Adopt a Bird

You can help Alabama’s injured & orphaned wild birds through the Adopt-A-Bird Program!
Your gift to our Adopt-A-Bird Program can make a life or death difference. The Adopt-A-Bird program directly benefits injured and orphaned native birds with all proceeds going towards the medical needs, care and feeding of birds at the Alabama Wildlife Center.

Adoptions make terrific gifts for your favorite animal lover. Select a bird and enter recipient information. We will send your honoree a handsome Certificate of Adoption that acknowledges your gift to them and bears a color photograph of your chosen bird.  We’ll also send you a confirmation letter of your gift.
