Today's volunteer times are 1-5. I desperately need someone who is willing to mop the floor on the bathroom side. I was taking cages in and out and showered the birds inside, which made a muddy mess, but time ran out yesterday before I could mop it...blame the new Tractor Supply...I was there for at least 2 hours ;-)
I am not sure about tomorrow as far as hours go. I will post as soon as I see how today goes! Thank you!

Volunteering: Using this page to recruit volunteers for special work days is usually the easiest method so no one has to tell a coordinator 'no', and everyone has equal opportunity to be included.

It is also very important to me to make sure everyone feels welcome and appreciated. I don't like not feeling unwelcome or unappreciated, so I never want others who come here to feel that way. It is a Village for good reason! ;-)

That being said...we do have stricter rules for volunteers than we used to. Even days like this weekend that are supposed to be relaxed and not so job oriented, there are still rules in place to protect the birds and the volunteer. Here are a few...

1. If you are under 18 years of age, you MUST have a parent with you at all times. Both must sign a liability waiver.
2. All volunteers sign a liability waiver, no exceptions.
3. Volunteers engaging in educational events where children are involved must consent to a background check.
4. If you see something amiss, fix it or ask me to fix it. If you have a question as to why a certain "thing" is "that" way, just ask. I will be happy to answer. I only bite the heads off volunteers for doing this on the 16th Friday the 13th of the century. Odds are in your favor, especially on non-Fridays.
5. No gossiping...we are not in middle school. If you can't say it to a person's face, don't engage in it with others. It does not help the parrots, it does not help the rescue, and if it continues after one warning, you will be asked to leave in writing and in person. Yes...we do hold your permanent record!
6. Have fun for goodness sake! These rules aren't that bad! ;-)

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncI wasn't a nun, nor did I go to Catholic school...much worse...I survived bad volunteer management...totally my fault for not anticipating the need to refresh my managerial skills prior to doing rescue but painful none the less. We are blessed with the best volunteers, and I want to keep it that way ;)4   ·  2 days ago

I tried to arrange Mr. Sully Grey's toys in a way he wouldn't spend the day tending to his manly urges, but he figured out how to get the business done anyway. This is the time of year I could put together a parrot Kama Sutra. I think I would call this the Frisky Sinner Grey Bird position..yeah, needs a bit of work ;-) ... See MoreSee Less

Nikki HitchcockSo gonna come! *Clearing calender now*3 days ago

Amber KobeltI would love to come!3 days ago

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncJo Taylor, at this point it is both days. I am not sure of a plan for Sunday, but Saturday for sure. It is going to be crowded here because all of the birds, even the communal living birds from the main level are on their way down to the lower level in individual cages because the floors on the main level are getting painted next week. Weather delayed travel plans a couple of weeks ago, but the painting is such a big job that I can't delay it.
The real blessing is that we are 7 fewer than we were 2 weeks ago! WooHoo!
Nikki Hitchcock, that is awesome! You will need to have a parent with you or for them to sign a liability waiver for you since you are under 18, but I and the birds look forward to seeing you again!2   ·  3 days ago

Rebekah RabinowitzI'll be there.2   ·  3 days ago

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncNikki Hitchcock, it has to be submitted by your parents since you are a minor. It is just too dangerous here to have a minor without supervision. We had to get a bit stricter :(
Dani Robinson Pierce, thank you! I was going to put the hours from 1-5 or so since it is going to take me longer to do food and water with the birds moved around, but for you, I can do earlier :)
Thank you Jackie Egland and Rebekah Rabinowitz!1   ·  3 days ago

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncNikki Hitchcock, can you please remove your posting on the Roswell page regarding this volunteer opportunity. This is for Village followers only. I cannot manage a huge influx of non-parrot folk, especially since we are swamped already. It is a closed group, so I had to post the request here. Thanks!1   ·  3 days ago

Nikki HitchcockOh sorry, no problem. I removed them. :) My bad aha3 days ago

Emie McGeeI definitely am up for coming to help! And just to be sure, it'll be this Saturday from 1-5?

I can't imagine a better "stop" along the way to finding a new home than Miss Vicki's and her crew! I've seen first hand who she is and what she does! Thank you all!

- Janet Holt Hilton

100% applause. This is my dream and someone else is livin it! Awesome job! I wish I had millions to help. I loved the feathered friends!

- Yancy K Quinn

One of the most tightly run clean and caring rescues I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Highly recommend for advice or adoption!

- Dia Frost

A joy to be in such a wonderful, happy bird place. If you have never visited, and are interested in adopting a wonderful bird who is waiting for a new home, make plans to go!!
