Harmony depends on volunteers and we are always looking to grow our team of awesome people. Here's what you can expect:

    • A fulfilling experience! We want your time at Harmony to be rewarding and educational.

    • Opportunities to expand your knowledge about wildlife and skills in a variety of wildlife care and rehabilitation areas.

    • A non-discriminatory environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, regardless of race, religion, national or regional origin, age, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.

    • A safe work environment.

    • To be thanked and recognized for your time, effort, and/or materials donated to Harmony.

    • Orientation and proper training. If you feel you aren’t ready to perform an assigned task without additional training or support from staff, please let us know. We are here for you and are happy to provide additional guidance until you feel comfortable performing a task, working with an animal, etc.

Meet Peggy, Harmony's Volunteer Director

I'm Peggy Reiling, and am a Licensed Wildlife Rehabber and Harmony's Volunteer Director.

I've been involved in wildlife rehab since 2010 when I became an animal caretaker volunteer at Willowbrook Wildlife in Glen Ellyn, IL. In 2014, I continued working with wildlife and nature at The Chattahoochee Nature Center in GA, specializing in raptors, reptiles, and amphibians.
