Wild Bird Treatment Centers

If you have found an injured wild bird, call the center nearest to you. Wild birds can transmit disease and some can bite or harm you directly. Also, sometimes they don't actually need help and your interference may actually cause more harm. Call a rehabilitator to discuss the situation and determine if help is needed. We also have a bird rescue manual on this website, just in case you cannot contact a rehabilitator. Remember that it is illegal to keep or treat wildlife without permits.

There are several great wildlife rehabilitation groups in Alaska and Washington. Dr. Ford has personally worked with the ones listed below and can safely recommend your financial support. If you can volunteer or would like to support them financially or with donations of goods or services, please contact the organizations directly. Each of these groups is vital to their region and while they do cooperate with eachother to provide the best care possible for injured birds, each group must find its own funding. THESE GROUPS DO NOT RECEIVE ANY GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL SUPPORT! Thank you for supporting wildlife!
