HAPPE Parrots Rescue Parrot Rescue Illinois IL

Welcome to H.A.P.P.E Parrots

HAPPE parrot rescue is an Illinois based organization assisting with the adoption and placement of exotic birds through a network of foster care homes and coordinated efforts with other licensed avian organizations throughout the USA. HAPPE Parrots also provides education, rehabilitation and behavior management consultation.


We are looking for dedicated individuals that are interested in learning about proper parrot care. This shelter/rescue is in our home and has several parrots with special needs. You must not be afraid of parrots because cleaning their cages is required. We pay particular attention to diet and proper nutrition for this large flock.  We teach proper parrot care. This care includes nutritional instruction per species, how to handle behavioral issues, such as screaming, biting, and feather picking, parrot hygiene/bathing, and the proper way to medicate parrots.

If you are interested in helping out a couple hours a week, please contact us by phone  630-759-7363 or by e-mail wingnutz2@aol.com.

Thank You!

Selling molted feathers, helps us to continue to rehabilitate, and facilitate the adoption and placement process.

An uneducated owner, seed only diet and insufficient vet care lead to this bird having fatty liver disease.

Before adopting a parrot - please make sure you are ready to put in the time, effort and care that these animals require. They are one of the most amazing pets - so please make sure you are ready to take on the responsibility of caring for one of these loving animals.
