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
Davey is a 35+ year old male yellow-naped amazon. He has some mobility issues and trouble gripping with his feet. His cage is set up with low perches strategically placed to make it easier for him to get around. Davie is a stoic fellow and a little reserved but would make a wonderful companion for the right person. If you're interested in meeting Davey, please contact us to set up an appointment.
Our next trim session is Sunday, August 8th with appointment times available between 11:30 - 2:30. We do not charge a fee to do trims, but donations are greatly appreciated and encouraged. Please call or text Dani to schedule your appointment at (608) 516-4529
We are asking everyone to wear a mask and bring their birds in a travel cage or carrier. Once you arrive for your appointment, please text or call Dani to let us know you're here. A volunteer will come to your vehicle and retrieve your bird for their trim. We will return your bird to you in your vehicle after the trim.
