New Year’s Resolution!

At year-end, we hear a lot about shedding what no longer serves us and embracing new habits. At The Bird Rescue Center, we’re sure of one thing: You’re on our list of things to keep and hold dearly!

The outpouring of support in the last months of 2022 has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. We are humbled. Thank you for your incredible generosity!

Here are the Challenge Match Totals as of early AM December 31st:

TEAM OPS: $211,815

TEAM BUILD: $203,970

Yes, Team Ops is still in the lead. Even more importantly, both teams are clearly winners!

Thank you for recognizing that every dollar you donate—whether to Team Ops or to Team Build—will be used for life-saving work to ensure our native wild bird populations get second chances at life and survive and thrive into the future.

A special shout out to our seed sponsors, without whom this Challenge Match would not have been possible. Huge thanks to Mary Love, Joanne Dow, Susan and Alan Preston, Anonymous Donors, and our Board of Directors!

And a huge thank you to each of you who brought the Challenge Match to resounding success!!

We’ve heard that many people choose to wait to give until the very last day of the calendar year. Well, that would be today! If you are in that category, please know that your gift to either Team Ops or Team Build will have a life-saving impact. To read more about how your gift will be used, see below. In short: You will be saving lives.

THANK YOU!
You are helping wild birds soar into the future!

Remember, wild birds are not pets. They are naturally frightened of humans and it is also against the law to keep them in your home without a permit. As a rescuer of an injured or orphaned wild bird you play a very important role. It is essential that the bird receives professional care as soon as possible. With fractures and breaks, the longer the injury remains untreated, the more difficult it is to fix. Particularly with young birds, dehydration and starvation are quick to set in… read more →
