We receive thousands of needy birds each spring.  Some are orphaned or abandoned but many are victims of a cruel Easter practice of buying ducks, chicks and bunnies them setting them free.

Recent storm damage has depleted some of our reserves and we receive no government funding or assistance of any kids.  We rely entire on the generosity of caring people who make donations.  Donations no matter how small can make a difference.

Please click here and consider sponsoring one of these animals in need.

CWR was recently featured on the PBS Nature series show Bionic Pets.  If you are interested in sponsoring one of our birds who needs a prosthetic or you would just like more information check out our prosthetics page.
