How you Can Help.
We love volunteers! There are many small and large niches for help such as direct bird care, handyman services to stay ahead of the parrots' demolition,
transporting cardboard boxes twice a month, chopping produce and preparing 80 salads daily, floor care, making parrots toys, socializing with parrots, anything
that helps keep the birds happy! Volunteers set their own schedules - do one day a week or one day a month; IT ALL HELPS, and we greatly appreciate it!
Report abused or neglected parrots to State of Maine Animal Welfare Program 1-877-269-9200.
Make a donation to help feed and care for our flock of 80 +/- parrots.
Volunteer; Call us to talk about help we can use.
It costs roughly $16,000 annually (roughly $45 per day) to house and feed the flock. Any donation, large or small helps immensely! We are both semi-retired so we have more time to spend
with the birds but less income.
100% of all money donated goes to the sanctuary's upkeep, and food and medical expenses for the birds. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit so your donations are tax deductible.
If it is an in - kind donation of a cage or equipment, we can give you a receipt for the value of the item.
MANY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED MONEY,
TIME AND EQUIPMENT OVER THE YEARS!!
We need another and a wiser and perhaps more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice,
man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion.
We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. Therein we err, and greatly err. For
the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the
senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations
caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.
