North Wales Parrot Rescue is a non-profitable rescue which was founded by Joan and Mani Rakhra in May 2014. Due to the success and to keep the familiarity it was renamed on 1st September 2015 to Joan's North Wales Parrot Rescue. We are a self-funded rescue and do our own fundraising in and around the North Wales area. We rely on, and are very grateful to receive donations and offer the opportunity to sponsor our permanent resident birds. We help support people with bird’s behavioral problems, take in birds when their owners can no longer keep them anymore and match them to the right person, home, to someone that can commit to them and give them a second chance in life. Our ethos is to educate about the care and welfare of these fabulous creatures and we provide this information and support through our store visits, displays, School visits and social media, as well as our guest talks in and around the local community.
As seen on TV
We have taken part for a program for Channel 5 highlighting the Rescue and the work we do. You can watch it on catch up TV on MY5 just search: My Houseful of Animals & click on episode 2.
A BIG thank you
We would like to say a big thank you to all those that helped the rescue with materials and food supplies.
Firstly to M Hughes & Sons of Colwyn Bay for all the fresh fruit & Veg donated to the rescue.
Jays Fresh milk for all the support with the fresh fruit & veg donated to the rescue.
Snowdonia Timber Products for all the timber supplies which have gone into all the toy making for all the birds at the rescue helping to keep the beaks busy and minds stimulated.
And all the volunteers here and at the charity shop in Colwyn Bay without all of your support from local people and businesses the rescue would not be possible to maintain the progress through the last couple of years.
