Take this amazing opportunity to care for wolves and wolf-dogs at our Wolf Care California Project based in the Los Padres National forest in Ventura County, CA just an hour and a half away from the City of Los Angeles! 

Have a feel of living off the grid while assisting with the daily routines involved in caring, grooming and nurturing of these amazing creatures!

Become a volunteer now and assist at the sanctuary that is located on 20 acres of land and is considered home to a range of displaced, unwanted, and un-releasable captive-bred animals such as; wolves, wolf-dogs, birds and horses! This project is in dire need of your help all year round and the work with the animals on the center is physically demanding and is by no means an ‘easy holiday option’!

The minimum duration of stay is 6 weeks with a maximum duration of 12 weeks, this length of time gives you the opportunity to fully grasp the project’s routine and it also gives the animals a chance to get acquainted with you!


This Is Why

  • Assist with the daily activities at wolf rescue and care center and get involved with these mysterious yet amazing creatures!
  • Expand your knowledge about the care and habits of wolves, wolf-dogs, birds and horses.
  • Raise awareness by educating the public.
  • Live & volunteer for 4 - 12 weeks off the grid surrounded by nature.


Your main tasks will mainly consist out of the following but are not limited to:

  • Cage cleaning
  • Maintenance of Habitat/Enclosures.
