The VisionGiving parrots a brighter tomorrow.


We will continue to educate the public to the plight of homeless/unwanted parrots in hopes of diminishing the need for parrot rescues. We will continue to expand to meet the ever increasing need for placement of homeless parrots as our population ages and the life span of parrots continues increase until such time as the need for our services diminishes.

The Mission StatementWe put parrots first.



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.

A huge thank you to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for their Immediate Impact Grant to help us purchase an AICU unit for our birds! This is a critical care unit that will also supply oxygen for sick birds. It can be very difficult to find an avian vet on weekends and this will allow us to provide appropriate care until the vet can be seen, along with the ability to care for birds who might need nebulizers as well .
