You can help The Avian Reconditioning Center by sponsoring one of our raptor residents through the Adopt-a-Bird program. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and 100% of all donations go directly to bird care!

Adoption sponsorship donations help us with the cost of food, housing supplies, medicine and veterinary care for the resident raptors at our facility and also help fund our rehabilitation efforts.

Your donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law and your support is truly appreciated.  Thank you for helping us help the birds!

When you sponsor the care of one of our resident raptors, you receive a packet of information on the chosen bird. You can choose to sponsor any of our Owls, Falcons, Hawks, Kites, or Eagles! In addition to a personalized adoption certificate and photo of your bird, you get your bird’s biography, species information, general information on raptors and a subscription to ARC’s newsletter. If the packet is for a child, we include coloring and activity sheets.

If this is a gift, please provide the recipient's name and mailing info. If you would like to include a personal message or provide more info, please use the "add special instructions to seller" option during check out.

We cannot reissue certificates, so please double check all information before submitting your order.
