What We Do

It starts with a call from someone who has found an injured, ill, or orphaned bird or animal. The rescuer brings the patient in for a full exam, which can include wound care, x-rays, surgery, splinting, diagnostic tests, and medicine when necessary. The Wild Bird Fund cares for all federally protected birds and critical cases, and will train the rescuer to care for the non-critical patients.

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.

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.
