ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-It is the mission of Wild Bird Rehabilitation to care for injured, ill, and orphaned native wild songbirds and to release them back into their natural habitat. Last year, the organization cared for more than 1800 birds representing over 100 different native bird species. St. Louis city, county and state animal agencies as well as many veterinarians and other animal welfare organizations all call Wild Bird Rehabilitation when they need assistance.

Wild Bird Rehabilitation is a non-profit that receives no federal or state funding and is staffed primarily by volunteers who simply want to help area birds. They are hosting their Dine Out For Birds fundraiser on Thursday, April 21, 2016, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, at The Purple Martin. Enjoy delicious food and creative cocktails while supporting the birds. There will also be a collection drive for items that will help the rehab hospital stay clear, like bleach, toilet paper, paper towels, and hand soap.
