Rhode Island Parrot Rescue, Inc. is an all 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.
* 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.
There is an established routine for bird care which is easy to follow, allows everyone to contribute from their first visit and the birds needs are central to Lazicki's focus. The birds are being attended to by such dedicated volunteers that interacting with them was a real pleasure.
I've had birds (parrots) for 22 years yet I still learn from volunteering at Lazicki's, was able to offer a recommendation while being delightfully impressed at the level of care these birds receive.
It's rewarding to contribute to this outstanding organization efforts of rescue, rehabilition, education programs and adoption to qualified homes.
Lazicki's Bird House and Rescue is a wonderful place to make a difference in the lives of such amazing and intelligent creatures that are more than just their beauty. Come see for yourself!
This is a great place to volunteer! If you love birds or even have one, you will learn so much, even if you thought you already knew. A great group of people! We work hard sometimes but have lots if fun too! This is the best opportunity to help a parrot find their forever homes! A great feeling!
This is a great place to volunteer. It is great to work with the birds and with the other people. I like interacting with the birds, but there are many other tasks to do here if you are not sure about exotic birds, yet. I drive over two hours to get here, but it is worth the trip. The people are great and caring.
You'll meet great people and great birds, here.

I have been a part of this organization for almost 2 years. You will never find a more dedicated, caring, giving group of people then you find at this organization. The love and care that goes into each & every bird is incredible.
The fundraisers are always a blast with great raffles!!!
