Gimme Shelter!Gimme Shelter!

Each year, millions of exotic birds are sold into the pet trade in the United States and abroad. Their longevity and natural, wild behaviors virtually ensure that an individual bird will need to be placed in a shelter or sanctuary at some point in his/her lifetime. MAARS is here to provide shelter, care, food, veterinary and behavioral treatment, and placement for displaced birds. We need your help to cover the costs of these services.

Join the MAARS Flock Today…and Be the Wind Beneath Their Wings!

The MAARS Annual Membership Program gives you and our other loyal MAARS Supporting Flock Members the opportunity to help MAARS on an ongoing, sustaining basis. Your annual financial contribution will allow us to continue to provide and expand our valuable rescue, intake, care, veterinary and behavioral evaluation and treatment, adoption, sanctuary, outreach, and educational services for the displaced captive birds who we meet and the people whose lives they touch.

With so little, you can do so much to change the lives of the birds MAARS serves! On average, it takes $1.00 per day to care for each MAARS bird. Every small donation makes a big difference, and big donations help even more. Your participation in the MAARS Annual Membership Program will help save and improve the lives of hundreds of parrots and other displaced captive birds.

Please join MAARS today! Give them shelter! Ease their pain! Stop the cycle! And know that you made one corner of the world a better place for another living creature!
