The bird sanctuary is a hands-on working refuge.

If you want to schedule time to talk with Dr. Tappan at the sanctuary, please use the form on this page to request time. 

  • Please indicate what you would like to talk about such as volunteering, possible adoption of a bird, avian nutrition, or general care.

  • The form can be used for general questions as well.

We are often asked where we take our birds for veterinary care.  

We take them to Dr. Holder at Florida Wild in Deland and the Small Animal Hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

The Small Animal Hospital at the University of Florida is open 24 hours a day for emergencies and appointments can be scheduled for routine care.  Call them at: 352-392-2235
