The Astoria-based Wildlife Center of the North Coast is looking for volunteers to help rehabilitate orphaned and injured wildlife.  

The nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center is seeking volunteers able to help onsite with animal care and animal-care support teams. The hospital is open seven days a week and has flexible shifts available to work within volunteers’ schedules.  

Because the center relies heavily on volunteers, it asks a sixt-month commitment, as well as working on a regular, weekly basis.  

The Wildlife Center of the North Coast’s mission is to promote compassion, empathy and respect for all life through wildlife rehabilitation, ecological teachings, and wildlife conservation.  

A volunteer orientation is planned for Sept. 21 at the center’s facility in Astoria.
