I like the way that the Parrot Posse keeps donors informed of exactly where and what their donations went for. Even better, I enjoy seeing the photos of birds, before and after, they were helped by the Parrot Posse. You can donate a little or a lot -- The Parrot Posse will always make the best use of any donation.
What I love best about Parrot Posse is every penny is accounted for, PUBLICALLY. The auction items are always exactly as described, or even better in person. I love knowing that my hard-earned money is actually helping birds and not being used for anything else.
I am a donor and recipient of this organization. As a former active rescue and now Sanctuary we received food, treats, toys and other needed items for the birds in our foster care system and in our permanent sanctuary. The group’s goals are to spread the impact of their effort across the country to multiple deserving organizations and it is amazing to be part of the effort and to have received timely and much needed help myself.
The PArrot Posse is my go to charity for birds. They pool donations and buy needed supplies so rescued birds can be properly cared for. They are totally transparent with how the donations are used. A great resource for the avian community!
I don't know of any other nonprofit that meets the standards The Parrot Posse meets. The Posse is a caring community of parrot lovers, many of whom have been friends for years, who together rise to the occasion whenever there are parrots in need.
None of the money given to The Parrot Posse goes to the organization's directors or president or staff. Everyone working for the Posse donates their time, and all donations go to buy food and toys and cages and vet care for birds in need. They partner with parrot supply companies to stretch every dollar as far as it will go.
The Posse is completely transparent: every dollar is accounted for.
Visit their Facebook page, support them through their auctions or through cash donations.
Parrot Posse and all it’s wonderful members around the world DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of birds. It’s the only group I donate to for birds because I know where every penny goes – TO THE BIRDS in need. We get to follow stories of the birds that are helped, see them recover, learn to play and start to live again. There’s nothing better than that!
To my knowledge, The Parrot Posse is the ONLY avian welfare organization whose mission is to assist not only in the event of cruelty and seizure cases but to also provide support to credible and ethical parrot welfare organizations across the country. Our facility cares for 170 parrots and the budget is always tight. The generous donations of food, treats and extras allow us to continue to provide the best of care for our parrots.
This group is unbelievable in what it does for the bird community. Always there helping with food, cages and toys when there is a rescue. You know where all the donated items and monies are at all times.
This is my absolute favorite charity. Parrot rescue and rehab is the cause I care most about. Dogs and cats have thousands of organizations throughout the US to advocate for them. Parrots don't have this degree of advocacy even though they live longer and turn over from home to home, several times on average, in their long lives. The Parrot Posse combines the power of a handful of very dedicated volunteer leaders, a few thousand supporters who help donate and fundraise, and a network of caring and committed retailers, manufacturers, and other partners who provide steep discounts on parrot cages, food, toys, other supplies, and vet care. Together, we have buying power worth about 3x greater than paying full retail and we use this to provide support and supplies for thousands of parrots who were abused, neglected, homeless, are in rescues, or are otherwise in need!
I’m confident giving my money donations to the Parrot Posse. Parrot Posse is totally transparent with donations showing where every dollar is spent. Posse works with certain businesses that allow the Posse to stretch each dollar given as much as double and triple at times. Posse comes to the aid in times of disaster, during the hurricanes last year they partnered with a birdfood business to deliver and route bird food to those in need! The Posse is always giving and is always at the ready to assist during confiscations. You can support Posse with monetary donations or donate goodies for their many Auctions throughout the year. See Parrot Posse on FB, join us today and help parrots all over the US.
I've been a member of the Posse for a few years, and we as a group accomplish amazing things. EVERY cent donated from online auctions and fundraisers for birds is accounted for, and the donors/recipients/items/winning amounts are always published. There are NO administrative costs - all of the work for donations and bookkeeping (lots) is done voluntarily. Any recipient of food, vet bill coverage, toys, etc., is thoroughly vetted and most also post photos of their birds enjoying whatever is sent to them. If you'd like to be part of a group that really makes a difference, join us and see how the funds really add up to a lot of good work!
