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.

  We are shelter-sanctuary that specialize in rescuing large birds/parrots mainly such as Amazons, African Greys, Cockatoos and Macaws but we also provide home for everything from Budgies to finches as well. Our main concern is for the welfare of the birds in need of a good home. 
Our doors have been opened to all unwanted, neglected and abused birds for over 2 years. Due to work and love for animals we have managed to save a lot of birds and help many birds stay with their owners through training and behavioral advice.

  We take in all species of birds, but namely tropical birds.  We do not adopt out the larger birds once they have come to us, and we provide updates on their progress throughout their lives should you wish.  We can provide references upon request.  All of our birds are allowed free flight once they are accustomed to their surroundings.  They  are given a diet of pellets, fruits and veggies.  All organic of course.  Just think of us as a retirement home for your bird.  We even take in featherless and problematic birds which we have had much experience with, and great success.
