WE ARE WINGS OF LOVE PARROT RESCUE CENTER OF THE BLUEGRASS
Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass was established in July 2014, when we were a non-specific animal rescue, after getting repeated requests from bird owners who wanted to surrender their birds. Realizing how few avian rescues exist and are prepared to intake, handle, and provide veterinary care for exotic birds, Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass was formed.
Wings of Love is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue based in Lexington, Kentucky, with officers, volunteers and foster homes all over the state. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of companion parrots. We offer many services to parrots and the people who love them, including surrender/adoption, boarding, and educational events. Our foster parents are all experienced bird caregivers, and all rescued or surrendered birds remain in a knowledgeable, parrot-experienced foster home until properly evaluated, seen and medically cleared by our avian veterinarian, then adopted.
Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass depends on the support of our wonderful volunteers and donors to be able to continue our mission. We are totally nonprofit, and have no paid employees. Everyone who works at Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass does so without financial compensation; donating their time and efforts to our goals for the welfare and advancement of companion birds and avian life as a whole.
Because we are a volunteer organization, we ask you to be patient and understanding when inquiring about adopting a bird or volunteering to help. We work full time jobs in addition to supporting the rescue, and we appreciate your patience.
Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots and pet birds of all species. We strive to educate parrot and bird owners on proper handling and care of their parrots, as well as impress upon the public the issues that come with caging birds in hopes of helping to eventually end the bird trade. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for any reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn and people to help. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay in their homes, and to rescue birds in need, then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
WHAT WE DO
· Rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected birds
· Provide veterinary care and medical treatment for birds in need
· Educate parrot owners on proper care & handling of their companion parrots
· Behavior Counseling to help keep birds in their homes
· Adoptions & Adoption Counseling
· Provide parrot owners with a place to bring their birds in the event that they can no longer keep them.
HOW WE WORK
Wings of Love Parrot Rescue Center of the Bluegrass works out of a network of foster homes spread throughout the state of Kentucky. When birds are placed on our waiting list to come into rescue, our foster coordinators work with the fosters to match them up with the right foster home. When the bird is brought into rescue, that animal will see one of the avian veterinarians we work with and will be provided with any needed medical care. Once cleared for adoption, the bird will remain in its foster home until a suitable, permanent home can be found. The foster parent cares for their foster bird in a loving, family environment, just as the bird is their own, until that happens. Our adoption process is extensive and thorough, to provide the birds a knowledgeable, dedicated, happy home.
