Rescue Volunteers Needed
2 people are interested
We need volunteers of all shapes and sizes! There are many different ways you can volunteer. Whether you want to work hands on or help run the rescue effort, there is something for everyone.
Working on site means you work weekly shift/s at the rescue feeding the birds, cleaning cages and helping with general avian husbandry of resident birds that live here. You can work as little as one 4 hour shift a week, or commit to more shifts if you want to learn how to care for clinic/rehab patients as well. The minimum shift required is once a week, but there is no limit on how many shifts you can work and no glass ceiling as to the knowledge available, the more you come, the more you learn.
Transports are one of the most critical parts of rescuing birds. If you choose to be on the transport list, you will be contacted when there is a bird in your area that needs to be picked up and brought to the Skywatch Clinic. No special training or skills are required, most of the time we just need the bird kept in a box or a safe place off the streets so it can be confined until you bring it in.
Much like an ambulance dispatcher, you will be on a hotline that handles calls about injured birds. You would have a set shift time where you would need to be available to take phone calls and then arrange for a transporter to pick up a bird and deliver it to the rescue. You would perform this task from your home.
Volunteers must be 18 or older.
