Sweet Binks celebrates our 20th year in 2022! From 2002 until 2017, Sweet Binks operated primarily as a state licensed shelter for abandoned and neglected domestic rabbits and other farm animals.  It was very successful with rescue and placement of over 3300 rabbits.  In 2017, we turned our primary mission to wildlife rehabilitation for injured or orphaned wildlife in northern Rhode Island.  We sadly, are no longer assisting domestics to protect both wild and domestic rabbits (RHVD).  Sweet Binks is state licensed for most all species of wildlife but specializes in fawns, RVS (rabies vector species such as skunks and bats) and all birds.  We are narrowing our focus of rehabilitation to these species.  We are no longer rehabilitating small mammals such as squirrels, cottontails and mice due to heavy workload in baby season. We have our USFW Migratory Bird permit for the rehabilitation of migratory birds.  We hope to have your support helping us care for some of our greatest treasures in Rhode Island.  YOU make it possible and we hope to share our many successes with you.

We intake so many species of birds each year.  One of our biggest expenses is live mealworms, wax worrms, crickets and other supplies needed to raise them.

We raise many orphaned songbirds from hatchlings to release!


We assist with many birds, raptors, waterfowl, gamebirds and more each year.
