Dispatch is a critical component of fulfilling the WIN mission. As with all WIN roles, Dispatchers are volunteers committed to helping wildlife.
Here’s how it works:
Members of the public call the WIN Hotline to report injured, sick or orphaned wild animals.
Dispatchers receive the information, ensure that it is appropriate for WIN. If a situation warrants a WIN volunteer response, the Dispatcher publishes an alert via the WIN mobile application.
WIN responds to most animal emergencies except those involving adult deer (over 30 pounds), bears, bobcats, fishers, otters or venomous snakes.
WIN Dispatch is available 7-days per week from 8am to 8pm. Shifts are typically 2 hours in duration. WIN will work with you to select a shift that meets your schedule.
Dispatchers receive training about WIN, telephone etiquette and using the mobile application.
Dispatchers use their own mobile devices and can work from any location with adequate cell and internet coverage.
