In cases of hoarding or natural disasters, everyone pitches in to help dogs and cats, parrots are often forgotten.
The Parrot Posse is there to send food and supplies to help parrots in those situations and also to reputable parrot rescues. All donations are accounted for with full transparency.
I’m proud to be a supporter and glad I can do my little part to help parrots.

The Parrot Posse is a wonderful non-profit that helps birds all across the country by donating food, toys, cages and other supplies. One hundred percent of all money taken in goes to help birds. There are no administrative costs since the admin donate their time. They search for the best deals and sales to make sure every last dime of donated money is stretched to buy the most supplies to help birds in need. The Parrot Posse has auctions throughout the year with all items donated. Administrators even use their own money to buy unique items to put in the auctions. Thousands of birds and their owners have been helped over the years due to the generosity of this amazing group.

As a small parrot rescue in Northern Lower MI (Gaylord) we have been supported many times by the Parrot Posse, with donations of air cleaners, filters for the cleaners, and food, nuts and toys for the parrots in our care. We are very grateful and humbled by the generosity shown us, for the parrots, and I can't begin to tell you, what a positive difference this has made in the quality of their lives. This is one great and transparent organization, that depends on donations from caring people all over the U.S. and beyond. There is no greedy CEO or Chairperson, grabbing up funds for their own use, this is an organization that selflessly uses 100% of the donations for parrots in need, no matter how large or small the need may be. This is so refreshing in this day and age. Thank you so much for helping us continue to do what we do, caring for the surrendered, unwanted, and often abused and neglected parrots. Please know that any and every amount donated helps, even $5. or $10., as it all adds up, and helping a caged animal to a better life, is so rewarding.

They help lots of parrot rescue places. They are discreet when needed. It’s all about helping the birds. Some birds come from horrible conditions and The Parrot Posse sends food, cages or whatever is needed to the nonprofit organization with the birds. Thank you. Parrot Posse.

While I am fortunate enough to not have had to be a recipient of the immense generosity of TheParrotPosse I know those who have.
Their work benefits birds all over. Birds taken from horrendous environments (feces filled cages, no food/water, rodent and insect infestations and worse).
Birds that ended up in rescues/shelters, or that were in bad situations due to natural disaster (wildfire, flood, hurricane).
The Posse members give generously in many ways including straight donation, opportunity drawings, purchases from vendors who "pay it forward".
The Posse uses 100% of the donated funds/materials for direct care to many birds all over the country.
I support TheParrotPosse 100%.
If I could give this organization TEN stars I would!!

I said this years ago & I'll say it again. I have been a member of the Parrot Posse for years & NO organization does what they do, by continuing to support regular non-profit parrot rescues with supplies for their residents to assisting with seizures that occur nationwide when exotic birds are involved by providing cages, food & enrichment to the animal control facilities that are waiting for disposition &/or court cases, some which continue over a long period of time. NO OTHER GROUP DOES THIS. The Parrot Posse is unique, non-profit & accounts for every penny spent towards a common goal: enriching the lives of all captive birds, big or small, no matter the situation. ❤️

The Parrot Posse is a phenomenal organization that helps rescues/re-homes every step of the way. For emergencies seizures the Posse provides appropriate housing, enrichment and nourishment to aid these parrots in transition.

The Posse has helped Companion Parrots Re-homed throughout the years by supplying nuts and other nourishment and a vast amount of parrot toys and paraphernalia for the birds. Every time we receive a package it is like Christmas and I get to play Santa!

Thank you Judith Archer and the Parrot Posse for all you do for us!

This amazing group of people has been helping parrots more years than I can remember. Before there was the posse, there was a network of people finding ways to improve the lives of parrots. They shared veterinary resources, helpful tips, recipes, toy safety, and called on each other for assistance in times of emergencies. They helped this sweet girl find a permanent home with us about 20 years ago. They heard this bird had been bounced around from place to place. After suffering a broken wing from being housed in a cage far too small for a macaw, she found another home but they couldn’t keep her. I was nearby and had a cage available so….she’s been with us ever since. A busy, funny, happy, and healthy bird! Any parrot that is touched by the Parrot Posse is one lucky bird.

