Native Bird Care is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We depend entirely on public donations, we receive nothing from any government or other agency. The cost of caring for our wild flighted friends averages $25-200 per bird, but intensive cases can cost significantly more than this. Without public support, we would not be able to do what we do.
100% of all donations go toward food, medicine and medical supplies, and facility costs. We are entirely volunteer, and depend on the support of the community. Our busiest season is the summer when we get the most birds, and many are babies or fledglings. Since Native Bird Care seeks to release the healthiest, most successful birds, we use a lot of live food (insects) which are expensive.
Want to sponsor a bird you brought in? Send a note with your donation and we will earmark it for that bird. Please consider donating some amount. Anything counts! Thanks for caring for our bird neighbors.
