HELP A PARROT!
Our organization could not operate without donations from bird lovers like you! If you are able, please click the button above to donate to our cause. All money received goes directly to the birds at our facility, and there is no amount too small. Reoccurring payments in any denomination can also be set up using the button above.
We have recently reopened for tours! As of January 2024, we will be allowing tours again. Tours are only available for potential adopters, surrenderers, volunteers, or donors. We do not do tours for entertainment purposes, as our birds are more than just a novelty - they are living creatures who are very sensitive to changes in their environment.
Interested in coming out for a tour? Email us your name, party size, and reason for wanting a tour, as well as days and times that work for you. We are open by appointment, so we do not have set hours of operation.
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!

Coco is an approximately 14 year old assumed female Severe Macaw.
Coco loves to talk and most definitely about herself! "HI COCO!" is one of the first things you'll hear walking into the Macaw room
Coco enjoys music and she'll even try to sing along and dance!
Coco enjoys scritches but she might take a little bit to warm up to you at first.
To meet Coco, fill out an application!
