Registering Helping Wings as a not for profit organisation

The main goal of Helping Wings is to help any bird owner in crisis with vet bills – food-toys etc -as most pet insurance companies do not recognise our feathered kids ( FIDS) as being insurable. To do this we run auctions with most items having been donated out of our own pockets with a few donated items from other supporters. We promote safe and responsible bird ownership, offer support to new bird owners and we help owners financially with their vet bills in emergencies where the bird has become ill and emergency treatment or surgery is required.
