About Our Rescue Group:

Wilton Parrot Rescue was founded in January 2010 in Wilton, Connecticut and is a small home-based rescue. Our goal is to find permanent loving homes for surrendered or rescued companion parrots. We work with a limited number of birds at a time to ensure individualized attention for each bird and greater adoption success. In our first year, we successfully placed and found forever homes for 25 birds.

Although we specialize in rehabilitating (if necessary) and re-homing larger parrots, all birds will be considered for surrender on a space available basis. Surrendered birds must have the potential to be re-homed as Wilton Parrot Rescue does not have the space or availability to take in sanctuary birds at this time. All birds coming into Wilton Parrot Rescue must have current medical records ensuring the bird is free of any contagious avian diseases.

Why should you adopt?

birds can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a bird for sale or finding a bird breeder, adopting a bird from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a bird to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a bird. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your bird needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a bird. There are different types of birds including African Grey, Amazon, Brotogeris, Budgie, Button Quail, Caique, Canary, Chicken, Cockatiel, Cockatoo, Conure, Dove, Duck, Eclectus, Emu, Finch, Goose, Guinea Fowl, Kakariki, Lorikeet, Lovebird, Macaw, Mynah, Ostrich, Parakeet - Other, Parakeet - Quaker, Parrot - Other, Parrotlet, Peacock, Pheasant, Pigeon, Pionus, Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's), Quail, Rhea, Ringneck, Rosella, Softbill - Other, Swan, Toucan, and Turkey.
