Volunteer and Educational Opportunities

We welcome the Pikes Peak Community College Science of Zoo Keeping Technology students to Spirit Keeper Equine. They spend several days each semester working and learning about husbandry and behavior of equids to prepare them for careers at zoos and sanctuaries. These facilities often house a number of equids such as Zebra, Wild Asses, Mongolian Wild Horses, and sometimes domestic horses. Learning to care for horses is helpful in the general care of most ungulates (hoof-stock) both domestic and wild. Examples of odd-toed ungulates (Perissodactyls) are horses, tapirs, and rhinos. Even-toed ungulates (Artiodactyls) are a mammals such as cattle, pigs, giraffes, camels, deer, and hippopotamuses. 

  • At Spirit Keeper students and volunteers get to have contact with horses, goats, and pigs!
  • Starting January 15, 2018 we will be starting an internship program and accepting working interns from Pikes Peak Community College.
