  • Interested in Becoming a Volunteer?

    Volunteers must be a minimum 19 years of age and clear a criminal records check.

    Volunteer shifts are between 2-4 hours weekly or bi-weekly.

    An initial training period of approximately 4 shifts is provided and reviewed upon completion.

    Responsibilities include Bird and Rat care and general facility cleaning.

    SORCO provides a friendly, safe and hygienic working environment for our volunteers. Although working with wildlife can be most rewarding, at times it can also be stressful and emotional.

    • Cleaning cages daily
    • Charting records in each bird’s file
