We are a not-for-profit, no-kill parrot rescue, rehabilitation, education and adoption shelter.
We are accredited by the Association of Avian Rescue Organizations (AARO) and licensed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Welfare to provide for adoptions. We are also a member of the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Currently, you can meet our pets online at http://rescuethebirds.org/content/section/6/32/. Once you have submitted an application and had both a phone interview and home inspection, you will be invited to come meet some of the birds in person.
Our Adoption Process...
All of our animals have an individualized fee associated with their adoption which is based upon the vet fees incurred. Please contact us for an adoption application. There will then be a phone interview, home inspection, and then you will visit with the birds to help determine which bird is appropriate for your home.
