Flight is a parrot's primary means of movement in the wild.

Our Mission: To set the standard of excellence in captive bird care, and to preserve green space for future generations of wild birds. 

The Center For Avian Welfare was founded in 2016 by veterinarian Dr. Kim Danoff.  It was her lifelong dream to have a nonprofit that focused on animals overlooked by society.  In 2000 she decided birds would become the focus of her welfare efforts after realizing they are one of the most mistreated and misunderstood wild animals kept in captivity.  

The Center for Avian Welfare is a vegan nonprofit.  We made this decision based on the fact that animal agriculture is the number one cause of rainforest destruction which is greatly reducing the numbers of parrots in the wild.
