Colorado Reptile Humane Society encourages the participation of volunteers who support our mission: Colorado Reptile Humane Society works to improve the lives of reptiles and amphibians in captivity and in the wild through education and action.

We accomplish our mission by:

  • Providing shelter and proper husbandry while securing loving permanent homes for the animals entrusted to our care
  • Providing captive care education to the public
  • Participating in conservation efforts locally and internationally
  • Engaging in rehabilitation and release of native species.

If you agree with our mission and are willing to be trained, we encourage you to complete this application. We request a $15 contribution at orientation for a volunteer T-shirt and to help defray the cost of administering the program, which leaves more resources available for care of the animals. The information on this form will help us to find the most satisfying and appropriate job for you. Please print your responses. Your first volunteer day at CoRHS will consist of an orientation session and on-the-job interview. If we feel you are a match for CoRHS needs, you will be invited back as an on-going volunteer. All potential volunteers must participate in our training program as part of their work experience.

All fields, unless otherwise specified, are required.
