Membership Matters

Membership Matters

Donors like you are vital to our goal of rehabilitating and returning injured, orphaned, and oiled native birds to their rightful place in the wild. Your annual membership helps support our Wild Bird Clinic and Oiled Wildlife Response and Contingency programs to give the best possible care to the thousands of birds brought to us each year.

“Seeing a bird lift from my hand and fly free again is the greatest gift I know.”
– Lynne Frink, Tri-State’s Founder

MODO (monthy donor) Membership Program

Begin or renew your membership with a monthly gift.

Are you MODOvated to save birds’ lives? 

Then join our flock of MODOs! Not  MOurning DOves,  MOnthly DOnors.

All MODOs receive an automatic membership when they sign up.

For just $5 a month, you can start your own MODO membership and become a sustaining member of Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research!
