    Weʼve raised £950 to help fund to extend our rescue aviary and help Ben

    Gloucester, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 26th March 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We run a small Corvid sanctuary/rescue in Gloucestershire. We rehabilitate crows, rooks, jackdaws and other birds who where possible release back into the wild.

    Unfortunately some of our birds can't be released, so it's vital that we can give them the best home to practice natural behaviours and live a good life in captivity.

    At present we have 7 resident disabled birds and have recently released two jackdaws, a gull and a crow.

    Morris the crow has got permanent damage with his eyes and can be quite unsettled and Morse our rook can get scared in open spaces.

    After hours of searching for Ben who was found to have another broken wing (we recently released) he is now with us so will need specialist care.

    We aim to make the aviary more suited to their needs and cover medical costs.

    Thank you for all your support,
    Helen, Russell Crow and family xx

      We are simply overwhelmed by how supportive everyone has been. We can't thank you enough. We have purchased some new paving slabs and wood for the new construction and Ben is off to a specialist vets today. It looks like we may have a fully adapted aviary in time for Christmas. The best present ever! xx

      Well done -- you are fantastic. I feed the crows, and enjoy their antics when there's food about. Hope Ben recovers well.
