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!
Zippleback was found in a filthy fish tank on the curb in upper Manhattan. Why somebody would not want her is beyond us- she is the most lovely and engaging Bearded Dragon we have met! She loves to eat her veggies, chase her crickets, and just be loved. Come by for a visit if you are interested in taking her home!
Splay & Chloe
Introducing 2 silly budgies looking to go to a home together! This is Splay (the green splay-legged boy) and Chloe, his girlfriend. They are not particularly fond of people, but they sure do love each other! While Splay is handicapped, he certainly doesn't know it- he loves to fly, crawl all over his cage, and court his lovely Chloe. They are a joy to watch and interact with!
Charly & Phyll
This pair of budgies are so lovely- and we believe they are both females (somebody in there keeps laying eggs!). We call them Charly and Phyll! These two are active, love to fly and shred paper to make nests, and eat their veggies! They are not hand tame, but do like talking to people (well, chirping!). We would like to find them a home together, but they would probably do well with other budgies too!
Haru was most likely a stow-away in an ornamental plant! He is not the first Green Anole we have had dropped off here by someone who finds them in some new shrubbery! He does NOT like to be handled, but is so much fun to observe eating, playing, climbing, and just being an adorable lizard! Won't you come visit him and consider giving him a home?
