Lazicki’s has helped hundreds of unwanted parrots

find new, loving homes 

Lazicki’s Bird House and Rescue is the only rescue in Rhode Island to focus exclusively on re-homing abused, and unwanted exotic parrots.  This work is desperately needed.  We receive approximately 10-20 calls per week from people looking to relinquish, or needing emergency placement for their bird.  Many birds do not come from the best of situations; coming to us missing eyes, toes, feathers and worst of all with broken spirits.  Now in our 17th year, Lazicki’s has helped hundreds of birds find better lives because of the dedication and sacrifice of those who believe in us. 

We won’t be able to continue without your help.

We received devastating news earlier this month that our building has fallen into disrepair and will need to be demolished.   We only have until December 30, 2013 to find a new facility to house our flock of close to 70 parrots and continue this important work.  Rental costs for commercial properties here in Wakefield are higher than what we are currently paying. The spaces we have found so far in our price range will require extensive renovations in order to meet the needs of the birds currently entrusted to our care.

We cannot make these renovations without you. Your support will ensure that the birds you see in this video will continue to have:

  • a comfortable home and loving daily interaction
  • proper sunlight for their health
  • cleaning facilities to keep the rescue spotless
  • space to allow the birds to fly and stretch their wings

Please help us raise our goal of $10,000.00 to assist in offsetting renovation and rental costs so that we can continue this important work.  To learn more about our rescue’s history and the birds who currently call our rescue home, please visit www.lazibirds.org or find us on facebook at www.facebook.com/grammiecracker.

With your support, we will face this new challenge head-on and make a wonderful new home for the Lazicki parrots!
