The Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust is entirely self-funded except for donations from generous and caring members of the public.
We always welcome donations, whether it is giving your money, time, spreading the word about what we do, or donating some materials.
Cash donations help us pay for veterinary bills, food and medications, supplies of all types, upkeep of our hospital, aviaries, and grounds, and many other aspects of our work. Any amount you can give is a tremendous help!
Your cash donations can be used for:
Bidfood who supply us with food that is not saleable (due to packaging damage or expiry date issues) that would otherwise end up in the landfill, and that we can feed to our birds.
Bidfresh who support us with fruit and vegetables not suitable for sale that would otherwise end up in the landfill, and that we can feed to our birds.
Sofitel Hotel Wellington who keep us stocked with newspapers for bedding.
Nada Bakeries who support us with buns for our plant sales sausage sizzles.
Friends of Animals Charities who have been one of our biggest financial supporters.
Volunteer Wellington who provide us with many amazing volunteers for roles ranging from bird care, to help with our plant nursery that raises money for our birds, to videographers who do training videos
Intern NZ OZ who have provided us with numerous awesome overseas interns over the years.
