Feb. 3, 2021 (Alpine) -- Veterinary students, animal lovers, high school students getting their volunteer hours in, young and old volunteers are wanted, and needed, at Alpine’s Lions, Tigers & Bears Animal Sanctuary.
“Making bear food, helping with landscaping, and office work” are just a few of the tasks volunteers can assist with, said founder Bobbi Brink during a phone interview.
“Volunteers receive passes, behind-the-scenes access, t-shirts,” said Brink. “We also have two volunteer appreciation events each year,” among other tangible rewards, she added.
The intangible rewards include seeing animals such as lions, tigers and bears on-the-job.
