SPONSOR

Sponsoring a parrot on an annual basis is an excellent way to connect to the lives of our resident parrots and to support our work. Many of our birds are rescues that do not come with funding for their care. Existing funds do not begin to offset the costs of providing the necessary care that these birds will need for decades. Sponsoring one or more of our parrots not only benefits them, it benefits you too! Your sponsorship provides the resources necessary to give a parrot the best life possible. And you will have a feathered friend for life!

Budgies- Parakeets

We have lots of Budgies looking for a sponsor! Most of our little flock prefer the company of others of their own kind where they can flock, fly, forage and find friends. You can sponsor one of our Budgies/Parakeets for 10.00 a month or 120.00 per year!

Cockatiels

We have several Cockatiels that live in the small bird aviary. They enjoy hanging out with each other, and taking a bath in our custom stream in the outdoor aviary. You can sponsor one of our Cockatiels for 15.00 per month or 180.00 per year.

Small Conures

Our small conures love making friends! They prefer the company of each other rather than human companionship and that’s fine by us! Pictured here are Marley ( Green Cheek Conure) and Milly ( Crimson Bellied Conure) You can sponsor one of our small conures for 20.00 a month or 240.00 per year.

Mango ( Mae Mae) is a 32 PLUS year old wild caught male moluccan cockatoo. He has an open band and was purchased by his previous people at a bird fair when they were afraid of where he might end up.

Pretti Boy - Blue and Gold Macaw

Pretti Boy ( presumed male) came to us out of EAST TN when we got a call from the Sheriffs Dept saying that they had come across several birds living in deplorable conditions. We acted immediately and got the birds here to EAST, settled, and vetted. Some were in really bad shape. Pretti was one of the most scared Macaws I have every laid my eyes on. He screamed in terror even if you looked at him. He has come such a long way in the two years he has been here, but still a shy guy. Loves most females. We have no history, so age is unknown. He is happy in the aviary living with some of our other Macaws. You can sponsor Pretti for 65.00 a month, or 780.00 a year.

Ricki - Female Blue and Gold Macaw

Ricki is a 16 year old Blue and Gold Macaw. She has what is called scissor beak, which means her beak does not grow together properly. It needs to be trimmed every 6 weeks so that she can continue to eat properly. Ricki loves to wave and is shy, but adorable. Scissor beak is sometimes caused by improper hand feeding when the bird is very young. You can sponsor Ricki for 65.00 a month, or 780.00 a year.

Andy - Male Moluccan Cockatoo

Andy is a 40 year old Male Moluccan. Although he was probably once very loved, in the years prior to coming to EAST he has a rough go of it. He was neglected when his people passed away then sold to a breeder. When he would not breed, they were just looking to get rid of him. Luckily one of my rescue friends found out and we got him out of there. He is super shy and not really hand on, but is also super sweet. He lives in the cockatoo aviary with some of his other friends ( including my guy, Tori!)

Andy is sponsored by Sue Barber!! Thank you Sue!! xoxo

Sammie - Female Blue and Gold

Sammie is a 10 year old Blue and Gold Macaw. She is super high strung and will bite her foot and yell when she is uncomfortable or nervous. It took a while, but she has warmed up ( to me). Her eyes color did not develop like most Macaws do as they age, so most think she is still very young. You can sponsor Sammie for 65.00 a month or 780.00 per year.
