About Us

Founded in 1989 Foster Parrots, Ltd. is the largest avian rescue organization in the northeast U.S.A. We are accredited by The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and are a founding member of the country’s leading avian advocacy and information organization, The Avian Welfare Coalition. Foster Parrots has worked collaboratively with organizations like The Jane Goodall Institute, Born Free USA and World Animal Protection in our quest to bring assistance to captive parrots who have long suffered the consequences of pet trade exploitation and public misinformation.

For me, the sight of a parrot living alone, living in a cage, deprived of flight, miserably bored, breaks my heart. And the parrot’s too, perhaps.
— Jane Goodall, Foster Parrots Supporter
