What to look for in a Legitimate Rescue or Sanctuary

As Parrots become more popular, so has the increase in the number of Rescues, and Sanctuary facilities in the U.S., Canada, and overseas.

It can be difficult to evaluate a rescue if you’re looking to surrender a bird, adopt a bird, or volunteer, especially since sometimes our only tool is a website. While there are many upstanding and reputable rescues, there are also plenty of rescues who are either scam artists, or who have gotten in way over their heads and are cutting corners.

Before you relinquish your hard earned dollars, time or a Precious Parrot to any organization, it is very important to do your research and make sure that the organization is ethical and will be around for a long time.

Here is a collection of articles that will help you in making sure that the Rescue or Sanctuary you choose is legitimate.
