Transporters transport a bird to a new foster, or pick up an injured bird and deliver it to someone who can help it.
Fosters are needed to keep and care for birds that are eating on their own but are not ready to be released back to the wild. We also need fosters for the birds that have been injured and need a place to heal. This only requires changing the paper, along with the water and giving fresh food every day.
Rehabbers take in babies and care for them until they are ready to go to a foster or aviary. This is the most demanding but also the most rewarding. Depending on the species you take in, hand feeding can be every 1/2 hour to 1 hour in the beginning then every 1 1/2 to 2 hours as the fledglings get ready to be weaned. We support you at every stage with classes, mentors and supplies such as food and syringes for feeding.
Volunteers are needed for fundraising, webpage maintenance, social media, answering our hotline, writing our newsletter, and education.
We rely solely on donations from people like you to operate our organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
This September, make a donation of up to $249 at any Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms checkout. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation.
