Join Midwest Avian Adoption & Rescue Services (www.maars.org), the midwest's largest parrot rescue and sanctuary organization specializing in the care and rehabilitation of parrots.

If you are a parrot lover or just interested in learning more about these amazing animals, consider volunteering at MAARS. We offer the unique opportunity to work with one of the largest non-breeding flocks in the United States. On any given day, approximately, 85 birds - Lovebirds to Macaws, Cockatiels to Cockatoos, and everything in between - call the MAARS shelter, The Landing, in Saint Paul, MN home.

Your help is needed to provide all the day-to-day care for the MAARS flock, e.g. feeding and cleaning cages, and for the facility, e.g. vacuuming and scrubbing walls.

All volunteers also have the opportunity to interact with the birds, and to provide for their socialization and intellectual stimulation.

Volunteers joining a Flock Care Crew are expected to work a regular four-hour shift, e.g. Monday AM or Thursday PM, each week and make a one-year commitment.

More information and a volunteer application can be found here: https://www.maars.org/our-volunteers/
