apprenticeships. The apprenticeship is year long commitment, and offers advancements throughout the program to develop, grow, and become peer leaders. This opportunity is appropriate for individuals who have the potential to become entry-level animal caretakers but lack substantial experience in working with animals. A small monthly stipend is provided with onsite housing.
