There are a number of volunteering opportunities. We are always looking for people to help with fostering. Or just spreading the word about RICA.
If you live in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, we organize "Meet and Greets" at various pet stores and other places. These events are designed to help educate the public about the care of iguanas and promote adoption.

All help is greatly appreciated!
Fundraiser. We all have great ideas for fundraising.
The person in charge of fundraising would follow
up on ideas. Such as calling around to find the best
pricing on items we are thinking of using to make
something with. Example would be the buttons we
are thinking of making. Also, this person will
network with other rescues, societies, etc., that
are having fundraising events. Other duties will be
researching companies, organizations, foundations,
etc., that are willing to give grants to non-profits.
Adoption Counselor. This person will guide the
potential adopter throughout the process. The
A.C. will make sure the adopter has all the info
on the F-E-L-T-S of iguana care. They will also
explain the adoption process and issues like
permits, necropsy, a lost ig, cage building
resources, etc. This person will be responsible
for screening any potential adopter to make
sure they are even suitable for being an adopter.
