​​Our Mission:  to protect and prevent the suffering of parrots in captivity by providing rescue and sanctuary to abused, neglected, unwanted and senior parrots. We provide all of our residents with a nutritious mostly organic diet, certified avian veterinary care, and natural forms of enrichment. We are available to the public to promote responsible ownership and proper parrot care through education and owner support. 

While our mission is to provide a safe haven for parrots currently living in captivity, there is a great need to conserve these beautiful birds in their natural habitats. The deforestation and poaching for the pet trade that is currently wiping out many parrot species has to stop! We need to protect these highly intelligent and very social creatures in their natural environments through conservation efforts and environmental restoration. Please support the efforts of conservation organizations as well!


We work hard here at The Chesapeake Parrot Sanctuary to ensure that all of our residents are happy and healthy, but we can't do it without your help!

Please donate today!
