Our Mission

Black Hills Parrot Welfare and Education Center, Inc. is a non profit 501 (C-3) public charity dedicated to short and long term welfare of parrots and related birds. We are promoting a quality of life for captive birds through proper housing, diet and health care. Our focus is on public education, behavior research and approved adoption.

Thousands of exotic companion birds are displaced each year simply because their caretakers can no longer provide the time or attention they require-either because their lives and interest have changed. The least fortunate unwanted birds are passed from home to home before dying from neglect or abuse. The lucky ones end up in shelters or sanctuaries. Please help us help them. Please donate today. Black Hills Parrot Welfare is incorporated with the state of South Dakota as a non profit organization and we are a 501(C-3).
