Nestled in the beauty of Freedom, Maine, Avian Haven was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization by Marc Payne and Diane Winn in 1999. Over the years our annual patient load has increased from 300 to more than 3,000 birds, making us one of the largest avian rehabilitation centers in New England. Approximately 34,000 birds from more than 100 species have been treated at Avian Haven. We care for wild birds that are orphaned, sick, and/or injured, with a goal of releasing them back into the wild. In addition to our dedicated staff, onsite volunteers, transporters, and interns are a critical part of our team.

Avian Haven provides:

Comprehensive medical care in a modern, well-equipped clinic.

Rehabilitation in an environment designed to simulate natural conditions.

Research and education to other wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife professionals on a local, state, and national level.

Opportunities for enhanced awareness and education to the general public and academic institutions.
