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 for adoption below. Read about our success stories here!

If you are interested in adopting any of our available pets, please fill out the applicable Adoption Form linked below and indicate the name of the pet you are hoping to adopt. Please note the Avian adoption form specifies parrots, but can be used for any bird. The Mammal form specifies Rabbits, but can be used for any mammal.

Seth and Sara

Seth and Sara came to us as a bonded pair, rescued from a laboratory setting. They are both under 1 year old. Seth has been neutered at the hospital so the pair can be adopted out together! They were a bit nervous around people at first, but they are warming up to the staff more and more each day! Give them a treat and they'll be your friend forever. They are easy to please and will have a blast tearing apart paper cups and tp rolls. They have big personalities and should go to a rabbit savvy home, where they can live the posh life the deserve!
