Genesis Zoological is a non profit 501(C)(3) Tax exempt Wildlife
Rescue Center. We have been in operation in Florida since 1989. The
main function of the center is to rescue wildlife and facilitate there
release or permanent care. This includes the rehabilitation and
release of native wildlife as well as the permanent care of exotic and
non-releasable animals. The community brings us there un-wanted,
injured and nuisance wildlife. We are a center that is run strictly by
donations and volunteers. All(%100) of the donations received are
used for the animals.
Volunteer: With the center being run by volunteers, they are
always needed. There are many things a person can do including
clean up, lawn maintenance, building & facility maintenance, feeding
and administrative tasks. There are two types of volunteers, long term
and short term. Everyone starts as a short term volunteer. This would
also include Community service people. Duties include Maintenance,
cleaning, greeting, painting, promotions, print media. No direct
contact or feeding of most of the animals. Long term volunteers have
come weekly on a regular basis for many months. This has enabled
them to get use to the procedures and allows the director to develop
a certain amount of trust. Trust is the main factor to becoming a long
term volunteer. This must be developed with the animals that you will
be caring for and only comes with time. Once this has been
established you will be feeding/cleaning the animals and taking care
of there needs. Volunteer work can even be done from home or work.
It takes minimal time from your life but can help in many ways.
Humans have made the biggest negative impact on these animals
native habitat, so without the help from volunteers, humans can't begin
to make things better. Volunteer Application
