PrideRock - Volunteer

"... What we have enjoyed, we can never lose ... all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."

There are always volunteer opportunities at PrideRock and you they play an important role in our mission of providing the best possible environment for our cats. If you don‘t mind hard, dirty work in extreme weather conditions, and love big cats, then this is the place for you. There are ways to get involved both at the facility and off-site. Also please note you must be at least l8 years old and be able to commit to at least two days of volunteering a month. Most of the volunteers work on Saturdays, but there may be times available through the week depending on scheduling.

On-site duties will include performing basic grounds keeping/maintenance functions as they relate to the general upkeep and cleanliness of the refuge including mowing, planting and landscaping, watering new and existing plants, shoveling, seasonal clean-up, i.e. raking in the fall, spring clean-up, etc. Ongoing maintenance and repair of equipment, structures, and tools, if you have the skills.

Detail cleaning of the tool shed, animal food prep area, animal enclosures, and dens. Making sure each enclosure has some form of enrichment and something for the cat to play with before you leave. Cleaning and bleaching of all the carts at the end of the day.

If there at feeding time, you will assist in preparation of meals for the cats, feeding of the cats, washing of the food pans, and clean-up of the food prep area.

Depending on whether or not habitat construction is being done, volunteers may help in construction including manual labor, ladder work, using tools and more.

Off-site duties are available for people to address thank you cards, people with marketing and public relations skills, fundraising, welding, construction, etc. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
