The Wildcat Sanctuary has a dynamic intern program looking for highly motivated, dedicated, and passionate individuals looking to gain experience in all aspects of animal care/husbandry and running a sanctuary. If you are looking for a challenging yet rewarding experience and provide the ultimate care for our rescued felines, this may be the internship for you. We are an accredited, non-profit sanctuary nestled between the beautiful lakes, fields and forests in Sandstone Minnesota conveniently located between Duluth and the Twin Cities. We are home to over 100 wild cats with a mission to provide a natural sanctuary to our residents and inspire change to end the Captive Wildlife Crisis. Please note: contact is prohibited between the wild cat residents and interns.
Our goal is to provide a rounded experience in the animal industry, teach our interns what it takes to be a caretaker while educating them about the sanctuary field and the captive wildlife crisis. Interns will gain valuable experience from exotic feline husbandry, assisting staff in the building of animal enclosures, diet preparation, enrichment, grounds keeping, emergency response, assisting volunteers while on site and more.
