I am writing to invite your students to apply for an exciting internship opportunity with Humane Animal Rescue’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. As the second largest rehabilitation center in Pennsylvania, we admit over 4,200 animals of over 150 different native PA Specie annually and holds over 20 State and Federal Permits.
Our internship program is designed for students studying biology or environmental sciences. Students will be provided with a well-rounded program in which they will have the opportunity to observe and assist our Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators with examinations, treatments, and medication distribution. Daily work will be heavily focused on animal husbandry, supportive care, and general preparation for releasing healthy animals to their native habitats.
We pride ourselves in offering unique hands-on experiences to all students in our program. No two days are alike, so to ensure each student is getting the most out of their time at our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, we provide a small curriculum with assignments due every two weeks for the duration of the internship.
While previous experience is a bonus, this program is also great for entry level students. The practical experiences gained will help round out your student’s education and assist them in their future careers.

About Humane Animal Rescue
Humane Animal Rescue is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in Pennsylvania, providing services to tens of thousands of animals each year at our two shelters and wildlife rehabilitation center. Formed in 2017, Humane Animal Rescue is the result of a merger between the Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (established in 1909) and Western Pennsylvania Humane Society (established in 1874), each with independently rich histories of serving our community’s animals in need. Our new organization continues the legacies of our predecessors with the task of providing enhanced services to domestic and wild animals alike, while bringing greater efficiency in animal care processes, staff training, and cutting-edge practices to one cohesive organization.