The Parrot Posse has been helping parrots since long before it became an official 501©3. The welfare of parrots has always been the number one mission of these folks. Unlike dogs and cats, parrots require a different set of care conditions and not all animal control first responders have a lot of experience or items on hand suitable for their needs. The Posse researches, reaches out to supply partners, qualified veterinarians, facilitates the foster process, and finds the best possible ways to help. Over the years, I’ve donated, advocated, and even adopted. They are 100% transparent with donations and purchases. They’ve worked hard to build a network of avian-related partners who step up time and again to help parrots in need.

The Posse has helped countless numbers of rescues during times of distress and in normal times and I'm always in awe of their ability to find the right things and get them there....

I myself am grateful to have have received help from them a few times. One such notable time was for my large flock of birds that largely are unhandleable after a devastating health issue that sent me to the hospital for 10 days and changed my life. They sent food so we didn't have to worry about feeding them during my recovery and trying to sort out the hospital bill.

More recently I was contacted by a friend who has been displaced by a fire and her two birds wound up here as fosters. They will be going back, but nothing came with them (cages/toys/ perches food anything) Their home was a total loss. When I contacted The Posse they didn't hesitate to say "yes" to a simple request of a few toys! I'm so thankful that again they've helped.

I'm always in awe of the great work they do.

I have been with the Posse since the beginning when we rescued a blind bird from a bad situation. It provides a way for many of us to combine our small donations to help more birds in a totally transparent way. Every penny accounted for and every penny spent for the birds. I do not know of any other group like it. It sets the example and provides a way to make a true difference.

Ginger's Parrot Rescue is a 501c3 Non-Profit located in Casa Grande, Arizona and specializes in smaller parrots with a capacity of 85. The largest we take in is African Grey size, and the smallest is finch. In order to care for all these birds we rely on donations to provide the necessary funding. Sometimes, there just isn't enough coming in. That's where The Parrot Posse comes in and rescues my rescue! They provide the birds here with great food, toys and supplies that help us keep going! They work with vendors that have a heart for parrot rescues too, like My Bird Store! I can't say enough about all they have done for our rescue. Thank you Parrot Posse!

The Parrot Posse makes a real difference in the lives of parrots across the country, and are amazing to work with. It helps with seizure cases by making sure organizations have the supplies they need to care for birds when an unexpected, large group comes in. It also sends food, toys, and other supplies regularly to parrot non-profits who need them to care for the birds in their adoption or sanctuary programs. They listen to what organizations need for the birds in their care, and then help by providing it. I not only am involved in an organization that receives support from the Posse, but I personally am a supporter of the Posse myself, too. I encourage all parrot lovers to get involved in the Posse. By helping the Posse, you help countless organizations that are out there helping birds. Together, we can help more birds. Thanks!

Over the years, the Parrot Posse has donated THOUSANDS of pounds of nutritious parrot food, toys, enrichment items and aviary supplies to Noah's Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center & Sanctuary, Inc. in Locust Grove, GA. Providing a top of the line forever home for our 300+ rescued parrots means offering them a variety of premium foods ($$$) and plenty of opportunities to interact with their environment through enrichment. WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE PARROT POSSE, WE COULD NOT RESCUE AND PROVIDE OUTSTANDING CARE FOR THE VOLUME OF PARROTS THAT WE DO. Furthermore, the Parrot Posse is impeccable with their finances. Operating a nonprofit myself, I know the careful, constant effort that is required to maintain squeaky clean financials and how important this is for long term success. The Parrot Posse's financials are more transparent than any nonprofit I know of, which is why I personally donate to them as well! They are truly a champion for the thousands of parrots rescued from abuse and neglect in this country.

We are a nonprofit here in Bend Oregon, Second Chance Bird Rescue, West Coast Div. The Parrot Posse has help us out many times these past two years, which has kept us open to do what we do. Help exotic birds that are surrendered for one reason or another. To help the ones that we can find new forever homes or keep the ones here that are unadoptable. They are here to help others and without their help a lot of birds would have gone without new cages and food to feed them. They are here to help the birds found in hoarder situations too.

