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!

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.
