Safehaven Parrot Refuge
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