I support the Posse because they help birds in need. Ever see a horrible hoarding story, or one about someone abusing animals? Chances are the Posse has too and after reaching out to the shelter holding the animals to find out what is needed, whether it’s food, cages or toys, and sent it. A shelter or foster gets in a sick bird needing expensive medical care, the Posse is there to help with the vet bills. I feel good sending them money because I know it will go where it’s needed, after Judith has squeezed every last cent out of it. Just a great charity!

The Parrot Posse is a remarkable group of people who have been brought together by their love and concern for our feathered loved ones. As a supporter, donor, “Parrent” and now Board Member, I have the opportunity to participate in supporting many avian rescues and sanctuaries, as well as governmental animal welfare agencies throughout the country.
On a day to day basis and in emergency situations the Posse provides help with cages, perches, food, toys, veterinary care and special needs equipment to first responders and caregivers. Additionally, there is ongoing assistance for selected rescues and sanctuaries.
The Posse strives to carry out its administrative and service functions with the highest level of honesty and integrity. The administrators provide total financial transparency, as well as detailed accounts of the avian rescue services provided to its beneficiaries. Additionally, the Posse is a totally volunteer group, with no overhead expenses. All expenses are born outside of donations and every dollar donated goes direct to the benefit of the birds. The Parrot Posse’s function as a provider of support to the hands on rescuers and caregivers is somewhat unique and is of the utmost necessity to meet the needs of the avian world. Thank you Posse for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your awesome mission.

The Parrot Posse goes above and beyond to provide support to parrot specific rescue organizations who by and large, receive less funding and attention, in comparison to dog and cat rescues (who also need funds, but have a higher profile for fundraising). The Posse has miniscule administrative costs, so the majority of the fund raised by its members, go directly toward its mission, providing needed food and supplies to reputable parrot rescues across the nation, allowing them to stretch their tight budgets to care for the parrots in their care. The Posse also assist in providing food, supplies, cages and advice on parrot care, when requested by animal control departments, when parrots are seized in cases of extreme abuse and neglect. The Parrot Posse fills a critical niche in ensuring that rescued parrots receive the care they need.

They have and still so help the rescue I volunteer at and we appreciate everything they do to help. Without the Posse these birds would not have a chance, because most rescues could not afford to help all these poor birds.
It is sad what some of them have to go though but with the Posse's help they have a better life. The Posse works very hard to raise money to be able to help with all this. They help provide food, toys, cages, and whatever else they can.

The Parrot Posse helps other nonprofit parrot rescues and government agencies involved in hoarding cases. Literally every penny raised goes to help parrots. There is no overhead. I am a donor and a recipient, as the Posse just paid vet bills on 4 parrots I am fostering on their behalf. Much more of the Posse’s money goes to sending food, toys, and cages to non-parrot rescues who have custody of parrots due to a hoarding situation, and food and toys to help other rescues.

The Parrot Posse does amazing work to help birds in need. It is not a rescue, but instead supports rescue organizations as well as local authorities by providing needed food, toys, and cages when needed. When hurricanes have left parrots with no safe place to be, the Parrot Posse has stepped up to help. When hoarding or the disability of caretakers has resulted in seizures of birds, the Posse has stepped up.

No one involved with the Posse is paid for their services. The founder works hard to get discounts and donation so that every penny contributed to the organization is pinched until it squeals! And every transaction is transparent. Money is raised; it is used to purchase items that are shipped to help parrots, and then the purchases and shipments are carefully documented to anyone who chooses to follow the Posse’s activities. It is without a doubt one of the two most selfless and ethical non-profits I know of. The other is very, very small.

For a number of years, I was a keyworker with the Combined Federal Campaign. From that work, I know that there are many non-profits that actually use only a very small percentage of their receipts in direct furtherance of their non-profit purpose. The Posse uses 100% of its receipts in direct furtherance of its purpose.

