At any given time Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary has approximately 75 animals in their care that have come to them through an illegal situation including domestication of wild animals, or because of an injury.
Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary has a volunteer program offering accommodations, meals and optional introductory Spanish language classes. A 1-week, all-inclusive stay is currently USD $445 and 4 weeks is only $930! The Spanish course is an additional $100 for a week, or $240 for 3 weeks (24 hours of classes).
So what will you do as a volunteer at Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary? Well, you have to make a commitment of a 7-hour day, 5 days per week where you'll start by cleaning cages, doing grounds work and mixing food, along with feeding animals and nursing others back to health.
The volunteer experience will no doubt change participants forever, plus it's wonderful for the animals and looks great on any resume.
