We need a lot more volunteers, but the ones we have are great!
Al and Ria are the best! For the last three years they’ve been coming in FIVE nights a week to do the night feeds and meds, and they are both in their late sixties. They give money and all kinds of things that we need.
It’s the same with Val and her husband, Doug. For three years they’ve done night feeds and laundry, have donated a hot water tank, and continue to give many other donations.
Larry and Anne have also been coming in for three years. Larry does ALL the bird housing on his own. Anne comes and cleans the hospital for us.
Maxine and Mike come in and do seeds and nuts, two days every week.
Grant is great. He comes and makes movies, and helps out with the website. Branda and JP come in once a week and give goodies to the birds, and give help with anything else we might need.
We really need to let them know how much they mean to us, and the birds. They mean a lot to me and the other staff and their feathered friends because it’s hard to love so much and make all kinds of friends, and when one passes away it’s hard to let go and move on to help the next bird that needs you to be their friend.
If it wasn’t for Al, Ria, Val, Doug, Anne and Larry, and all of our volunteers, I don’t know how things would get done – they care so much!
