As a farmed animal sanctuary we have both mammal and bird residents who need excellent care. As our flock has grown, and the need for placement is great, we are looking for a bird loving human to oversee the care of our sanctuary bird residents.
This person should be open minded, care deeply about animal/bird welfare, a lover of all things avian, and have the ability to come to the sanctuary at least four times per week for an hour to two per visit.
Our ideal avian expert or lover (we can teach you if you love birds and have time but don't have a lot of experience), will also coordinate with our sanctuary manager and other volunteers regarding daily care of the birds and their habitat.
To start, this is a volunteer position that could be come a part-time paid position in the future.
When you come to the sanctuary is flexible as long as it is during daylight hours and at least one time per week when the sanctuary manager or executive director are here to coordinate care with.
Additional responsibilities may include taking a bird to the vet, coming to assess a bird that doesn't seem to be doing well, providing extra care for birds who come in with physical, emotional, or health issues that must be addressed before integrating in to the flock.
If this sounds like your dream come true, get in touch and come out for a tour to see if One Heart Wild is good fit for you.
