Please bring your sick or injured bird straight to our rehab centre. You do not need to call us first. We may not be able to take your call during busy periods.

Which birds do we take?

We take any native or non-native bird that is injured, bleeding, stray, lost, or abandoned (for more than 2 hours). Just bring them in and we’ll take care of them for you.

Please note: All your birds are treated and rehabilitated. Your bird is only euthanised if there is no other option, and only as a last resort.

We are unable to accept roosters and chickens. Please contact The Animal Sanctuary for advice:

Similarly, we do not accept lost or abandoned pet birds. If you find a lost or abandoned pet bird, please contact your nearest SPCA centre.
