Procyon Wildlife Fact: Opossum cannot hibernate, which makes winter particularly more challenging for them then other Canadian animals. This also makes extremely cold days like today very dangerous for Opossum with the risk of frost bite to their delicate ears, feet and tails. If you see an Opossum you suspect is suffering from frostbite please give us a call!
We are looking for people to help with all sorts of tasks, from caring for the animals, fundraising and doing site repairs, to cleaning laundry, cutting the grass and writing grants.
Procyon is a charitable organization that does not receive government funding. We rely strictly on donations from private and corporate citizens.
In order to cover our training costs, there is a $25.00 fee. The package includes:
- Free Training
- Training Manual
- Procyon T-Shirt
Volunteers are asked to commit to one four-hour shift per week. Experienced volunteers will work with the new ones in their first shifts to give them guidance.