I am proud to be a supporter of the Parrot Posse and its work. I wish all non-profits used the contributions received as thoroughly and efficiently as does the Posse.

Without Judith Richmond Arther's advice more than 25+ years ago, I would never have been able to rehab my very first harlequin macaw. Such a traumatized bird, removed from a horrible hoarder home. Judith gave me the advice and more importantly, the confidence to manage a very difficult bird. I still have Jack, the harlequin macaw and we muddle through life. She's pretty funny and hysterical. She ad libs comments to conversations that are relevant and on topic. But Judith was our first saving grace, telling me I could do it, even though Jack was my first bird. I guess I'm the testament at how great Judith is at teaching others, because here we are 25+ years later and Jack has her forever home. Without Judith's advice, I might have given up!.

The Parrot Posse does so much for our sanctuary, (Tallgrass Parrot Sanctuary, Inc) in the way of donations of parrot food, nuts, caging and toys. It makes our lives here so much easier!

The Parrot Posse has been not only supportive of, but has been the backbone of our parrot rescue, Macaw and Cockatoo Rescue of New Mexico, for many years. From sending toys, nuts, food, cages, and lifesaving medical equipment to helping pay for testing, treatment and surgeries for our rescued parrots, this group of dedicated volunteers and donors has contributed to saving the lives of hundreds of parrots with each and every donation that goes out. I could not even begin to total the astonishing number of parrots nation wide who have benefited in some way through this critically valuable nonprofit. I am amazed and humbled by how many volunteers and donors have joined the ranks, and continue to support the posse and our deserving foster birds year after year. This group is the real deal and every single dollar is used for the benefit of the birds with complete transparency of where dollars are spent. With so much responsibility already involved in caring for homeless pet birds, the posse takes on the burden of fundraising when it is needed most, freeing up time and energy for our staff to do what we do best - rescue, vet, rehab, and place these deserving and often misunderstood companion animals. Thank you Posse. We are forever humbly grateful to each and every one of your volunteers and donors. Thank you for showing up time and time again to prove that we are not in this alone. A special thanks to Judith and Chris for putting your all into keeping the posse running smoothly for so many years now!

Great organization. It all started years ago with a few friends pooling their money together to help birds in need. It just keeps getting bigger and better. In just the last few years The Parrot Posse has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in supplies and food to parrots in need, be it seizures, natural disasters, or just good rescues needing a helping hand here and there.

100% of donations go to the birds. It doesn't get any better than that!

This is the only charity I’ve ever donated to that actually accounts to the public for every dime they take in and where every dime is spent. They always post receipts and accountings. Whenever there is an emergency,which there have been many, The Parrot Posse is always there immediately to help the darling birds with anything they need from food to cages to toys and whatever they need to heal from their horrible ordeals. I can’t say enough about this group. And they can stretch a buck like no one else. I’d hate to think of what would have happened to all of the birds if the Posse hadn’t intervened. They help the often forgotten but the most needy animals, parrots.

This is an absolutely amazing group of compassionate parrot lovers. They are always at the front line to help birds in need. They have donated to countless parrot rescues, seizure cases and provided generous necessities for abused, neglected and rescued parrots. I'm so proud to be a member of the group and to be able to help and support when I can. Thank you Parrot Posse!

I do not know where many of the rescues in world be without this group of hard working people and supporters. There are alot of happy healthier parrots because of the sacrifice and work of this group.

The Parrot Posse is such an incredible organization!
I am a supporter, donor AND recipient.
I even have a monthly automatic donation set-up.
I have personally witnessed donations at work while volunteering with the Dekalb county parrot rescue effort in 2016.
304 live birds were seized by Dekalb authorities from a hoarder who was arrested and charged with 300+ counts of felony animal cruelty/abuse.
The Parrot Posse immediately had much needed supplies on the way including food, perches, cages, toys, disinfectant, dishes, etc.
I ended up adopting two of the cockatiels from the seizure that I named Mr. Pinky and Fluffy Popcorn.
I included a couple pictures of them.
We can’t thank The Parrot Posse enough for all the support and help! ❤️
