Welcome to North Yorkshire Parrot Rescue!

NYPR is part of Rainbow Bird and Animal Rescue a Registered Charity (1165772) dedicated to the rescue, foster, protection and welfare needs of surrendered or found parrots.

Our work involves identifying potential short and long-term foster homes for companion birds, and educating present caregivers in proper parrot care, so they don't need to keep rehoming their birds, but can keep them at home with them, where some of them belong.

All rescued birds are treated as individuals. While in short term foster care, their needs will be assessed, some may need less attention, and will only bond with one person, sometimes preferring a man rather than a woman, so will be matched with this in mind. And birds that belong with other birds, will be placed in a Sanctuary.

Whereas a bird that demands much more attention, interaction and stimulation, would always be placed in a family home environment.

NYPR also believes, that non-tame Parrots, and other cage birds, that will not bond with their owners, (Aviary Birds), but rather prefer to be with other birds, do not belong in people's homes, to live the rest of their lives alone in a cage.

For these birds and (some pet birds included), that will interact with other birds, given the opportunity, a life in a Sanctuary could be a better option. For more information - Please read about the Rainbow Bird Rescue Sanctuary, below.

For further information, please read the page: Stop Caging Birds.

Our Work

We carry out a wide range of animal rescues, welfare and care work for all kinds of birds and animals whether they’re wildlife, pets or agricultural animals.

Many of our rescues involve unwanted pets; when owners can no longer provide the proper care, for whatever the reason, we can take them in and provide them with expert care and attention, and for some a forever home on our 30 acre farm sanctuary in Wales.

Important Bird Rescue Information: Exotic tropical birds such as Parrots, Parakeets and Cockatiels, as well as Budgies, Lovebirds, Finches, and other varieties, are often kept in captivity as beautiful and interesting pets.

Unfortunately, many owners may not know how to care for their birds properly, while others experience life changes that may leave their pets without a suitable home.

Captive birds can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, boredom and loneliness and many other problems when they do not receive proper care.

Many wild exotic birds are endangered as a result of the international pet trade. Non-profit bird sanctuaries can provide homes for some birds (Having limited space available) for whom their owners can no longer provide care.

However, many more of these birds need to be fostered by committed and dedicated carers, who have taken the time to thoroughly understand what it takes to care for these birds properly. A person who is ready for the responsibility of committing to help a homeless bird should seriously consider fostering one rather than buying a new one.

We are a Non Profit Organisation, Run by Dedicated Volunteers. 100% Voluntary.
