Programs: MAARS provides permanent sanctuary, behavioral consultations for parrots and their guardians, public and private education, & and a limited foster & adoption program.

MAARS’ core mission is to care for birds that because of mistreatment or reaction to captivity are not suited to an in home or typical shelter environment
MAARS' second function is to educate the public and people who already live with birds about proper bird care. We feel that education about bird care and behavior helps people to provide the best homes possible for the birds already in captivity.

MAARS is a no-kill, non-profit organization funded solely through adoption fees and donations. We are based in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) area and serve Minnesota and the surrounding Midwest area. We also work extensively on a national level in cooperation with other organizations that share our mission.
MAARS purchased a new sanctuary facility for it's flock of 85 permanent residents in 2009. Since that time we have made many improvements to our new building to suit the needs of our flock & provide them with the best life possible, some of these upgrades include: a new roof installed in 2012, new lighting fixtures throughout the facility that mimic the full-spectrum light they would have if they were outdoors, & multiple room redesigns to suit each of our groups dynamics & personalities.
MAARS has placed over 2000 birds into stable, loving homes since it's inception in 1999.
