Birds of Paradise Emergency Parrot Rescue


Birds of Paradise has long operated an emergency rescue program for distressed, abandoned and abused parrots.

We never have—nor ever will—turn our backs on a distressed parrot.

We exist to provide second chances for so many beautiful parrots who need a place to land when they find themselves in distress through no fault of their own.

Rescuing and providing the best care to our formerly abused and neglected parrots is vital. They deserve every ounce of dignity, love and care that we provide.
But we can’t provide for them without you.

A Short Video About Joe

This is a short video about Joe, a rescued blue & gold macaw. Joe is one of dozens of parrots rescued from a life of abuse and neglect in Ohio. The cruelty these parrots suffered shocked the avian community. This is the story of Joe's journey to a happy and dignified life at Birds of Paradise Sanctuary.

Protecting the Captive Parrot

As we recently completed two back-to-back emergency rescues for 46 distressed parrots, we see these events (collectively with our rescues dating back to 2011) as pieces of a bigger picture of the diminishing voice of the parrot, and shudder as to where this trend may be going.

Birds Eye View of a Rescue Event

Our "North Port 15" emergency rescue event started with a phone call from an individual desperately looking to place 15 parrots from a Florida home because—yet again—the unimaginable happened. A close relative had died suddenly and there was no plan in place for these innocent birds.

In August of 2011 our founder, Debbie Huckaby, encountered a heart-breaking situation that would change the course of her life. Dozens of parrots in Troy Ohio had been abandoned and were living in filth and extreme heat with no food and water.

Second Chances for Parrots

Debbie Huckaby was an invited speaker at the June Long Island Parrot Society meeting. She moved the crowd with her heart-felt second chances talk that included memorable soundbytes such as "I started asking myself... what if I could create a world where second chances for these birds was the norm?"
