Thank you for your interest in volunteering with PEARL. As an all-volunteer run organization, our volunteers are constantly on the move and we are always looking for additional help! We could not do what we do for birds without the tireless dedication of our volunteers and foster families. PEARL Parrot Rescue is a foster-based organization and we do not have a facility. All of our birds are in private homes, and because of this, we do not have many opportunities for our volunteers to work with birds. If you are interested in working with birds directly, we encourage you to consider fostering.
Outside of fostering, we mostly rely on our volunteers for community outreach - attending events, facilitating fundraisers and helping to spread awareness of PEARL's mission. Once we get to know our volunteers, there are additional opportunities available, such as assisting with marketing, bird or cage pick-ups, and vet trips.
We hope that you will join us in our mission to help parrots in need in the Pittsburgh area and educate the community on parrot care. The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete the form below!
