Our mission is the betterment of parrots’ lives, whether those parrots reside in our homes or in the wild. We accomplish this through education, re-homing assistance, and networking.
Purpose and Vision
Parrots are charismatic, colorful, charming and consequently, the third most popular companion animal in the United States. However, parrots have a long lifespan and often outlive their caregivers. Also, parrots are essentially wild animals with behaviors that are frequently misunderstood and unappreciated by their human caregivers. For these reasons, parrots may find themselves repeatedly re-homed. This can be traumatic for an animal that, in the wild, would rely on the stability and safety of one flock during its lifetime.
Education: Through individual interaction and community outreach, we educate the public on the intrinsic needs of companion parrots regarding behavior, diet, exercise and enrichment, by using wild parrot behavior as a model. In this way we hope to, 1) encourage an understanding of the companion parrot’s needs which will increase the quality of life and interaction for both the parrot and their human caregiver, and 2) promote interest in conservation efforts of wild and naturalized parrots.
Rehoming Assistance: Not only do we help individuals understand companion parrots, we will, if needed, assist them in choosing a shelter or sanctuary in which to place their parrot(s), or aid in the re-homing of their parrot(s).
Networking: We work in conjunction with private individuals as well as fellow avian welfare organizations, in the interest of helping parrots. Our aim is to create a matrix of like-minded people who are willing to work cooperatively in creating a better world for parrots, both in our homes and in the wild. Because of our exceptional networking skills, we may act as intermediaries when crisis arise, and provide assistance to other organizations in need.
