To all our friends, associates, and supporters

Thank you for your generosity and continued support through these difficult times. It has come to our attention that people on social media have been using images, names and logos from Parrot Partners Canada in an attempt to contact our donors for fraudulent purposes. 

This behaviour has included contacting people via social media direct messaging in Facebook, Instagram, and more. People are being contacted, usually by social media, and asking for gift cards and wire transfers such as Western Union, Cashapp, and Venmo.  This bulletin is provided to make our donors aware of this and to help prevent anyone from becoming a victim of fraud.

It is important to know that very few legal enterprises, other than the issuer of such a card, will ever ask you for gift cards in payment or donation. Scammers ask for them because they are easy to convert to cash, without all the difficulties of getting victims to transfer actual cash. A similar scam involves the criminal calling to claim to be Canada Revenue or a distant relative and demanding gift cards to cover taxes / bail money.

Parrot Partners Canada will never:

  • Ask you for a donation in a social media direct message.
  • Ask you to send us a gift card (such as Amazon, iTunes, or Google).
  • Ask for or accept wire transfers without prior arrangement initiated by the donor.

If you believe you have been a victim of this scam, we urge you to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Toll-free: 1-888-495-8501

In order to ensure your saftety and security, Parrot Partners accepts donations through Canada Helps on the form on this web page.

Donations

Displaced and neglected parrots need your help more than ever!



The primary focus of the funds raised through donations go towards the veterinary expenses required to bring in relinquished and rescued parrots.

The care and rehabilitation of a single parrot is approximately 2.5 times more costly than that of a single cat or dog. This is due to the fact parrots can carry transmittable diseases which cannot be vaccinated against, and can only be detected through diagnostic tests.

In comparison to dog and cat adoption centers, parrot adoption facilities require stringent air filtration and cleaning standards due to their delicate respiratory systems. Parrot adoption centers also require more square footage per animal. The Parrots also need to be interacted with and handled on a regular basis if they are to retain their hand tameness.


Why we do what we do!



Did you know?


Humane Societies will only accept the smallest of the companion parrots, leaving the care and rescue of medium to large sized parrots to specialized centers like Parrot Partners.

What should be understood is that specialized centers like us do not receive financial support form the Humane Society.

The parrots in our care rely totally on the kindness and generosity of donors and volunteers such as you!


Other ways to Donate


Purchase and Donate Supplies from our 'Wish List' of items

To provide our Parrots with food, medical care, as well as to properly train them for socialization, we almost exclusively rely on our donations from the general public.
