Parrot Haven, located in Lindenhurst, NY was created in July of 1999, as part of the Rescue Operation of Parrot Fancier's Club.
There are so many cases of injured and homeless parrots whose owners no longer want them. This may be due to a death in the family, birth, divorce, relocation, or simply that the owners lost interest. Many people purchase birds as an "impulse buy." What happens to these poor creatures? They didn't ask to be put in this situation of being farmed out from home to home.
Many of them are in need of medical attention, food, shelter and most of all, love and a permanent home.
It is the Parrot Haven's policy that no bird will be turned away. There can be many costs associated with caring for all these birds. This would include lab and veterinary fees, cages, food, medical supplies, medication and toys, to name a few items. Monies are taken in through our events, annual picnic and raffles.
With these funds, it is Parrot Haven's goal to be able to provide these birds with a "safe haven" in which to live until they can be adopted.
Not all birds are adoptable due to their disabilities and are permanent Parrot Haven residents. They need your continued support. Help us help them.
Baby & Buddy- Came to Parrot Haven in 2009 after their dad was diagnosed with Cancer.
Polly- has had a sad history. Two previous owners have passed away and now he is a permanent resident. He has cataracts and is blind. (Blood work has confirmed he is a male but he has retained his original name)
PARROTHEAD- My dad had to give me up when he had to have heart surgery. Dad felt very comfortable leaving me at PARROT HAVEN with other macaws. Dad has open visitations rights and can visit at any time.
Baby- Came in from Delaware in 2000, paralyzed after a fall. Baby attends all the Parrot Haven events and is well known within the community.
Nikki- Came in 2000 after he'd been beaten with a spatula and had both of his legs broken. His legs never healed properly and has difficulty walking. Nikki also attends all events.
BOTH BIRDS ENJOY THE ATTENTION AT THE EVENTS.
