Bird Rescue
First it would be a good idea to volunteer at a bird rescue to see what it's all about; it's a lot of work, but it can be very rewarding... Set up your space, do you have a bird room? You'll also need a quarentine area, preferably one in a different building (a good friend's house, heated outbuilding, detached garage) or at least with a major air purifier in the winter to prevent possible spread of disease. Then I would buy or make big cages, in my experience birds are usually given up without a cage or in a way too small cage- you might want to make them so they can come apart or fold for storage. Start collecting toys, branches for perches, and dishes, too so you can have the new cage all set up for incoming birds. Now's the time to decide what kind of birds you want to rescue and read everything you can on them, also general information; feeding, phychology, and husbandry. When you think you're ready, put up flyers in local pet stores and vet's offices, contact the local bird clubs and other area rescues to see if you can take their overflow.
