Find Help for an Injured Bird

We provide care to sick, injured, and orphaned birds brought to us by wildlife agencies and everyday citizens. Our staff provides professional care to nurse the birds back to health for return into the wild.  Birds that are unable to be returned to the wild often  reside at the Sanctuary and become an avian ambassador.
