The abandoned and abused parrot problem is quickly reaching epidemic proportions in America. Ziggy's Haven needs lots of help to properly maintain the birds in our care. We cannot in good conscience take in more birds than we can properly care for, so the more Volunteers who participate, the more birds we can help!

Our sanctuary is growing quickly, and we have lots of goals for the future of our group. We are looking for volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and experience to assist us with reaching our goals.
