As an entirely volunteer run organization, STAR wouldn’t exist without volunteers. We are always searching for dedicated bird lovers to volunteer in a variety of roles. Whether you’re tech savvy, a social media guru, enjoy clerical work, love being with people, or just love parrots, we’ve got a spot for you! Thanks to the internet, many of our volunteer opportunities are virtual, therefore, being local is not a requirement for many of our volunteer teams.

Our fosters are the heart and soul of our organization. We match our foster homes with the experience and comfort level of each volunteer, ensuring that every bird, from a budgie to a macaw, is coupled with the perfect home for their individual needs. Experience is not necessary to foster most smaller species. STAR provides training, support & resources to all fosters. Thanks to generous donations by the public, we are able to provide the cage and cover all medical care costs.
