Why Support Avian Health Network’s
StopPDD Challenge?
For our birds! We need to make sure that research into Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) continues.
Our birds need a definitive & non-invasive screening test.
There is no safe quarantine against PDD until there is a proven cause and proven mode of transmission.
The symptoms and side effects that have been associated with PDD are varied, its routes are unknown, and its outcome is fatal.
To learn more about PDD please refer to our PDD FAQ
Read the stories of some that have been lost to PDD honored on the PDD Memorial Quilt. Do not let their lives be lost in vain! All of us can help put a stop to this dreaded disease by pulling together collectively and working together.
Meet and follow stories of the birds and their owners who are battling this disease.
Ways You Can Help Support The StopPDD Campaign
We proudly offer our sponsors a number of ways to help StopPDD:
Donations by credit card can by made by contacting donations@StopPDD.org
StopPDD has a PayPal click on their PayPal donation button.
Personal Check – You can make your gift to the StopPDD Campaign with your personal check, simply make your check payable to Avian Health Network, Inc. for StopPDD and mail to:
AHN for StopPDD,  1448 Yellowwood Court, Reston VA 20190-4058
Pledges – A pledge is a promise to give a certain amount of money over a certain period. Perhaps you would like to make a larger gift to the StopPDD Campaign, but it would strain your budget to make the gift all at once.

Avian Health Network, Inc. for the StopPDD Campaign accepts pledges and would be happy to provide you with payment reminders monthly with an invoice sent to your email that includes a direct pay link into our secure credit card transaction processor.
Matching Gifts are often possible through employers who have matching gift programs. Usually these programs match a donor’s gift dollar for dollar, doubling your support for StopPDD! You can find out if your employer has such a program by contacting your Human Resources department. Please ask them to contact Avian Health Network, Inc. for additional information at donations@StopPDD.org.
Planned Gifts make it possible for you to leave a lasting legacy to Avian Health Network, Inc. by helping guarantee the future of Avian Disease Research. Include us in your will, living trust, gift annuity, or with an outright cash endowment gift.
Memorial and tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to remember a loved one or friend. Gift acknowledgements are sent to families and/or individuals being remembered.

If you or someone you know who has lost a bird to PDD you can request a special donation program to be set up, so that donations can be made in their name. Please contact Avian Health Network, Inc. at donations@StopPDD.org
Making it work without a wallet
What if you have no money? What if your bird doesn’t have PDD, but you care and care deeply? What can you do to help?
You can talk. You can let people know about PDD, about www.StopPDD.org our campaign and the ongoing research it supports.
You can ask us for or download from www.StopPDD.org our press releases, brochures, and newsletters to print and hand out to local pet stores, vets, animal rescue organizations, rescuers, etc. in your home area.
You can let people know, when they talk about West Nile Virus, Avian Influenza or END that other avian diseases threaten both domesticated birds and wild birds.
You can send a note to information@StopPDD.org and offer to volunteer by passing email news from us to your friends.
You can continue to visit our website for updates, education, news, and opportunities.
You can help us get people involved in our activities such as “Coins for the Cause”, Charity Quilt Challenge “Birds Of a Feather”, Avian Health Network's Auction site, or join our Yahoo groups to keep informed. You can ask co-workers to join us with fun fundraising activities.
