With the help of private citizens, volunteers and local animal control, over 400 injured, orphaned or ill wild birds have been rescued and admitted to FTB and that number will grow every year. These patients are promptly examined and started on a treatment plan. Click here to see some recent rescue stories.
Depending on the diagnosis, recovery may take just a few hours of rest or can involve months of extensive rehabilitation. Some birds require intense supportive care while others just need some time to heal. Some birds that are admitted to our rehabilitation center aren’t injured at all. Many birds admitted are orphaned, displaced or just too young to care for themselves. If they cannot be reunited with their parents, these wild babies are given special around the clock care.

Outreach programs are available for scheduling for private groups, schools and churches and we also participate at many off-site public events. We encourage the public to attend our outreach events, it’s a learning experience for people of all ages. Our educational speaker/s along with our Ambassadors will be available to answer your questions. Click here for helpful tips on living with wildlife.
Our primary goal is treating and then releasing our bird patients back to their natural wild habitat and is an exciting moment for everyone involved. Click here to see more recent releases.
