Birdline Parrot-Rescue was founded in 1992, initially to rescue and care for birds in the Warwickshire area.
Expansion soon became an urgent necessity, resulting in recruiting various people who specialised in all species of birds from Finches to Macaws.
A network of helpers and area co-ordinators, all of who work from their own homes, without payment, in order to provide a nationwide structure was quickly organised; thus permitting the organisation to offer a loving secure home to a wide variety of birds.
Birds are therefore never without a safe home, and are rescued by donation, collected by an area representative, they then decides where best the bird should be placed until a suitable home can be found.
In the past years, Birdline has helped over 1500 birds to find new homes, Over the last year Birdline has had over 1,000,000 visits to their main web site, taken over 30,000 telephone calls for help and advice, and aided countless birds and pets that owners cannot look after, either on a short or long term basis.
They have assisted with behavioural problems, damaged and crippled birds, mutilated and neglected birds and have formed a strong liaison with many bird charities, including, police forces, zoos and other rescue organisations, not only in the UK but in many other countries around the world.
