Looking to join our team? We are always looking for individuals who love to educate and interact with the general public. If events are not your speed, consider becoming a foster for an animal awaiting adoption.
VOLUNTEER WITH US
Volunteer opportunities include:
aiding at educational events;
fostering animals to ensure their daily needs are met;
educating the general public on proper herpetological husbandry;
Whether you are a beginner or a pro, we are here to assist you through the process. Our volunteers make up who we are, and because of them, that makes Archie's Angels into who we are today.
Please understand that completing an application does not guarantee approval. We will schedule a phone conference to follow up with you after your application is submitted. All applicants must be of 18 years or older. If an applicant is not over the age of 18, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to applying.
When you adopt a new animal, we want to ensure that you fully understand the necessities & requirements needed to care for your new companion. When you apply, you will speak with one of our board members to discuss the animal you are interested in and what your knowledge is on that species.
Haven't owned that species before? No worries!
We are here to educate you about herpetological husbandry and what you can expect from the animal you are applying for.
Our education doesn't stop once you bring your new companion home. We are available to answer any questions that develop during your new experience. We want you to know and understand that you are not alone during this process. Our pride will never be more important than our animals, and we want to ensure that they are receiving the best care possible once they leave a foster home. We are an educational resource and always will be. Once an animal is a part of Archie's Angels, they will always be a part of the Archie's Angels family.
As we are not veterinarians ourselves, we will always recommend seeking veterinary advice if your animal is displaying symptoms of illness. We can only speak from experience & scientific case studies, and if we do not have an answer for you, we will find someone who does.
Interested in applying for adoption? We encourage you to reach out to us so we can help you through the process.
Here's what you should research prior to adoption:
Do I understand the husbandry requirements for the species I am interested in?
Do I have the space and appropriately-sized enclosure & resources to house this animal at its full, adult size?
Is this animal allowed to be housed at my current residence? Have I checked my local ordinances to ensure that I am legally allowed to bring this animal into my home?
Do I have a primary care veterinarian chosen for the animal I am interested in?
Am I financially able to provide veterinary care for the entirety of this animal's life?
Have I spoken with others in my home about bringing this animal into our family?
These questions are just a few of many that you should be able to confidently answer when applying for adoption through us. We want to ensure that the adopted animal is placed in the appropriate home, and conducting research prior to adoption is one of the responsibilities you possess as an owner.
