Florida Parrot Rescue works throughout the entire state of Florida, and is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer run, avian rescue dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of companion parrots. We understand that all parrot owners love their birds, and that finding a new home for their birds is used as a last option. Florida Parrot Rescue remains non-judgmental and supportive in your time of need. If you need to re-home your bird, Florida Parrot Rescue can help by offering your bird a safe place to stay and get veterinary care until the right home can be found!
All of our birds have been to one of the many avian veterinarians we use across the state of Florida. Each bird – regardless of size or species – has been given a full well bird check with either a full physical with a fecal gram stain and cultures or a physical with blood work (or both – this is determined by the veterinarian). Some birds have multiple veterinarian visits before they are placed up for adoption (depending on any health issues which need to be resolved before being cleared for adoption by the veterinarian). Any dogs or cats we have available for adoption will be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and on flea and heartworm medications.
Please be aware that adopting a bird is a lifelong responsibility, as many birds out-live their owners. We take special care in matching up our adoptable birds with the right owners to build lasting relationships and forever homes. Florida Parrot Rescue is licensed with the state of Florida as a non-profit and has attained 501c3 tax exempt status.
If you are not sure if having a parrot in your life is for you, or you would like to learn more about parrots, please check out our education section and also watch the PBS documentary Parrot Confidential to learn more about the plight of parrots in captivity. You can also read about Parrot Conservation in the New World by Nigel Collar and about Dimensions and Causes of the Parrot Conservation Crisis by N.J. Collar and A.T. Juniper.
Sometimes it’s better to be without for the right reasons, than to have, for all the wrong reasons.
