Volunteers have always been a vital part of the ongoing operations and success of Last Chance Forever. In the year 2000, we had 34 unpaid staff and utilized approximately 1486 volunteer hours. Fourteen volunteers provide manpower for rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing of raptors back into the wild, and twenty are involved in our state and national educational endeavors.

Our veterinarian, Dr. Melissa Hill, volunteers over 25 hours per week and also serves as the organization's President.

How To Volunteer

Volunteering at LCF is hard work, and requires a steady commitment, expertise, and training. We offer volunteer opportunities in two areas:

Facility Crew

Our facility volunteers provide some or all (depending on need and training) of the following services at the Last Chance Forever facility in San Antonio:
  • Providing clean, comfortable housing for each raptor (cleaning chambers and hospital cages)
  • Preparing and providing the directed amounts of food and water to raptors.
  • Helping maintain a clean, sterile hospital environment (sweeping, mopping soiled surfaces, doing laundry, stocking supplies and food, washing windows, etc.)
  • Maintaining, repairing, and improving the facilities (may include raking, painting, construction work, etc.)
Administrative or Special Projects Crew

Some of our volunteers bring unique skills to the project, from videography and photography, to web design and maintainance, to public relations and grant writing. If you have a skill you would like to offer, please contact us and find out if we have a need to match.
