HELP A PARROT
Don't buy or breed,
adopt a bird in need!
As we continue to work through the covid-19 pandemic, we will continue to take precautions and follow CDC recommendations. All visitations are by appointment only. Please call us at 608-302-1732 to schedule an appointment if you would like to visit our facility.
Volunteers are the life blood of any non-profit organization, but are especially important to us and our birds for numerous reasons. If you're interested in In-Shelter Care of Birds, Education and Outreach at stores and events, or serving on a Special Events planning committee, please contact us today! We need you!

Featured Feathered Friend
Oscar is currently the sanctuary's oldest Amazon at an estimated 51 years old. While Oscar's old age may be off-putting to some, he still has the spunk and attitude of a young Amazon. Oscar enjoys spending time on people's arm and having his head scritched. He loves his heated perches, as he does have sore feet from previously having bumblefoot, but he is able to move around and grip his perches just fine. Oscar would do best with a patient home who is willing to take their time to navigate the quirks of an elderly Amazon. Could you be Oscar's forever home?
Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Restrictions
Trim days are canceled until further notice. The Wisconsin DATCP avian flu restrictions have been extended to all domestic birds, including pet birds. This means domestic birds are not allowed to be brought to live events where there are other birds. Please keep your birds safe indoors and do not allow them to come into contact with wild birds or any birds that are not already part of your household.
For more information, please refer to the DATCP website.
As of right now, we do not have any upcoming events planned. Check back soon, or like us on Facebook to stay up-to-date!
