Volunteer At Zaksee Parrot Sanctuary

Volunteers are the lifeblood of animal rescue. Can you set aside some time to help in the rescue process? There are many ways in which you might be of service. If you are interested, please fill out the volunteer application and return it to the sanctuary.

Zaksee Parrot Sanctuary was established for one reason only, to “provides a loving home for parrots that truly need us”. Zaksee Parrot Sanctuary is located on well over 200,000 square feet, surrounded by rolling streams of fresh water and luscious greenery. The ambiance of our sanctuary is breath taking. Each and every bird on this property receives our undivided attention.

We are not about numbers but all about providing each parrot the attention they so desperately deserve. We do have an extensive waiting list, however, those parrots requiring our immediate attention, we will truly try to accommodate.
