Subsection Code 501(c)(3) ​​​​​Under My Wing Avian Refuge exist to provide captive birds with individualized care, the companionship of a flock, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being and educating the public of the complex needs of parrots in captivity and the crisis facing them.

The Sanctuary is currently home to approx. 100 captive abandoned parrots, retired from rescued from our local animal enforcement organizations many of whom suffer long-term health and behavioral issues.

We employ a fully integrated team of veterinarians and caregivers who provide high-quality care by using positive reinforcement and meet the needs of each bird in our care.

The parrot’s habitations are not open to the public, but by appointment and educational purposed only do we allow both public and private schools to visit.

Under My Wing Avian Refuge is a nonprofit organization. Foundation Type: General, charity-Section 509(a)(2) Registration Id 26-1470517 Subsection Code 501(c)(3).

Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

The COVID-19 pandemic marks an unprecedented time in modern history that will require the best of humanity to overcome. 


We are learning everything we can about getting COVID-19 and taking that knowledge to move beyond it. 

Our need for services is increasing, but donations, other sources of income and attendance of volunteers have been deeply compromised. As we are experiencing a significant drop in income, a need to restructure ways of operations may need to change as the changes occurring in our programs and services due to the effects of COVID-19.

Our main goal at present is seek support for our basic operations to be able to keep our facility open and ensuring that the birds in our care continue to receive everything, they need. 
 
At this time of great worry and uncertainty for us all, we sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are in good health. Under My Wing Avian Refuge assures you that we are following government advice and have put strict measures in place to protect staff and everybody they come into contact with.
 
Under My Wing depends on your generosity to feed and care for animals, we are deeply concerned about how this will affect the birds who depend on us. Please consider the financial implications of the virus on our organization. Every act of kindness counts and makes a difference.
 
Your donation to support our mission will help us through these uncertain times.
