Caring for Big Cats 

Lions, tigers, and leopards- oh my! Spend the week volunteering with large, unique cats at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center. Having over 230 big cats at the center, there is no doubt you will have a blast this spring break learning about these creatures and the incredible organization.

Do you consider yourself an animal lover? From working with abandoned dogs to sustaining the facilities and lending a helping hand, you will be sure to have a spring break of a lifetime at Horse Creek.

The Elephant Sanctuary 

Join us as we volunteer at the nation's larget natural habitat refuge for endangered elephants.  We will be working to help build fences, paint walls, and other exciting hands-on service.  No, you can't ride the elephants, but you can help make their home a better place to live!

Peer Leaders: Morgan Gaglianese-Woody and Allison Lenhard
