Zaksee Florida Bird Sanctuary works to save and rescue birds, most often with funding only through our own pockets. There are many types of donations that individuals can make to help ease the burden of operating our bird rescue and sanctuary, so here is our wish lists of the items we need. We have regular needs for financial, material and personnel support, The exact items that will be most welcome vary throughout the year, some items are constant, other items might be strongly needed only at certain times. please check our wish list and donate to our very worthy cause.

Donating Money

Rehabilitating birds is an expensive business, and financial donations of any amount are always welcome ( Every dollar helps and 100% of your donation is tax deductible and goes directly to the rescue,rehab and give freedom to a parrot to fly again.) at Zaksee Florida Bird sanctuary. Donating money will help us get the most use from every dollar. But where does that money go? Zaksee Florida Bird rescue/Sanctuary have enormous operating costs, which include:
Medical Care: X-rays, medication, first aid supplies and veterinary care for sick and injured birds.

Building Maintenance: Flight cage, maintenance of perches and new toys.
Food: All types of foods for birds, including specialized diets, vitamins and nutritional supplements for malnourished birds.
Vehicles: Gas, insurance and other costs for vehicles to retrieve injured birds as well as to take birds to and from veterinary appointments.
Operating Costs: Utility, telephone and other basic operational costs for the entire facility.

These costs can quickly add up, and even small financial donations are welcome. Cash, checks and money orders are all useful, as are gift cards to pet stores, home stores and chains like Target and Wal-Mart where supplies can be easily purchased. It may be hard for one birder to donate $1,000, but if 1,000 birders all donate only $10, the total donation can help our facility offer critical services to birds in need for a long time.
