The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine works closely with several organizations to help save the lives of exotic animals. Every year thousands of pet birds, small mammals, and reptiles are rescued from NYC streets and city parks. Countless more are abandoned at local animal shelters or left outside of pet stores. It is our mission to help find these wonderful pets a place to call home.
We are proud that since we opened in 2004 we have been working with local shelters and other NYC rescue organizations. In that time, we have placed hundreds of animals in wonderful new homes! View our pets (birds, geckos, rabbits...) available for adoption»
Although the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine cannot house and treat wildlife due to the risk of infectious disease, the doctors and staff work closely with the Wild Bird Fund. This non-profit organization provides medical care for birds and other native wildlife who are ill, who have been injured by vehicles or other animals, or who have lost their homes due to the city’s ongoing construction. The WBF’s dedicated volunteers are highly skilled and have saved hundreds of animals, however if the medical need arises, the Center’s doctors and staff are always willing to donate their time and resources.
