Parrot Lovers Volunteer Opportunity!
ORGANIZATION: PROJECT PERRY
Please visit the new page to apply.
We need volunteers willing to put in time on weekends. We are looking for people who would like to help out with cleaning, feeding, interacting with the parrots and so much more. It can be messy here so keep that in mind.
General Description - Weekends.
The role of the volunteer caretaker is an important one, ensuring that the parrots are treated properly and receive high-quality care so they may flourish at the Sanctuary. The caretaker must maintain a close working relationship with the Executive Director to ensure they properly complete tasks as assigned by the Executive Director. While these tasks will vary, it may include any combination of the following:
In the morning, aid in the preparation of the fresh fruit and vegetable mix
Prepare food trays and dishes
Clean cages, flighted rooms and food preparation areas
In the morning, follow protocol to ensure food quantities and placements have been followed, as well as daily cleaning and monitoring procedures
Aid in aviary construction (able to lift 50 pounds) (RARE)
Special projects as designated by the Executive Director or Senior Staff (RARE)
Bird experience is wonderful, but not necessary, but a willingness to learn and work hard IS necessary. Occasionally bending and lifting is required. All volunteers will work alongside a member of our staff. We work hard, but we have a great time doing the work. The birds make sure that there aren't any dull moments while volunteers are here. If you are interested in offering a bit of time on weekends, please contact us. We need dependable people that we can count on! K.ProjectPerry @ gmail. com .
Serious inquiries ONLY!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
