Parrots For Adoption


As mention in the “About” section, the mission of M.A.R.S, our Florida based parrot rescue organization is a simple one. We are committed to finding loving homes for birds who are abandoned, neglected, have health issues, or are not wanted for a variety of other reasons. It is our highest priority to match the right individual or family to a exotic bird that will bring years of  joy to both. We are a no-fault rescue, more on that to follow.

The Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary specializes in parrots. Parrots are the third most popular pets in the world. M.A.R.S. no-fault policy means that if your first choice of avian does not work out, you keep trying till you find the perfect avian companion for your situation.

Please scroll down to view some of our adoptable birds on the Adopt-a-Pet link below. Also view our listings on, and (Florida Parrot Rescue M.A.R.S.), on Facebook.  Availability changes often, and it is difficult to keep updated pictures of adoptable birds current, so check with us via our site contact form, direct e-mail,(, or one of the sites mentioned above.  Adoption papers available on FORMS page.


Macaws are extremely inquisitive, curious, affectionate, and playful animals. Often called winged rainbows, they are the most colorful members of the bird family – with powerful large beaks and long tails. Considered the largest birds among the parrots, these birds flaunt a unique blend of beauty, intelligence, and numerous engaging traits that make them a highly sought after pet.

(Images coming soon!)

1. Isabella or Izzy as we call her, Catalina Macaw, female, $375.00



4. Crackers and Big Blue, both Blue and Gold Macaws.  MUST stay together. $500.00 for the pair.

Please email for current Macaws available


  1. Cockatoos are very lively and affectionate birds. They are quite cuddly and bond very closely with their owners. They are very social and playfull, and love the interactions humans can provide. Never forget most cockatoos have a two yearold mentality so teach them to play, and to be happy with the time you have to give them.  Over all they are a total delight. Remember we are a no fault rescue, so if one cockatoo does not fit your situation, you can try others till we get the perfect match.

Here are the Cockatoos that we currently have for adoption: Please email for current Cockatoos available.

    Thank you for reading the story of Babs. Such a love and a character she was and is. She was adopted a long time ago and still in her (50’s I believe) is thriving. We have had many amazing greys through MARS in the past and I am sure more will cross our paths in the future .. Did you read about the 9/11 Greys. That was an amazing story as well…

    Hi LuAnn,
    I’ve written you before about our beloved Petey’s death. He was an African Gray we adopted from M.A.R.S. in 2012. He was 15 yrs old at the time. He had a heart attack at our avian vets during a beak and nail trim when he was 21. It’s been a year since he died and the hole in my heart is still there. I think I’m ready for another now. Do you have any African Grays for adoption at this time,?

  • LuAnn Apple October 22, 2019 at 2:15 am

    Please forgive delayed reply to this comment, I know we have been in touch so I will definitely keep you posted if and when one comes in.

  • Derrick Gordon April 22, 2020 at 11:40 am

  • LuAnn Apple April 25, 2020 at 3:13 am

    Izzy has been with MARS now for over 10 yrs and has become a rather permanent resident at this time. She has never feathered fully and never will.

  • Russ Lefler April 28, 2020 at 7:15 am

    I am interested in adopting a greenwing, scarlet or perhaps a hybrid Macaw, I foster cared for a pair of blue and golds several years ago, and would like to get one of my own. Do you have any for adoption currently.

  • LuAnn Apple May 26, 2020 at 5:55 pm

  • Misty & Jess Cooley November 15, 2020 at 9:09 am

    Hello- I am retired now and prior to that I have a Mexican Red Head, Blue Gold, a 7 day Goffin , 2 1 make 1 female yellow neck, we discovered female are attracted to woman and make to men– A Scarlet Macaw – they were each acquired in different means but the were amazing. My female Yellow Neck had a 500 word vocabulary of mostly foul language. I have longed for a hyacinth macaw, but I realize the difficulty in locating them even from breeders mostly in Long Island.

    I have relocated to FLorida and my ex-husband keep the birds as they were the one who hooked me to the amazing creatures. I have brought in from Mexico my Mexican red head – he was quarantined in Long Island and lived a long happy life with our family and they went to work with us everyday. We had 12 in our family at the most.

    I would love to be a foster or parent to a macaw and my husband is new to the way of parrots but took mine with his Bib everywhere – and installed remote heaters in the all our cars for the times in which we had to stop. WE had 2 Doberman as well and they all loved in harmony.

  • LuAnn Apple December 31, 2020 at 3:30 am

    Misty so sorry I did not see this before now, however as we have no macaws available at this time I would like to suggest Angel wings in Malabar Fla if you have not found a macaw yet Cindy Nichols is the director there. Happy New year hope you find or have already founded your forever Macaw

  • LeAnn Cintron January 14, 2021 at 11:40 am
