COME ON IN!
We are open every day 10am to 4pm (except Christmas Day and New Years Day)

Donations gratefully accepted.
Now’s the time to donate special or heirloom items to our upcoming Silent Auction!
Please bring donations to the Thrift Shop.
Some items we already have:
Help us make this the BEST AUCTION to date. Winter is here and our wonderful birds need to be kept warm in their 23,000 sqft facility.
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.
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:
Thank you very much!
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!
Here are some of the informational and educational posters around the Refuge.
Horst was busy outside putting up some more of the educational banners along the walkway up to the entrance. There will be about a dozen or so when he’s finished.
Wendy told me that there will be two new outdoor flights being built, as soon as the weather is amenable. The posts and fencing was already there, now all that’s needed is a few days of sun to get them up!

“Every painting will be different. They are so imaginative,” Wendy Huntbatch said enthusiastically after the first art trial. “I think the cockatoos are going to be the best artists.”
The paintings, on stretched canvas, will be sold at the Parrot Refuge or online and each one will be personally signed, with a footprint, by the bird artist.
Each unique parrot painting is $75, plus shipping. Shipping will be added to your order when the painting is shipped. Our cart is secure, so your information is safe.
