Welcome to North Yorkshire Parrot Rescue!

NYPR have been involved in bird rescue and rehabilitation work since 2006, and is now fully dedicated to the rescue, foster and adoption of surrendered or found parrots. Our priority is identifying potential adoption homes and educating caregivers in proper parrot care, to help avoid the behavioral problems that cause rehomeing in the first place.


Because all of the birds in the NYPRs adoption program have experienced the loss of one or more homes, we believe that every adoption should represent the best possible match and opportunity for a successful relationship.


Our Adoption Process and Polices are based on the best practices learned from research and designed to put birds and people together to form a relationship that can last them a lifetime. NYPR offer a free advice and rescue service for all Parrots, Parakeets, Cockatiels, and other cage and aviary birds.


We will take in and care for any pet bird regardless of size, age, or medical condition. We will treat and then rehabilitate any sick or injured birds with the help of specialist Avian vets. We are based in North Yorkshire and cover Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.


We are a self funded, non profit organisation and do not get paid or receive any funding for the work that we do. It is entirely voluntary. This doesn't mean we don't need any outside help, because sometimes we do, for the rescue to keep going and to help more birds in need of help.


You can help us by donating any unwanted cages, bird food. You can help financially, giving any amount you can to help us with our daily expenses. Please use the Donate Button on the left. Thank you.


This will help us buy the best food for our birds, and it will help us to save birds from being unnecessary euthunized, because the owners of sick and injured birds can't afford the expensive vet bills.


We do not ask for a Membership fee to adopt a bird, but we will ask for a small donation to help us with our daily expenses and running costs.


If you have a Parrot or other birds and need our help or feel you can no longer care for your bird, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Please note - We are now closed, as regards to anymore rescues and adoptions, so will not be taking in anymore birds until 07/01/2018. We are open for help and advice only.

Our rescue service was created to assist in the care of all types of parrots, parakeets, and other cage birds. Sometimes with the right advice or behavioural training the rehoming of the bird has not been necessary.


The Main Mission of NYPR is to ensure that all parrot owners are given the best information and support needed to keep their loved birds at home with them; many behavioral problems can be resolved with some time and help. We offer our free support, with some of the best pet bird advice and education available.


Many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, at no fault of their own, because education isn’t provided at the outset. Captive birds often suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, and many other problems that can result from poor husbandry.


Both stress and nutritional deficiencies can lead to feather-plucking and other forms of self mutilation, while boredom and social stress, like loneliness and fear can cause biting and screaming. This is why we have free information available (see the pages on the left) So owners can learn to meet the needs of their pet and then these behavior problems are resolved.


However, it is a sad fact of life that circumstances can change and a home once suitable for a parrot can become unsuitable, and you need to find a new home for your pet. Parrots can be loud, demanding, expensive, and capable of delivering a nasty bite; we sympathise.


We will take our time and great care to find a good permanent  home for your Parrot. You can keep in touch with the foster carer and the new owner if you want to see how the bird is getting on.


Non-profit bird sanctuaries can provide homes for some birds for whom their owners can no longer provide care. However, some of these sanctuary's are now full, so many more of these birds need to be adopted in peoples homes by committed owners who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for the birds. A person who is ready for the responsibility of owning a Parrot should seriously consider adopting one rather than buying a new one.


Many wild bird species have become endangered as a result of the pet trade, not only because it takes birds out of their breeding population, but also because the majority of these birds die in transit. To avoid contributing to this needless loss of life, please examine any bird seller carefully; ask to see the birds parents if its a breeder, and ask for a hatch date.
