There are many ways to help!

Wild Bird Rehabilitation is the only organization in the St. Louis area that cares for songbirds. Without WBR, these birds would have no place to go for help. Our mission is to ensure the survival of native songbirds through professional medical care and education regarding their value and needs.

WBR relies solely on public donations. We receive no federal funding or financial support from United Way or other similar organizations. Wild Bird Rehabilitation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Your donation will ensure the best possible care for every wild bird admitted to WBR.
