Mission & Purpose

Mission Statement:

The Parrot Outreach Society is a non-profit organization whose sole concern is parrot welfare in captivity and conservation of wild parrots. We are an outreach and placement program which places into safe custody, parrots which are abandoned, abused, or in need of a home for any reason.

Parrots are intelligent, highly social and complex beings with a life span of up to 80 years. The individual bird’s best interest and well being of the present flock will determine if a parrot is accepted into the organization.

We actively support networking with other parrot welfare groups, animal welfare organizations, the veterinary community, conservation organizations and the general public. Education is of the utmost importance concerning the well being of a parrot and its ability to successfully live with its human companions.

In conjunction with Bird Gardens of Naples, our sanctuary mission is to provide a permanent, safe, loving and disease free environment for unadoptable psittacine species. Bird gardens of Naples will provide shelter, medical and rehabilitative care to displaced and unadoptable parrots in a natural environment for those who have failed to thrive in a family setting. Each parrot will be evaluated individually, before placement into sanctuary, for its suitability as a sanctuary resident. Public education will be used to turn uninformed impulse buying opportunities into well informed adoption opportunities in hopes of eradicating the homeless parrot population.

 

Standards of Care:

Parrot Outreach Society is a 501©(3), non-profit organization. We are a NO KILL organization working to create awareness of parrots throughout the world by supporting international conservation efforts and local public education regarding pet parrots.  We currently maintain 7 programs: education, rescue, rehabilitation, foster care, safe haven for parrots, adoption and conservation. Bird Gardens of Naples will provide sanctuary to those birds deemed unadoptable in accordance with our no kill philosophy.
