Raising money to complete our avian hospital pens

$200 of $5,000 goal
Given by 3 generous donors in around 11 months

Donations required to go towards the completion of 6 Avian Hospital Pens


Thanks to the staff and students at G&H Training Ltd, we have had 6 new pen foundations kindly built and donated to us.

At this stage we require plumbling, electrical, heat pads and waterproof lining before we can house any birds in them. (A completed hospital pen is shown in the page image)

We would like to ask for your help to complete this project. The estimated cost of completion being NZD$900 per pen. The main cost is the supply and specialist installation of the pen lining which is unable to be done by ourselves.

These pens are an essential part of our rehabilitation as they allow us to house and keep sick or injured birds warm and comfortable as well as providing water by the incorporation of a bath.

We would like to be able to complete these pens to allow more sick and injured birds get the help and rehabiliation they need! Ideally they will replace pens in our Quarantine Hospital first as these old pens are smaller with inadequate baths and harder to keep sterile. We will be adding more new pens to the Main Hospital if there is not enough space for them all in the Quarantine Hospital.

We hope to have all new pens functional as soon as possible and with your help, we can achieve this!

Every dollar counts!

I have seen theses pens recently; they are amazing! Will be great compared with existing old pens with no built-in heating and only small baths.
