Welcome to The Lucky Parrot Sanctuary!
Parrots are fantastic, incredible, charming creatures, endowed with strong emotions, and superior intelligence. They are the feathered equivalents of Chimpanzees and Dolphins. Parrots are also the most demanding and misunderstood of all companion animals. People don't understand what they are getting themselves into when they first purchase a parrot. The anticipated wonderful experience, often turns into something very different, and very sad, for both people and parrots; because of normal human events, illness, death, or something as simple as a new boy friend, a marriage, a new baby, a divorce, a move to a new home, and the poor bird must go. Sold to the next home, where history repeats itself, until 4 or 5 homes later, we, the sanctuaries, take in some of these rejected birds.
Most sanctuaries are overflowing, and therefore, many of these perfectly healthy parrots can potentially be destroyed, killed, because there are too few loving homes for them. A better balance must be found between current levels of parrot over-breeding and the existing, present day over-population of parrots.
