Home to OVER 500 abandoned/rescued exotic birds (Macaw, Cockatoo, Parrots). Many live to be 50-60-70 years old (and more), which has created a population problem in addition to situations when their owners can no longer care for them. They are cared for by a COMPLETELY VOLUNTEER group of dedicated individuals and live in "flight pens" with other birds from their species, so that they are able to socialize and live in flocks, just as they would in their natural habitat. PLEASE VOTE FOR MACAW RESCUE as a favorite charity. Thx.
The work that is done here to rescue a variety of birds from abuse or neglected homes is amazing. Bob, Carol, and many volunteers work tirelessly to provide healthy, safe living environments for over 600 birds at the sanctuary. Each year, they hold a benefit auction to support these beautiful animals which is no small feat either. Bob feels so deeply for these birds that he will do whatever it takes to ensure a long, happy & healthy life for them.
I have sent Parrots from clients to the Macaw Rescue and Sanctuary for permanent lifetime care and have visited their facility many times over the last several years. I have always been very impressed with the level of care the birds receive and the level of detail the owner, Bob Dawson, puts into enriching the lives of the birds under his care. One of the ways he does this is by constructing buildings for housing the birds during the winter months and also by constructing outdoor flights for use by the birds during the warmer months. This charity is definitely worthy of your vote and support throughout the year!!! Bob Arnold - Colorado Parrot Rescue, Inc.
With over 500 macaws and parrots, the owner, Bob, and volunteers at the Macaw Rescue and Sanctuary are constantly busy with feeding, caring and building all the time. The work never stops and it is all worth it because if it were not for this team, these birds would not have the lifetime home they have. I urge everyone to take the time to vote for this amazing facility.
