Where ideas become reality

Incubator Fundraiser!

Each year, we see hundreds of patients from various species that may become short-term or long-term patients. This means we need large amounts of resources and medical equipment to care for them properly. We have used DIY incubators for our orphaned birds and mammals in the past. While this method has worked for us, we would like something a little more precise to be able to expertly and accurately care for these orphans.

It costs $550 for a bird incubator and $1000 for a mammal incubator; this is excluding the cost of shipping. We aim to get two bird incubators and one mammal incubator. We hope to have these incubators on-site by the end of May!
All donations will go directly to the purchase of these incubators.

COVID 19 and Highly pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) updAte!

  • With the changes in legislation in Alberta, we at CEI have decided that our employees will continue to mask in order to protect the health of our staff, and of you, the public! 

  • Due to the increase in cases of HPAI we are asking that all individuals coming to CEI and Happy Tails Pet retreat to please call ahead! This way we can take proper precautions and continue to prevent the spread of HPAI and to protect our feathered residents, patients, and our wild bird populations!
