About Safehaven Parrot Refuge

Safehaven help people who have had to part with their parrot(s) for all sorts of reasons, often a much loved Parrot and therefore very reluctantly, maybe because of illness, problems within the family, work etc.


This can be a traumatic experience for both the parrot and the owner.

The owner may have died and there is nobody who wants to take on the care of the parrot.

Birds can also come to us because they are just not wanted anymore and some of these birds may have had a miserable existence for many, many years. Often, they have been imprisoned in cages (sometimes filthy and far too small) and have had to live on an extremely poor and inadequate diet also having been starved of the care, love and attention a parrot needs for a healthy and happy life.


We promise people who donate their bird/s to Safehaven,

  • that we will never sell their bird/s.

  • Put the bird/s into a forced breeding situation

  • Loan their bird/s to a breeder; Sell any young that their bird/s may produce from a voluntary mating situation

  • Exploit any bird in our care

  • Always ensure that their bird/s have the best possible home for the rest of its life.


If a donor wishes to keep in touch, to see how their parrot is doing, this is always welcome. if there are any questions about the parrot, who better to ask, than the previous owner!

If you would like more information or you are thinking of rehoming your parrot with us then please click the button below to be taken to our rehoming page where you will find more information on our procedures.


We have turned around the lives of many parrots over the years and want to continue to do so, but in doing so we always need help.


We rely totally on the kindness of people in the form of donations, sponsorship and especially becoming members of Safehaven Parrot Refuge.

Without this help we could not exist.

We run almost entirely with volunteers.


We encourage members to become more involved, for example, becoming an Area Co-ordinator (area co-ordinators do have to have a good basic knowledge of parrot keeping) for them to spread the word about Safehaven Parrot Refuge. The more people know about us the better. We need more Area Co-ordinators from all over the country, from scotland to cornwall.

If you feel that you could help us, call for a chat.


Safehaven is here to offer anybody advice in connection with their parrot/s. Within Safehaven there are a lot of people who have many, many years of experience with the different types of species of parrot, who are only too willing to share their knowledge.


We think Safehaven parrot Refuge is a very worthwhile charity and one that is much needed and we hope you will too. Please do think about joining and supporting us, so that for many years to come we will be able to help parrots in need
