The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for passionate animal lovers who are willing to help us in our rescue and who are not afraid to get their hands a little dirty once in a while. We are a 501(c)(3) dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused, neglected and otherwise unwanted parrots and other exotic pet birds. We handle approximately 300 cases per year with anywhere from thirty to sixty birds in the rescue at any given time.
This volunteer opportunity is open to people with or without bird experience. Primarily we need help with house ckeeping (cage cleaning, etc.) and socialization/rehabilitation, as well as occasional administrative duties.
Whether you're availabe a few hours a day or a couple hours a month, we'd love to hear from you. Every little bit helps and, believe it or not, even if you're an occasional visitor to the rescue, it helps the birds in ways that might surprise you.
Helping out with these animals can be extremely rewarding and, for the right people, a whole lot of fun. Why don't you join us?
