Thousands of exotic birds are re homed each year due to mistreatment, abandonment or people's lack of understanding on how to properly care for them. The problem we aim to address is help the aforementioned birds find qualified homes they can thrive in.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to find a safe and loving home for exotic birds in Oregon and Washington and to provide education and support to our community.

Our strategies are based on our adoption process as well our bird care classes. An outline of our adoption process is below

1. All adopters must take our bird care class. In this class they will learn about proper care of birds, what to expect behaviorally and what it's really like living with a parrot. It also covers common medical issues in birds and common scenarios that cause harm to birds.
2. All adopters must pass a home inspection that is conducted by an approved volunteer or board member.
3. Adopters must meet with the bird they are interested in between 1 and 3 times. Sometimes more are required depending on the species and level of experience.
4. Adopters always have access to support and communication from the board. Bird ownership takes a village.

We put a lot into the this process because it ensures forever homes for our birds.

We have a network of very dedicated foster homes who care for all of the birds in the rescue. In addition our board is very active in all of the events and activities to get our birds adopted and cared for.

Our progress is ongoing. In 2019 we had a goal of getting the birds in rescue under 100 which so far we have accomplished. We have also maintained at least three adoptions per month which sounds a lot easier than it is. Our class numbers have significantly increased this year which tells us people are more aware of our organization and interested in bird care.
