THANK YOU FOR HELPING US BRING OUR VISION TO LIFE!
Under My Wing Avian Refuge exists to provide captive birds with individualized care, the companionship of a flock, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe free flight haven dedicated to their well-being.
We educate the public of the complex needs of parrots in captivity and the crisis facing them
The parrot’s habitations are closed to the general public but opened by appointment for educational purposed only to both public and private schools.
The Sanctuary is currently home to 100 captive abandoned parrots, retired from “pet” or “companion animal” or saved from our local animal enforcement organizations many of whom suffer long-term health and behavioral issues.
The Sanctuary employs a fully integrated team of veterinarians and caregivers who provide high-quality care by using positive reinforcement and meet the needs of each bird in our care.
Through education and public awareness, we seek to alleviate all animals suffering and help eliminate use of exotic birds as pets, their exploitation in show business and alleviate over-burdened parrot rescues by not emphasizing on the over rated adoption slogans for captive-bred birds due to the grown epidemic of bird abuse and hoarding scenarios all across our Country and beyond.
Our vision’s readiness is crucial to animal welfare especially for the unwanted, abused, disabled, elderly and the parrots left to chance 10, 30, 50 years from now as well as; educating and preparing the youth, to care for the unwanted parrots lives that have a life expectancy to 80+ years of age, surpassing us and today's human generation.
Under My Wing Avian Refuge is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
