  • Friendships

  • Why?

    The Refuge provides a safe place for parrots that have to be re-homed due to unfortunate situations that sometimes arise.

Our Mission Is Simple

To work in joint cooperation with all avian rescue groups to try to eliminate the need for rescue groups by educating the public about aviculture issues. Until that is accomplished, we will provide a sanctuary for those unfortunate parrots that are in need of a home.
