Here at Northern Parrots we like to provide you with more information about charities and rescues. The latest is Joan’s North Wales Parrot Rescue.
The centre has even been visited by ITV Wales and Channel 5. Channel 5’s programme My Houseful of Amazons showcased some of the work they do.
They were approved for charity registration in February 2020. Charity Number: 1187805
The charity was founded in May 2014 as North Wales Parrot Rescue and was then renamed in 2015 as Joan’s North Wales Parrot Rescue. Joan Rakhra, the owner of Joan’s North Wales Parrot Rescue, has kept Parrots for over 30 years.
They rely entirely on donations for funding. The rescue visits schools, markets and local community events to raise awareness and run displays and store visits. Plus, they support owners who have birds with behavioural problems and take in birds when their owner can no longer care for them.
Joan presents on the local radio station.
Every Parrot that is rehomed is tried to match to the right owner, to give them a second chance in life. Fosterers can also take in birds for rehoming too. Every fosterer has an annual home visit to ensure the welfare of the bird.
You can support the charity by becoming a sponsor or donating.
