The Wild Bird Fund Rehabilitation Center depends on volunteers to help care for injured birds so they can heal and be released. Without volunteers to reliably lend us their enthusiasm, skills, talents, and willingness to learn, we would not exist.

Volunteer Requirements

  • At least 14 years of age
  • Complete application
  • Attend orientation, by invitation only
  • Do at least one 4-hour shift a week
  • Commit for 3 months

Types of Volunteers


Work directly with the birds in the clinic, the waterfowl room and isolation room to clean cages, weigh, medicate, and keep records on injured birds.

Front Desk

Be the face of WBF by greeting visitors, discussing WBF’s mission, soliciting donations, overseeing new patient admission forms and record keeping.


Work offsite on fundraising and corporate outreach, event planning, grant writing, social networking, writing articles, or doing humane education at local schools.
