Parrots are our passion and our own small flock brings us joy every day. We have committed our lives to the health and well-being of every parrot. We don't claim or pretend to know it all, but we do our best every single day to make the best decisions for our birds. We look to our close-knit extended bird family and avian community to help us continue to grow, learn, and become a better parrot rescue. We believe in promoting education, respect, and a sense of unity with the avian community, including parrot lovers, parrot caretakers, sanctuaries, rescues, and breeders. We feel that experiencing the joy of bringing one of these amazing creatures into your home and family will change your life. We believe whole-heartedly that even our little, home-based rescue can make a difference and are completely devoted to doing just that!
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located in beautiful (and tiny) Bellaire, Michigan, about 45 miles northeast of Traverse City in the northern lower penninsula. We invite potential adopters to make appointments to come visit our available birds and are planning a "Parrot Block Party" this summer (2013) to show off our feathered buddies, promote parrot education and allow an up-close look at what we do and who we are!
Our Adoption Process:
Our Adoption Process relies on open communication and mutual respect. We require an Adoption Application, telephone interviews, a home visit, and a contract. We are different because we focus on building relationships to foster continued communication, extensive follow-up care, and invite each adopter into our extended bird family. We take no pleasure in "snooping" and try not to be any more intrusive than is necessary. Our birds are our first priority and our goal is to bring parrots together with their permanent families to create lasting, healthy, and loving relationships. We work hard to engender a sense of community and family and feel this helps us to be successful in placing our birds in the right homes.
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.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
