The Wild Bird Fund’s mission is to provide medical care and rehabilitation to injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife of New York City and to release them back to the wild. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) and the only wildlife rehabilitation facility in New York City.
Each year the Wild Bird Fund rehabilitates over 1500 animals. Rehabilitation includes x-rays, diagnostic testing, surgery, medication, bandaging, splinting, physical therapy, and special diets. We treat varieties of wildlife from common sparrows and squirrels to rarities such as Virginia rails and great horned owls.
Supporting the Wild Bird Fund not only heals injured animals, but positively affects the people who try to help them, and shows a desire to take responsibility for the impact that we have had on the environment of our precious wildlife.
