Since wild birds have no health insurance, AWC constantly struggles to provide care for so many injured and orphaned creatures in need. If you would like to help us keep our costs down by donating these items, they will be put to good use. We have a limited amount of storage space, so please contact us if you would like to donate a large quantity. Our shipping address is 100 Terrace Drive, Pelham, AL 35124. If you have donations shipped to us, please be sure to let us know your name and address so we can thank you properly!
