Don't Buy, Don't Breed
Please Adopt a Bird in Need.

Wednesday, April 23, 2014


We also make sure that we have the right people working on the rehabilitation of the birds and give them all the attention they need.  Therefore we need volunteers coming in on a daily basis to take care of their needs and cleaning their cages.

If you cannot come to the Refuge regularly, you can always assist in other ways using your expertise.

  • We publish a Monthly Newsletter and always need articles and assistance in putting it together.
  • There are different needs for Administrative assistance, Fundraising, transport etc.

If you are interested in volunteering, please download and submit the Volunteer Application. Once you have completed the application, call the Refuge at (847) 509-1026 to speak with Karen, our Volunteer Director to schedule and interview.

When you have been accepted as a volunteer, you will be schedueld to come in for orientation and training.  You will also receive a membership to our site in order to see the volunteer schedule or any relevant information.

Our Mission is Simple

To work in joint cooperation with all avian rescue groups to try and eliminate the need for rescue groups by educating the public about aviculture issues.  Until that is accomplished, we will provide a sanctuary for those unfortunate parrots that are in need of a home.
