bulletRegistered Charity Number 85336 3364 RR0001
bulletWe offer fostering, adoption and sanctuary programs for the birds that come into our care. 
bulletWe are a completely voluntary staff and board of directors.
bulletEducate the public on the needs of parrots.  
bulletTo meet this objective we have extensive intake assessments and medical screening for birds coming into our care. This is to provide the adoptive home with the best possible history of the bird. 

These birds will be carefully assessed by our directors and will be placed into one of five categories:
1. We provide mentorship for the present owner and the bird.
2.  We provide temporary fostering in which we work first with the bird and then the bird and the present owner with the goal of the bird returning to its present home.
3.  We provide fostering in which we work with the bird until the bird is suitable for adoption and a suitable adoptive home can be found.
4.  The bird is deemed fit for immediate adoption and we provide fostering until a suitable adoptive home can be found for the bird.
5.  We place the bird in permanent sanctuary due to the physical, behavioral, and/or mental health conditions of the bird which render it unsuitable as a companion to a member of the general public.  
 *  Our long-term goal is to create a facility in which we can operate our intake, adoption, and fostering programs as well as providing a permanent sanctuary for birds in need.
