Horizon Wings is a non-profit Wildlife Rehabilitation Center specializing
in Birds of Prey. All of our funding is provided by
educational programs and donations.
Horizon Wings has several raptors that cannot be released back into the wild
due to their injuries. Fortunately we are able to keep these birds
at our center and, with a special permit,
use them for educational programs.

Horizon Wings has created a fund in the memory of a very special child, Catherine Violet Hubbard. Catherine was one of the children that lost her life at Sandy Hook. Catherine had a true love for all animals and in her memory we would like to share this love by using donations to this fund to bring live bird programs to children who may otherwise never experience this.
Please learn more about Catherine by visiting CVHFoundation.org.
Donations can be made by check or through PayPal on our website, please add a note designating the donation to go to Catherine's fund.
Horizon Wings does a number of public programs throughout the year. We are also available for programs to private organizations and individuals.
Our upcoming events change frequently, so visit often, and we look forward to seeing you at one!
