1 Calendar feeds 1 Bird for 1 Week
Our gratis supply from Charles River Laboratories will now cease entirely on January 1st, 2015. Since the recent news of the drastic reduction in gratis mice from 35 bags every 3 months to 5 bags every 6 weeks, we have become resourceful and have introduced new food items to our Birds menu. Regardless of alternative options, the money we will need to spend is monumental. It costs @ $2.00 per bird per day. Currently, we have over 30 meat eating birds on site. While some birds are permanent residents, others are rehabilitating which forces our numbers to fluctuate as each new case comes in and/or releases. So if we ever needed your donations, it is NOW! We appreciate any amount of support.

Since our Urgent Announcement, many of you have shown your support by contributing funds to help us purchase food for our Birds. We are so grateful for your dedication and want you to know how important your donations are. They have truly made a difference for our Birds and will help us to continue to carry out our mission. We can't do this without you...
A Place Called Hope is a Rehabilitation and Education Center for Birds of Prey. Our goal is to heal injured, orphaned, or ill birds and return them to the wild where they belong. Federal permits allow us to house and work with the birds that can not be returned to their natural world provided we share them through educational presentations. These particular birds have become ambassadors and have helped us to educate the public. They also teach all of us how to co-exist more peacefully with the wildlife in our very own backyards.
A Place Called Hope is a 501 c 3 non profit organization run entirely by volunteers along with donations of time, supplies and money from our supporters. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please send us an email. If you would like to make a financial contribution please use our donations tab. Thank you for your continued support. A little goes a long way.
One of our goals at A Place Called Hope, Inc. is to teach the public how to protect and respect wildlife, in particular Raptors. We are encouraged by peoples reactions to our programs and their own personal stories about the Birds of Prey they have encountered. We are thrilled to share these birds with so many people who truly care and want to learn more. Although, our biggest thrills, are experienced whenever we have the opportunity to release a wild bird back into its own environment after a brief stay at our facility! There is no comparison to giving a wild bird or animal the gift of "Freedom."
