Since the founding of MAARS in July 1999, almost 1500 unwanted parrots have come through our doors. More than 1400 birds have been successfully placed into permanent homes. We’ve consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping all captive parrots. We take our convictions and turn them into action. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch for more information!
MAARS’ core function is to care for our flock at our facility, The Landing. Our primary mission is to educate the public, people who already live with parrots, and the veterinary community about the issues that face captive parrots.
