ORGANIZATION: Carolina Waterfowl Rescue

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue doesn't just take in wild birds, we also take in domestics. Some of these birds were dropped off at a local park or pond without any way to defend themselves from predators. Some babies are dumped in trashcans, others come from hoarders. We take them in, get them healthy again and adopt them out to qualified loving individuals.

Animals that get adopted include pekin ducks, muscovy ducks, various type of domestic geese, chickens, etc....

We are looking for someone who will review adoption applications, talk with prospective adoptive families and evaluate property for suitability (in person or through photos). This careful screening process is very important to ensure our adopters have the right housing, water source, and safe properties these birds need. The volunteer would need to be able to come out to the rescue in Indian trail once or twice a month to take pictures of the birds that need homes, post them on Petfinder, and be able to respond to potential adopters via email. Training is provided. This is a very rewarding volunteer job - to see injured and abandoned birds enjoying their new homes is wonderful.

Please contact us for more information and how you can help save lives.
