If you would like to help raise funds for the medical care of animals in distress and enjoy our beautiful ocean at the same time, then volunteering might be the right choice for you! We have four volunteer positions currently available listed below. Since we are a 501(c)(3) public charity, volunteer hours can count towards a graduate degree nonprofit practicum or internship / externship program as we are affiliated with many of the Universities in the USA. We also offer court-ordered community service hours.

Why not help save lives and enjoy the ocean at the same time…?!
