Paula & Rick
We have owned parrots for many years and as a result we decided to start the African Grey Parrot Centre back in December 2006 in an attempt to help other parrot owners around the country if not the world. We have a distinct passion for parrots and always want to help others as much as possible to enjoy and care for their own parrots.
We own three pet African greys including one rehomed grey called Roxy who you can read about and see her progress in our parrot diaries found in the rescue section of the site.
We live in the countryside and have plenty of room to take on parrots but our main ambition is to take on parrots help them with their needs then rehome them permanently elsewhere, there's only so many parrots one can have and give undivided attention to, ultimately our motive is for as many happy birds as we can possibly facilitate.

I have always had a love of birds, since owning an African Grey it has become a passion. I have Charlie who is 16 months old, I bought him when he was 14 weeks old. It would be nice to think that all birds have the same care and attention that I give to Charlie.
I am willing to cover Devon & Cornwall and to take in a rescue preferably a Grey but if another bird is in need, then that's fine until a suitable home can be found

Well being parrot potty started for me nearly two yrs ago when I brought home my first Grey named Echo, back then I knew next to nothing but I made it my aim to find out everything I could to make sure she had the best life possible, I didnt just want a chatty cute thing to sit in a cage
It was soon after that I saw an 18 week old baby Grey just sat in a pet shop looking a little worse for wear and I knew then I just had to help her, so Peach made her number two, this also sewed the seed for me simply having to rescue Greys in need
I later personally took on and rehomed Dave and Casper making us a four Grey family so I now feel I have the experience to help others become forever homes just the way I have, so as an interim I'm offering a loving foster home for Greys that need rescuing permanently until they find thei final forever family xx

Since rehoming an Orange Winged Amazon in 2008, I have discovered a passion for parrots. I have spent the past 2 years researching and learning all I can about these amazing birds.
In 2009 I decided to purchase an African Grey, and in July last year my 14 week old Grey came home with me.
I want to help ensure that all parrots are well cared for, and have loving homes, I am now dedicating my time to help parrots in need, and can offer a loving, caring forever home for a bird that finds itself in need of a new home.
I'm am in the early process of extending and converting my property in order to create a playful and environmentally stimulating bird room. This will be a room, where the birds will have their own space to explore, play and interact with each other.

My name is Rachel and I live in south Yorkshire with my family.
We have had Gary the Grey since Christmas 2009 and she has turned us into parrot people.
After being an active member of the AGPC for over a year we made the decision to add to our flock and rehome a grey. Angus came to live with us in May 2011 and I would like to be able to assist others in achieving their dream of giving a Grey a forever home. If you live in Yorkshire ( or somewhere near ) then maybe I can help.

Hi, I'm Terry, living in Baildon, West Yorkshire
I have always been an animal lover, and for as long as I can remember, there have always been animals in my life. Many years ago, I owned a Yellow Crowned Amazon called Oscar, he sadly passed away some 13 years ago.
I found The African Grey Parrot Centre, and did lots more research, and decided it was time to become the owner of another parrot. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a baby African Grey from the founder of AGPC, and have a very special and loving bond with him. His name is "Dave". Through the forum, I learned that there are so many birds needing forever homes, and I decided to re-home another Grey, named Swazi - and I dare say, there will be more at some point in the future.
I am passionate about the welfare of these birds, and will continue to do all I can to help ensure they have happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
I'm happy to offer advice to other parrot owners, collect birds that need to be re-homed and hand deliver them to their new matched owners on behalf of AGPC
Please do not hesitate to get in touch

My name is Nikki and I'm 28 years old. I live in the Angus area of Scotland with my partner Hughie, our staffy Roxy, and our 2 African greys, Billy and Echo, who we took on from previous homes.
After taking on our 2 greys and seeing the difference a new home can make, I would like to help other parrots find loving forever homes.
I am here to help with the rehoming of parrots in Scotland.
I am able to help with collection and transport of birds and also have a spare cage if required for any foster situations. Cage size etc is not an issue as we have a large van for transport.
