Bird of Prey Rehabilitation Center

About APCH

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 on ways we can better co-exist with all wildlife within our very own backyards.

We are State Licensed and Federally Permitted to care for wild Birds of all kinds. Birds of Prey, Corvids and Vultures are our specialty. Raptors in CT include; Hawks, Falcons, Harriers, Osprey, Kites, Eagles, Owls and Barn Owls. Corvids in CT include; Ravens, American Crows, Fish Crows, and Bluejays. Vultures in CT include; Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures. Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, re-nest and release each bird back into the wild whenever possible. Sometimes birds suffer from injuries which make it impossible for them to return to the wild. In that case, we house them at our Center to become ambassadors for their own kind.

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.
