Carolina Waterfowl Rescue in Indian Trail is a non-profit bird rescue -- but after last night's thunderstorms it is asking for more than just help with feeding and caring for birds.

Large tree limbs fell throughout the 11-acre property -- damaging a number of animal shelters, a water well and creating one-big mess.

"We anticipated the storm and had been moving animals to safety beforehand," Director Jennifer Gordon said. "We are still assessing the damage and checking the birds, but we do need a lot of volunteers in the next few days to help with cleanup and repairs."

The rescue brought in over 3,000 birds last year and says it has over 1,000 right now.
 
Volunteers have been working to cut down hanging tree limbs and clean up the remaining mess. No birds were hurt during the storm, but spaces that house birds outside have been damaged.
