Do You Love Dust & Dander?

No? Then don’t buy a parrot! Parrots create a lot of dander. Much more than any other animal considered to be a pet. Garuda Aviary’s flock creates more dander in a week then the average household creates in a year. In one year, our flock produces more than 6 pounds [...]

The Throw Away Bird

Don’t Throw Me Away by Christopher (Rigdzen) Zeoli

A Rescue Aviary’s Daily Mail

The letter below, posted with the full permission of the writer, is a perfect example of why parrots are not suitable as pets. It illustrates why they simply do not fit within people’s limitations to care for them even in the best circumstances. This letter is also just one of many such letters and phone [...]

Garuda Aviary Needs Volunteers!

Amigo2Do you want to learn about parrots? What they should eat? What kind of stimulation they need? Their language? Their history? How they think? How they feel?

Are you good with animals? Do you feel like you know how to talk to them? How to respond to them and what their responses mean?

If you said yes to any of these questions, then maybe you should consider volunteering at Garuda Aviary.

We have a new page in our Education section:
What We Feed Our Flock and Why

The Garuda Aviary is a non-profit sanctuary whose mission is to provide lifelong care for abused, neglected and abandoned companion parrots as well as provide education to the public about the plight of parrots worldwide.
Currently Garuda Aviary provides care for over 50 Parrots, many of whom have been reintroduced to life as “part of the flock” for the first time in their lives. In addition to our climate-controlled indoor facility, our birds can experience the feel of the sun on their wings in our spacious outdoor flight cage.

 We are also committed to educating the public about the huge commitment, responsibility and difficulty of keeping parrots as pets and address the tragic effects of the cruel and inhumane illicit bird trade. The goal is to prevent future abuse, neglect and abandonment.

We invite you to please take a moment right NOW and view this short 10 minute video, which will give you a complete overview of the Garuda Aviary and our mission of compassion.

Please be patient, it will stay black for a few seconds before playing!

Become a supporter of the Garuda Aviary TODAY and be a part of helping to make a HUGE difference in the lives of abused, neglected and abandoned Parrots!

We rely solely on contributions from our kind supporters.
YOU can make a difference!
