Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work with an exotic bird? Have you ever been curious to learn about cockatoos, amazons, greys, or even macaws? Volunteering at Rhode Island Parrot Rescue is a great way to gain experience and work with many different species of parrots.

Our birds come from many varied situations but one thing they have in common is they all love attention! Your time at RI Parrot Rescue will be spent learning about the realities of having a companion parrot in the home, and, why they are now the 3rd most relinquished companion animal behind dogs/cats.

By volunteering at Rhode Island Parrot Rescue you allow us to continue helping these birds find loving homes and to continue in our mission to educate the public on their care. Young or old we have something for you to do!
Please go to RIParrots.org to view the general requirements and complete a Volunteer Application.
Thank You!

About Rhode Island Parrot Rescue

Location:

173 Washington Street, West Warwick, RI 02893, US

Mission Statement

Rhode Island Parrot Rescue, Inc. is a volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the rescue rehabilitation of unwanted, abused or abandoned parrots. Our mission is to educate people on the proper care of parrots and parrot-like birds, their specific physical and psychological needs, rescuing companion parrots from harmful or unwanted situations and rehabilitating, when necessary, unwanted, found, or injured naturalized (free-flying) parrots; and offering these birds to qualified homes for adoption.

Description

* Rescue: Birds are surrendered for a variety of reasons. Some come from loving homes and were loved enough to be surrendered. Others have been abused, neglected or their owners have become disinterested. We do not judge anyone who contacts us. We are here to make a positive difference by helping in any way we can.

* Rehabilitation: Upon surrender, each bird is evaluated and encouraged to eat a healthy pellet diet. Often, medical problems need treatment, which is provided by an avian veterinarian.

* Adoption: Birds that have been rehabilitated are available for adoption. We thoroughly screen potential adoptive homes with a detailed application, interviews and home visits before any bird is released. Follow-ups are also required.

* Education Services: One of our most important goals is to educate the public about exotic birds. We are available for on-site seminars and hold customized workshops at our facility.

We are in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Visits are by appointment and we are funded by public and private donations.
