Please bring sick or injured birds straight to our rehabilitation 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 wild bird that is sick, injured, or orphaned. Please bring them to our Green Bay rehabilitation centre and we will take care of them.

All birds are treated and rehabilitated wherever possible. Birds are euthanised only 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.

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