Located in West Michigan, we are a non-profit, home-based parrot rescue. Our emphasis is on flock dynamics, raw, whole-food nutrition and a relaxed atmosphere. Each bird that comes into our home receives the absolute best avian vet care, diet, enrichment and "instructions" from the other birds in our flock. Birds landing here will find a soft, safe and intimate environment, be able to relax and show us their personality.
Ken and Nancee have a combined 50 years of experience dealing with parrots of all species. Our very first parrot together, a Yellow-Naped Amazon named Charlie, is still with us. Nancee began caring for parrots in 1983 with an Amazon and a pair of Brotogeris parakeets. We have seen the avian community ebb and flow throughout the years, and the end result has brought us here, providing a place for parrots in need. There is a special place in our hearts for the special-needs birds; Ken is extremely talented with providing custom enclosures and playgrounds to suit every handicap.
Every bird that comes in to our rescue will be placed in a roomy cage, and after a vet check, will be placed in with the rest of the flock. They are not kept in cages in a separate room; they will have a hanging playground, tons of appropriate cage toys, lots of windows and an outside aviary to enjoy. Our experience has taught us that the other flock members are better teachers than we are!
But don't just take our word for it; here is what one of our adopters said:
"We cannot say enough about Nancee & Ken. You can tell that everything they do comes from a place of love for their rescued birds. They put so much effort into each parrot that you can’t help but feel emotionally charged. They are thoughtful, loving, and truly caring people who only want the very best for each parrot they take in. Their flock is clearly loved, and they all have a place to just be parrots. I wish I could better articulate the vibe that you get when you step foot inside. It’s inspiring and clear that Ken takes a great deal of time & pride in the setup he’s built for the fids. You will not want to leave this oasis, being that each and every parrot has such a great story to tell. We were fortunate enough to adopt Zeus, an umbrella cockatoo, who has the best demeanor and is truly amazing! He’s a sweet boy and our entire family is already in love!! Thank you Nancee & Ken for the work your doing for these precious babies!! You guys are truly angels!! We would highly recommend Soft landing Parrot rescue!!"
