Located in West Michigan, we are a non-profit, home-based parrot rescue. Our emphasis is on flock dynamics, raw, whole-food nutrition and a relaxed atmosphere. Each bird that comes into our home receives the absolute best avian vet care, diet, enrichment and "instructions" from the other birds in our flock. Birds landing here will find a soft, safe and intimate environment, be able to relax and show us their personality.
Ken and Nancee have a combined 50 years of experience dealing with parrots of all species. Our very first parrot together, a Yellow-Naped Amazon named Charlie, is still with us. Nancee began caring for parrots in 1983 with an Amazon and a pair of Brotogeris parakeets. We have seen the avian community ebb and flow throughout the years, and the end result has brought us here, providing a place for parrots in need. There is a special place in our hearts for the special-needs birds; Ken is extremely talented with providing custom enclosures and playgrounds to suit every handicap.
Every bird that comes in to our rescue will be placed in a roomy cage, and after a vet check, will be placed in with the rest of the flock. They are not kept in cages in a separate room; they will have a hanging playground, tons of appropriate cage toys, lots of windows and an outside aviary to enjoy. Our experience has taught us that the other flock members are better teachers than we are!
But don't just take our word for it; here is what one of our adopters said:
"Ken & Nancee love what they do and that is very apparent from the moment you meet them. They are excited to tell you about their birds quirks, abilities & preferences and the progress they've made since coming into their rescue. They take great pride in hand making toys and challenging their birds development on a daily basis. When we hit a hiccup, they went so far out of their own way to make our adoption of a special needs Amazon possible because they felt that we were the right home for him and the bond there was very apparent. I cannot thank them enough for dedicating their lives to helping birds in need and very much taking the time and doing the research to make sure a proper placement (forever home!) is made."
