Port Orchard Parrot Rescue was founded by Phyllis Penland in 2009 to help local parrots and their people find solutions to unsustainable living situations. Over the years our clients have come to know, love, and adopt many of the birds that we have taken in. We can’t imagine enough ways to thank our clients who have opened their hearts and their homes to these parrots, as well as those who have donated their time, money, toys, cages, word of mouth, and more over the years. You are the best of the best!Phyllis has now retired however Todd Penland (her son) continues to operate the rescue in conjunction with Port Orchard Parrots Plus’s retail business, as well as grooming, boarding, and other services at 595 Bethel Avenue (next door to H&R Block) in Port Orchard.
This page will help introduce you to the work of Port Orchard Parrot Rescue and provide necessary information for those who wish to adopt or foster a homeless parrot as well as those seeking to re-home their own bird(s). Just select the tab at the top that pertains to your situation to continue.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that you will not choose the bird you adopt, the bird will choose you. As much as you might want that African Grey Parrot, if she doesn’t form a bond with you during your visits then we will gently – but firmly – ask that you spend some time with some of the other available parrots. We will not place any bird in any home unless we are as sure as we can be that the bird will be happy there.Once a bond begins to form, you will be expected to visit your potential parrot companion on a regular basis, spending as much time with him/her as you can to help them get to know you better, and vice versa. The more time you spend together the better.
Rehoming Your Bird
If you’ve made the difficult decision to re-home your bird(s) there are a few things you should consider before turning to a parrot rescue:
Please don’t advertise that you are re-homing your bird. We cannot stress this strongly enough. There are some really bad actors out there who put on a good show but are simply interested in your bird as a way to enrich themselves. You can be sure that – if they’re going to find you – advertising is how they’ll do it.
