For those interested in what is happening at the World Parrot Refuge – Until further notice the Refuge itself is Closed while the birds are being examined and catalogued by a world renowned avian vet from “The Night Owl Bird hospital which is a Vancouver based veterinary hospital, wholly dedicated to the provision of exceptional avian veterinary services. Our head veterinarian is Dr. Anne McDonald, who, like the entire staff, shares a special interest in your feathered friends.” We can’t thank Dr. McDonald enough for donating her time and resources to ensure our birds are healthy and any injuries or age related issues are being treated properly. So far the birds have passed inspection and are considered well and have no disease. Great news for anyone who surrendered a much loved pet to the refuge. Further news will be posted as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

The Refuge Thrift Store remains OPEN – Please drop in and assist us in feeding the birds and maintaining the building they occupy. All sales from the Thrift Store go directly to the birds. Thank You for continuing to support these magnificent creatures.

The World Parrot Refuge is happy to let you know that it now has beautiful cards available for sale. The cards feature artwork by 4 of the parrots living at the refuge: JR, Lago, Bailey and Hello Macaw.

Wendy writes:

The cards are primarily to raise funds for the new Palliative Care Unit.  We are getting the double wide trailer ready right now.  We have to line it with steel of course – floor too so that the parrots do not have to be caged.  We have to get the power put into the building and plumbing as well.  We do have a lot of cupboards already – so we think if we can raise $15k we will have a great area for the very special needs birds.

Each Card Pack contain 4 cards (one of each design).

The cards have been produced by Cranky Crow Studios, and are available in a pack of 4 ( 1 of each design) for $20, which includes shipping in Canada.

To order your Card Pack, please type in how many Packs you would like, and click “Order Card Packs” to add them to our shopping cart:

Some Goffin’s Cockatoos check out the festive new benches outside.

These benches are along the path leading up to the Refuge. They were recently repaired (as needed) and painted a beautiful bright red by Glenn and Angela M.  These are the volunteers that built the cockatiel flight and the small parrot flight.

Many thanks, Glenn and Angela!
