Parrots are our thing!

aka PRH   |   Marietta, GA   |  www.papayagorescuehouse.org

Mission

Papayago Rescue House exists as a nonprofit 501(c)(3), Georgia Department of Agriculture inspected shelter, to support the wellbeing and maintenance of parrots through rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, and rehoming. To better serve parrots in our community, PRH works to increase knowledge of parrots within the community, provide mentoring and training to cope with parrot ownership to lessen the need for families to give up their birds to community facilities not equipped to handle bird requirements and behavior. To improve the care of parrots through education of newer information and strategies to decrease owner surrenders, birds "set free", and to improve chances for success for the family and the bird.

Notes from the nonprofit

hey are long-lived if they survive the lack of proper nutrition, engagement, space, vetting, and housing. 85% of parrots are rehomed within their first 2 years Nearly 100% by the time they are in their early 20s 3rd most popular pet in the world (if you don't count freshwater fish) Species that have complex or demanding requirements needing skillful and knowledgeable caretakers who are prepared to commit significant time and/or resources to animal care will reach an “overpopulation” at a lower total number than species requiring less specialized care. The point at which animals kept as human “companions” reach “overpopulation” is determined not by the number of animals but by the number of responsible, qualified caretakers available to care for the type of animal in question. One home averages 4 birds Lack of knowledge of the time, care, and needs they require. Statistics show that only $40 a year is spent on pet birds. We have nothing but the opportunity to grow awareness.

What we aim to solve

Supporting the community with the issues facing them having captive long-lived parrots in their homes.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hardship Boarding

Allows the support of families to keep their birds through tough times, loss of home, job by boarding their bird and assuming care and cost until such time as they can resume care for their bird.

Population(s) Served
Families
Adults

Assist older bird owners in the demands of companion bird care. Includes cage cleaning at their home, nail and wing trims, toys at low to no cost, and food.

Population(s) Served
Seniors
Retired people

Papayago Rescue House (PRH) intends to create a measure for birds that escaped home or car, to be returned to guardian (RTG). Reduce risk of theft by taking of birds. Increase data opportunities for long-lived parrots and their previous homes. The goal is to get found or stolen parrots home to their guardians as quickly as possible to prevent exposure to life-threatening stress, environmental factors, and lack of vet care since many shelters do not have the budget or experience to ensure vet oversight. Many shelters, animal control, and other species rescues are unaware of the needs and demands of caring for parrots within their standards of care.

We want to increase the chances of birds becoming nanochipped as part of the adoption process in the state of Georgia and to offer low-cost to free chipping for their birds through a very similar program used for dogs and cats. We will use the terms "parrot(s)" and "bird(s)" interchangeably.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
