Our open volunteer days are on Saturday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. If you plan to come out on a Saturday, it is helpful if you drop us an email so we will know to watch for you. We ask that volunteers arrive on time and work a 4-hour shift. If you would like to stay and have lunch with us at 2:00 PM, please bring a vegan "brown bag" lunch (no meat or dairy). After lunch we will show you around the sanctuary and introduce you to some of our monkey residents.

Volunteers who wish to come on days other than Saturday may arrange their schedule with the Jungle Friends carestaff in advance. We are always looking for dependable, regular volunteers! Different shifts are possible, but please understand that we are always working around the monkey care schedule.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteers should be 18 or older. In some cases, special arrangement may be made for younger volunteers if accompanied by a parent or guardian - please notify us in advance to assure that younger volunteers will be able to participate.

What to bring and what to wear

Please print and fill out the Volunteer Application form and bring it with you the first time you volunteer.
Wear closed shoes only, such as sneakers or boots. No flip-flops, sandals or other open shoes.
Wear comfortable clothing for outdoor work, and remember that sanctuary work can be hard on your clothes´┐Ż dirt, stains, and tears can definitely happen, so dress accordingly.
Bring rain gear, jackets/sweatshirts or dress in layers, appropriate to the season.
If you wear a hat or sunglasses, be warned that the monkeys like them, too, and will do their best to steal them from you. Don't wear anything on your head if you're not okay with losing it to the monkeys.
Do not wear jewelry. Again, the monkeys will steal it if they can, and what they steal they get to keep, so don't tempt them!
Bring work gloves, if you have them.
