The construction of the rescue building has been slow at best. John and Jeanne have been doing much of the work themselves since the budget is very limited (and out of their pockets) and needless to say, its been slow going. To make matters worse, the court at their current location is now giving them a two week deadline to get all birds out of their house or face civil charges... so...



I know a good majority if not all of you are not remotely close enough to help, but volunteers are needed desperately right now. We have to drywall the entire building and move all the birds in by next week. If you are able and have experience drywalling, we need your help. We will be starting Friday night and will not be stopping until its completed. Many hands make for light work, so they say so please help if you are able.



If you can make it, please contact me for directions.

I would dearly love to help, and do know how to hang drywall and other things (Carpenters kid after all), but I am just too far away.



Good luck to you all! All I can do is send good thoughts, sorry!

Like I said, I know 99% of the people on here are way too far away. I'm just posting on the off chance that someone lives nearby or perhaps has nothing better to do than come out and help... I knew it was a long shot but thought I'd try.

I'm close, but have no car. Sad



Try posting an ad for volunteers in local grocery stores, farmers markets, Craigslist, etc.

Ohh, I've got more time and talent than money (and I don't have any of that right now). If I were closer, I'd be right there... and I'd drag along the rest of my family too.

I'll send you all the energy and strength I have. I hope it helps. Smile

Good luck guys!

If only I was still in High School right now! Every month I got to choose a charity in which the school would collect money for.

I'm too far away, and I've got no money (or means to fund raise).

Is there a local animal shelter you could contact to house the birds temporarily?

Housing the birds isn't an issue, transporting such large numbers of them with such a short deadline is....
