The mission of Papayago Rescue House is to support the well-being and maintenance of parrots in our community through rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, and rehoming. We provide mentoring, training, and support to parrot owners, promoting successful family bonding and decreasing surrenders. We provide a rescue environment specifically adapted for parrots, decreasing the need for birds to be placed at facilities not equipped to handle bird requirements and behavior. Our work with birds and bird owners helps us to decrease the problems of parrot homelessness, abuse, or neglect as well through minimizing the release of unwanted parrots into the local environment, with their unknown impact on native birds and habitats, reducing the economic impact of these birds on local government entities. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and a licensed Georgia Department of Agriculture-inspected rescue.
