Mission and Vision







Professional Parrot Care

Under My Wing provides excellent professional care.

We specialize in working with birds that that are aggressive towards humans or other birds, very noisy, self-mutilators, feather pucker’s, sufferers of separation anxiety, are elder or in need of palliative care, have disabilities and parrots that have very neurotic behaviors.

Our birds live in a safe, comfortable, loving, and mentally enriching environment, with many developing trusting and often playful relationships with staff members and volunteers. Our professional staff serves your parrot with optimum service from short-term to life-time care.

We provide:

  • Healthy diets and proper avian veterinary care
  • Proper sized housing in large cages and aviaries
  • Clean environment
  • Supervised time out of the cage playtime minimal 6 hours per day
  • Indoor and outdoor playtime and activities
  • Hospice care for the terminally ill and comfort (palliative) care for the physically challenged

Short-term Care

  • For owner relinquished, adoptable birds and birds that are transferred to our care by other organizations or law officials.
  • Boarding while owner travel or for other reasons cannot care for the bird for an extended period
  • Rehabilitation of a bird while it is recovering from major surgery or requires behavior modification
  • Accommodate lost and found birds

Long-term Lifetime Care

  • For unadoptable birds that are relinquished by owners or family members with financial provision but cannot afford the high cost of most parrot sanctuaries
  • For unadoptable birds that are transferred to our care by other organizations or law officials
  • Permanent long-term care, should an owner become incapacitated and are no longer able to provide for its care

Special Arrangements or Emergency

  • Special arrangements or emergency situations can be discussed directly with Paula. Rapid admission of a bird can be granted provided that we have the room as well as the means to properly care for your bird and meet its specific needs.


  • We provide individual classes with hands-on learning experiences for new bird owners and individuals who plan to adopt a bird.
  • We use lectures, radio talk shows, and other means to educate the general public about the need for responsible bird ownership, health, emergencies and avian care
