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!

Ted and Alice 

This is a bickering couple of canaries that were dumped in a filthy box in a local park. Canaries are so enjoyable- and these two have a lot of personality! We believe one is a male, he is a good singer, and the other is a female... constantly beating him up! They will need a large space to be able to find their own territory, and will be so much fun to watch. 


Pinky and The Brain

Two more victims of summer time dumping... so far in 2019 we have had 16 birds abandoned in parking lots, parks, and apartments. These two were in a tiny cage, terrified, left in front of an apartment building, like garbage. They are very nervous, but when left alone, they sing and whistle to each other while they cuddle. They are in need of some serious TLC.
