Volunteer and Be a Part of TARATARA's heart and soul are its dedicated volunteers — no one in TARA is paid. Volunteers pick up birds, transport them to our vet (all TARA birds undergo complete veterinary assessment and blood work, including psittacosis testing for all, and Beak and Feather Disease testing for cockatoos and greys), conduct parrot care classes, foster birds in their homes, make home visits, mentor adopters, clean our quarantine facility, and do numerous other tasks, such as producing our printed and web materials and staffing the TARA booth at outreach events. (In addition, we could really use help with fund raising and grant writing.)
We always welcome volunteers and invite you to get involved. Call us at 747-0554 for more information.
