14 Number Of Parrot Rescue Centers In Alberta

If you have come across a lost pet, or if you have observed someone being abusive towards their parrots, you may be in a situation where you don’t know exactly what to do

In all such cases, I suggest you contact your local bird rescue centers or shelters for guidance. 

These rescue centers do provide protection to homeless, orphaned, or abused animals.

They also sell pets which you can adopt at a reasonable price from these rescue centers

Normally, animal rescue centers limit their services for certain kinds of animals living within a single region, typically for abused cats and dogs.

Otherwise, exclusive shelters are built only for raptors.

I have been writing a series on rescue homes for parrots.

This way, I can easily narrow down bird shelters that are working within certain regions and support exotic pet birds. 

This article will explore parrot rescue options based in the Canadian Province – Alberta.

Since legal terms regarding bird shelters vary among regions.

I have specified these terms for all my articles. 

So, to avoid any kind of ambiguities, I am listing all these shelter home definitions before I list parrot rescue options based in Alberta.

Service/Term Type Details
Adoption Home Adoption Take a rescued animal as a pet to your home. You will be responsible for its future care.
Sponsor/Virtual Adoption Pick a rescued animal but don’t take it home. Instead, financially support that animal.

Animal shelters and rescue homes provide basic life facilities to abused, injured, orphaned, and homeless animals.

So, if you have ever witnessed a bird getting abused, you can simply call a rescue home.

You can also surrender your own bird to such a facility (although I don’t think you’d ever do that!) 

That said, you can also get a pet from these shelters at a reasonable price.

I hope this article helped you find rescue options for any parrot or birds you are currently concerned about.
