Southern Nevada Parrot Education, Rescue & Rehoming Society
The Southern Nevada Parrot Rescue & Rehoming Society works with parrots only. Though we have many fine parrots available for adoption, we are not accepting any new intakes at this time.
If you have adopted from us, are currently fostering, or would like to adopt, please call 702-472-3388. Please do not leave any rehoming-related messages on our main number, as such calls will not be returned. Potential adopters are specifically encouraged to join the organization and to submit an adoption form, so that we may conduct a home visit and initiate the adoption process. Thank you!
POTENTIAL FEED PROBLEM
A Midwest bird rescue reports having lost 11 parrots in a 24-hour period after feeding, with three more birds still in critical condition. According to necropsies, the trouble was gastrointestinal. Food samples are being tested by a midwest university lab. You may want to refrain from feeding the following till more details are known from the post by the rescue:
Information about the food batches:
Zupreem, Large for macaws/cockatoos etc: 10287 865309107 Use By: 3/31/19
Zupreem, Large for macaws/cockatoos etc: 09137 862908047 Use by: 2/28/19
Higgin's Vita Seed Parrot Use By: 4/5/19

Thus far, based on necropsies, the Zupreem appears to be the common denominator.
The Southern Nevada Parrot Education Rescue & Rehoming Society (SNPERRS) is a NonProfit organization that is tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service Code. It is managed and operated totally by Volunteers. Our members realize that there are many reasons why someone may need to give up a pet bird for rehoming; circumstances change for everyone and simply selling a beloved pet is not an option for many owners. We are a caring alternative to selling a loved pet to a stranger.
Donate Your Parrot
Giving up a bird is never easy, and the decision must be given a lot of thought. But when a new home is the best option for your bird, the next step is to fill out our donation form. This form is designed to give the program director valuable information toward the best possible placement for your bird. We understand that you are concerned about your bird's future welfare. We share your concern and the more information we get about your bird's habits, likes and dislikes, the easier it will be for the bird to make adjustments in his/her new environment.
Become a Foster home
SNPERRS relies completely on Volunteers to care for parrots waiting to be adopted. Find out how you can become a SNPERRS Foster home or volunteer for other tasks even if you aren't able to take birds in.
Found a Wild Bird?
The SNPERRS rehoming program includes exotic pet birds (parrots) only. We do not conduct rescue/rehoming for protected native species or introduced birds, including pigeons, starlings, or house sparrows. If you have a concern relative to a wild or introduced species, please contact "The Wild Wing Project", the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service or the Nevada Department of Wildlife. Your cooperation will help ensure that SNPERRS can continue to focus on what it does best. Thank You!
A major part of SNPERRS success comes from the support of people like you! Please consider making a donation today to help support the medical needs and day to day expenses involved in the care and feeding of these beautiful intelligent parrots. Everything needed to maintain the success of the rescue is done by volunteers. From fostering donated birds, to transporting cages or just talking to people in the community about what we do and the great need for caring people and loving homes. Please consider donating your time to help, or make a monetary donation if you are able. You will have our sincerest thanks for your generosity and concern.
