  RESCUE    RELEASE    REHABILITATION    

If you find an injured bird or one you might think is orphaned, give us a call or a wildlife facility in your area. In the meantime, please put the bird in a dark, warm, dry box. This is ​the best thing you can do for the bird and is the first treatment for shock.

WHAT IT COSTS TO REHABILITATE A BIRD

Each bird in rehab is in a secure location with limited contact to keep them as wild as possible.
The cost to feed one bird can range from
$3.00-$15.00 per day or $93.00 - $465.00 per month.

depending on the animal whether it be their size, species, or age. Babies cost more because they are eating at least double what an adult would.

Please consider donating to help us get these animals fed and back to the wild where they belong.

Each year we work hard to get birds back to the wild.

Below are pictures of birds being rehabilitated and released.

Birds brought to our center are examined and evaluated by our licensed staff to determine how best to proceed with medical care and rehabilitation. Using experience and established wildlife protocols, our treatment begins in an ICU setting. Injuries requiring equipment and skills we cannot provide are treated by local veterinarians. Once stabilized, the patient will be moved out of the ICU for rest, recovery, and preparation for release back to the wild.

Rescue

The time that each bird needs to recover in captivity varies from days to months. Once a bird has gained back its strength and is given a clean bill of health, it is ready to go back to the wild. SFRC releases animals into safe and compatible environments, taking into consideration the specific needs of the species, including food and water sources, migratory patterns, and original habitat.
