Organization Avian Rescue Corporation
Organization Description Companion birds are one of the preferred pets in the USA. Not all pets receive good care and a loving home. Established in 2001, ARC has expanded to rescuing and providing a sanctuary for all types of tropical parrots. Thousand of birds are abandoned or lost annually; ARC provides care and rehabilitation until ARC can find them a new and caring home. Domesticated birds have little to no chance of survival in the wild. ARC has helped hundreds of birds by picking them up from animal shelters and individuals that can no longer provide a good home for their birds. At any one time, there are over 200 birds in the ARC system. For more information, please email us: avianrescuecorp@gmail.com
