Safehaven Parrot Refuge was set up over 25 years ago by Christine and Paul Forman and with the assistance of our Patron Neil Forbes became a registered Charity in 1998.
The name "Refuge" implies we house all in coming birds here at headquarters and when we started out indeed we did, but as the decades have passed few parrots have been added here; for the welfare of those resident here, not just on a quartine level but stability within the flock. Incoming parrots are now mostly safehoused and assessed by our members to match parrot and family as appropriate. (New members with parrot knowledge prepared to safehouse always needed).
Most animal rescues do not have the expertise that is needed for the care of parrots and this is where Safehaven comes in.
We have our permanent resident birds, which will be cared for by us for the rest of their lives
Our primary role is the welfare of Parrots, rescue and rehabilitation then equally the eduction to Parrot keepers to ensure a lifelong harmony with these complex birds not many generations removed from the wild.
We endeavour to keep abreast of the latest legislation in our policies for rehoming and as such everything has recently had an overhaul, including this website.
There are rescued Parrots that come to us who can go to members by way of our rehoming scheme. We also take in birds from people who cannot continue to care for them and place them in suitable, caring homes.
These guardians are chosen, carefully, from our membership. for more information, please go to our About Us Page.
