Become a Volunteer

Duties - Volunteers help with animal care, prepare food, clean cages, answer the phone, do dishes, laundry, and many other things that make it possible for the animals to recover and be released.

Qualifications - Anyone over 17 may become a volunteer. Some of our volunteers are college students and others are retirees in their 70's and 80's.

Time Committment - Most volunteers work between 4 and 8 hours one day a week, less in the winter. At the height of baby bird season some volunteers work for a second shift just to help with baby bird care. We ask for a one year committment.

Training - Training is provided by the SWCC.
