Papagayo (PRH) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), Georgia Department of Agriculture inspected rescue, supporting the well-being of parrots through rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, and rehoming. A majority of Americans own pets, primarily dogs and cats, but parrots make-up the third-largest pet community. However, hundreds of thousands of mass-marketed birds are now displaced each year because neither these birds nor their owners are properly prepared for success. A very sad fact is that 85% of parrots are resold, given away, or abandoned within 2 years of being purchased, and yet many parrots live 40 - 80 years. Parrot Rescues are as vital as dog and cat rescues but are often overlooked by charitable organizations and people looking for an alternative to buying.
Papayago Rescue House, serving the greater Atlanta, GA area, is seeking 2 grant writers with non-profit grant writing experience to locate and complete grant applications as remote contributors. This is a volunteer position - no salary. Federal land grant application experience is desired but not necessary. Strong written and communication skills required.
