Target demographics: parrots and the people who care for them

Geographic areas served: New England

Programs: Foster Parrots, Ltd. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and protection of unwanted and abused companion parrots and other displaced captive exotic animals. Working on many levels to bring critical services to birds and animals in transition, we offer life-long sanctuary care for unadoptable parrots and other exotics at our permanent care sanctuary facility, The New England Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary, and provide adoption services for well-socialized parrots who desire human companionship. Our educational initiatives seek to raise standards of care for captive parrots by challenging harmful standards in the breeding industry, and by offering information to help parrots and people live mutually fulfilling lives together. A staunch advocate for parrots as wild animals, Foster Parrots village based conservation work in Guyana helps keep parrots and other animals safe in their natural habitat, and also embodies our ultimate message: Parrots are worth more in trees!

Our mission is to assist with the re-homing of unwanted parrots, offer advice and help to those with pet parrots, to act as an advocasy organization to educate the public about the difficulties facing captive parrots and those who impulsively purchase parrots without properly educating themselves about the degree of care required by these intelligent creatures.  Our sanctuary effort now houses over 600 birds and other animals such as Short Tail Central American fruit bats.  We also work to save habitat and parrots in the wilds of Guyana. We believe that "In Wildness is the true preservation of the World"
