In this position you work alongside our animal care staff, interns and students working in closer proximity to the animals. As such, strict adherence to safety precautions and following direction from KIC are a must and violating such may result in immediate termination. *These are carnivores, and a lapse in focus, safety or following instructions could result in injury or death for humans and/or animals. Work includes, but is not limited to, cleaning and maintenance of animal housing exhibit spaces and nearby grounds, food preparation for animals’ meals, and accurate and timely record keeping each day. This can be physically arduous work and you must be able to lift 50 pounds, stand or be on your feet for long periods of time, and work outdoors in all types/seasons of weather. As an Animal Care Volunteer, you have slightly less public interaction, and this job tends to be more physically demanding.
