Who We Are
Wings of Hope prides itself on finding loving, experienced adoptive homes for unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned exotics. We believe that all animals deserve the highest quality care, love and respect, and that owners should have access to the most current bird information possible. Unwanted exotics are accepted at WOH, and in turn are adopted out to qualified applicants.

We are a nonprofit, volunteer organization established in 2000 that is dedicated to assisting owners in finding new, loving homes for their animals when they can no longer care for them. We are a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, as recognized by the IRS.

Please be advised that Wings of Hope utilizes a network of private foster homes for our birds. In order to see a bird you may be interested in, you must have an approved application on file. If you are ready to apply now, you can access the online version now. Once that is received, reviewed, and approved, you can make an appointment with the respective foster home to see the animal of your choosing.

We do NOT ship our birds. If you are interested in a bird we have in our program, you must make arrangements to come see the bird prior to adoption. WE do NOT offer a delivery service of any kind.

Our Goals
  • Educate persons interested in the proper care of exotic pets.
  • Rehabilitate and correct behavioral problems resulting from just not knowing the right thing to do
  • Find loving, longtime homes for displaced exotics with persons who understand and respect the animal for her or her uniqueness.
  • To help exotics remain in their homes, whenever possible, through behavior modification and education. We are always here to help.
  • To educate the public about their proper care and their place in the wild.
  • To continue working with animal welfare organizations in an effort to ensure that every exotic in captivity has a safe and loving home.

Adopting One Of Our Friends

We are bursting at the seams with all kinds of birds! We have a variety of birds ready and patiently waiting for their loving, longtime homes.

Our birds are disease tested and come with a cage, toys, and a small supply of food so that your bird can eat the same food that he or she did in their foster home. This helps to smooth your bird's transition into their new home.

If you are interested in adopting one of our birds, you can fill out an online adoption application or use the printable adoption application and return it to us for processing. Would you like to know more about our Adoption Program? Please note that NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE PROCESSED without the application fee. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at (732) 833 - 7825 and our hotline volunteer will return your call within 24 - 48 hours.

Please be advised that Wings of Hope does not operate on a first come, first served basis. We attempt to make the best match for both the bird and new owner. Some birds may require more than one visit before an adoption is approved. If you are offered 3 suitable birds, per your adoption application, and deny all, your application will be dead-filed.

Call for Foster Homes

Open your heart and home to an animal in need and provide daily care, love, and security to them at an often difficult time in their life until a suitable adoptive family is found. This is one of the MOST important areas of rescue, and we ALWAYS need LOTS of foster homes. The more qualified foster homes we have, the more birds we can help.

Be part of a team that has 5 members certified by PIJAC and a team that prides ourselves on keeping current and always learning all we can about parrots and birds.

Learn more about birds by fostering and hands on care and know that the rest of the team is ALWAYS here if you have any questions or problems.

On behalf of everyone at WOH-NJ, thanks for learning more about volunteering with us. If you’d like to volunteer with us, we’d love to have you! You may fill out our Wings of Hope NJ Member & Application Online Form, or if you'd like you may print one and mail or fax it to us.

Waiting Lists & Pre-approval

We ask you to keep in mind that many birds never appear on this page, but are placed quickly upon the return of their bloodwork. Our prescreened, preapproved homes in waiting make it possible for us to place incoming birds into appropriate homes with very little fuss. If you wish to be considered as a “pre-approved” potential home for incoming birds, you can fill out an adoption application and have your adoption interview and if all goes well there, we will have everything in place so that when a bird who is appropriate for your home arrives, it is simply a matter of you meeting the bird and the bird can be placed with you. This is the very best method for us to use, allowing us to keep our adoption fees low and allowing us to have lots of wonderful home choices for the birds who come to us.

Where We Are

We are centrally located in New Jersey. However, we do have foster homes throughout the northeast, including NJ, NY, PA and now NC. Wings of Hope provides rescue and sanctuary for a variety of pets, from avian exotics to mice. We believe all animals deserve a longtime home and quality of care for their lifetime. We utilize a network of foster homes located throughout the NJ area along the east coast into NC. We do NOT ship any of our rescue animals. Please visit us anytime online at www.wingsofhope-nj.com.

Special Thanks To...

Leesa, my co-founder and partner in crime, all of our amazing volunteers who give so selflessly of themselves, all our adopters for providing good homes for these birds that need new homes, the surrendering families for trusting Wings of Hope with your babies, and our generous donators, and Petco, The Petco Foundation and Hartz for their generous donations.

Please Be Advised

Wings of Hope does NOT maintain a shelter and we do NOT have visiting hours or hours of operation since all of our birds are in private foster home located throughout tri state area as well as NC. You must have an approved application on file PRIOR to seeing any of our birds. The address you see below is not our facility, but the general location of our business office. We do NOT have any birds at this location, it is strictly used for business purposes.

All birds are vetted and/or disease tested prior to adoption and all birds will be adopted with a cage, toys and all supplies. A donation will be required at the time of adoption and this is non-refundable and because we are a 501 non profit organization, it is tax deductible as allowed by law.
