Every year between 250-300 injured and orphaned wildlife come through our doors, every year is a struggle to stay afloat and we rely solely on the public for donations.

Songbirds are incredibly expensive to raise, they can cost between $50-$100 per bird depending on the species. Some birds are even more expensive. For instance, the common crow, which is Jodi’s very favorite bird, takes many, many months to mature. They need large, well constructed enclosures and have a varied diet that includes chicken, eggs, dry pet food, fish, insects, nuts, berries, vegetables and grains. Being a large bird they consume an incredible amount of hand fed formula during growth, as do all young birds.

Veterinary care medications, first aid and hand feeding supplies quickly add up. Electricity and water bills go up with special lights, heat sources, laundry, dishes, pools, and cleaning during the baby season. We are always in need of more caging indoors and out.

I am always learning by attending wildlife conferences and symposiums in addition to buying books and publications.

With a small handful of federally permitted wildlife rehabilitators in the entire state - and none on Cape Ann aside from us - your support is vital.

How well the public supports us financially is directly linked to how many birds we can accept at any given time.

Thank you,

Donations are not tax deductible at this time. If and when our application for a determination from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization is approved, we will make note of that on our site.
