Marden’s Ark Avian Refuge is a 501(c)(3) companion parrot rescue and sanctuary. Incorporated on April 4, 2014 in the state of North Carolina, we have grown from a handful of birds to over 100, many needing specialized accommodations. The problem is bigger than any rescue can solve by taking in unwanted birds. We need to change how people think about living with companion parrots. We need to not only raise the bar on standards of care for our avian companions – we need to #GiveTheBarWings. Please join us in that effort by sharing information from this blog.
