Medically Fragile Birds

Not all of the birds that Exotic Bird Rescue cares for are adoptable, some have medical issues that prevent them from being adoptable.

Help us fulfill our mission

EBR is run entirely by volunteers who help the organization run smoothly and efficiently. We invite anyone interested in lending a hand to fill out our Volunteer Application form to be matched with a role that suits you. We are always in need of additional foster homes for the birds we take in, but we understand that not everyone is prepared to become a foster home - there are still ways you can help! We need people to help transport birds to and from foster homes and veterinarian visits. We need people to host and set up regular adoption events (currently canceled due to COVID-19), as well as power washing cages and building toys. We can also use volunteers experienced with fundraising and grant writing.
