I started working w/ Wings of Love Birdhaven when my 9yo son was pursuing a Bird project through 4-H. We were looking for places for him to volunteer, and the Rescue wasn't far from us at all. They immediately listed ways that even a 9yo could help: from making toys, to cleaning cages, to baking bread and fundraising. We were thrilled to be able to help, and as an adult volunteer I was able to start volunteering at the Haven itself-- learning to feed and care for the birds while the staff was out of town. I found that the protocols and routine that was set up were incredibly efficient and easy to step into. As I grew in my ability to volunteer, I also learned a lot about the policies in place-- the quarantine building, the testing, the medical treatments, the adoption procedures, and the aviary rules. The experience has made me a better 4-H Bird Project Leader, a better mom-to-a-kid-with-birds, and a person with a greater understanding in general of rescues. Their outreach seminars and daily handling of the birds are incredible and do a lot for the community. Thank you, Bird Haven, for being there not only to help the birds, but to teach us as well!
YOu have alway been only a phone call or text message away to help in any way you can. We are very grateful for your help.
