Animal caretaker (m/f)
We are a small animal meadow which is located on the same site as the Watertoren playground in the Overvecht district. The venue is located in the Watertoren park and has been run entirely by volunteers since the municipality wanted to close it 4 years ago. The petting zoo is home to various sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs.
Petting zoo 'de Watertoren' is looking for enthusiastic people who love animals and wish to help keep this fantastic local venue going.
Come and join our team!
Caring and feeding involves taking care of the animals independently (after having been shown what to do once or twice). Activities include feeding, sweeping, mucking out etc.
This will take 2 to 3 hours and in principle could take place at any time of day, but mornings are preferable. You can decide for yourself how often to volunteer, but twice a month is the minimum to keep you up to date with what is going on. We also organise a drinks party for the team every now and then, which you are welcome to attend if you wish.
Are you at least 16 years old and interested in this role, or do you have any questions? Just send us an email! Parents with children are also very welcome.
You can also speak to us or come in if you see us working.
