Now their landlord has demanded that they move by November. And the organization needs help desperately. They have a small building fund, but property in their New Jersey town is expensive and donations have come to a halt because of the slow economy.

If 1000 people would pledge to donate just $5.00 per month to our cause, it would yield us $5,000.00 a month and this will cover the food (pellets, fresh fruits and veggies, treats and nuts), building cost and utilities. Without any emergencies/surgeries this amount may also cover our veterinary and medications expenses.

Urgent: Bird sanctuary being forced to move
September 18, 4:22 PMPet Rescue ExaminerSharon Seltzer

nder My Wing Avian Refuge is the permanent home to more than 130 unwanted exotic birds, from Parakeets to Macaws. Now the non-profit sanctuary has been ordered to move. Without help to find a new location, the refuge will have to close its doors.

The exotic bird rescue group began when Paula Ashfield started helping care for several birds because their owners were unwilling or unable to keep them. The birds’ histories varied – ranging from those who were abused, sick, or intolerable to those whose owners had died.

Without other facilities in the area, the number of birds grew steadily, and Ashfield and her husband relocated from their home to a larger sanctuary.

Over the past few years Paula Ashfield has been called to help, because of her expertise with exotic birds, by local law enforcement agencies and animal rescue groups - whenever a case of abuse or neglect has been suspected in a bird.

The majority of birds at Under My Wing Avian Refuge live on the premises permanently. All of the birds have comfortable housing, appropriate diets, and a safe environment. They receive endless attention and affection to fulfill their unique physical, emotional, and behavioral needs, thanks to Ashfield’s devotion.

Now their landlord has demanded that they move by November. And the organization needs help desperately.

They have a small building fund, but property in their New Jersey town is expensive and donations have come to a halt because of the slow economy.

Under My Wing has the day-to-day expense of feeding the birds and providing necessary medical care. The added expense of moving to a new facility may put them over the edge and force them to close.

Please take a moment to look at the faces of the many birds Paula Ashfield has single-handedly rescued and rehabilitated. Many people that adopt exotic birds are not prepared for the amount of care they need, the amount of space they require or the amount of noise they make. Many of the birds are exiled to dark closets, basements or garages.

Paula Ashfield rescues all of them and has never turned down a bird in need. Please click here to see how you can help Under My Wing Avian Refuge.
