Can you help transport injured or orphaned wild birds to licensed NJ wild avian (bird) rehabilitators for the Associated Humane Societies animal shelters? Transports are made as needed & volunteers sign up to be on-call & committed for specific days to transport. Spring thru Fall are especially busy times. We are avian ambulance drivers. We pick up the contained birds & drive them directly to the rehabilitation center, usually The Raptor Trust in Millington NJ. We do not have the radio on while driving the birds nor pause for selfies nor to show the stressed bird to anyone. VBTB is the lifeline to recovery for these birds!
