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

2. Bella, Green wing Macaw, female, $375.00

3. Ricco, Green wing Macaw, male, $475.00

4. Crackers and Big Blue, both Blue and Gold Macaws.  Would like for them to stay together. $676.00 for the pair.



  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:

    So glad you found MARS. Unfortunately unless you are coming here on vacation we could not help you we do not ship birds. But you sure could put one of the smaller ones available for adoption on a plane and take home with you after you are approved of course. Thanks for inquiring

    I was wondering if you have pics of the birds available on petfinder or somewhere else. Pictures and descriptions of a bird’s personality would certainly get them adopted faster. You say above that you have many other birds available, but absolutely no info about them. Many potential adopters have to travel a ways and have to do some research before we make the trek. Maybe you have a volunteer who could be in charge of your webpage and make it the best one around.

    Have tried and tried to make that happen but no one follows through with doing it . I certainly agree that it would make the process easier. All I can do is keep asking and maybe some day a volunteer will step up to the plate for MARS. Thank you for commenting as this is a crucial issue.

    I’m very interested in adopting a parrot. After moving to Florida from Maryland, I miss having a bird tremendously. Please reply.

    Leah Bella was a wild caught breeder bird from a facility in south Miami. She tries to be friendly and asks now for head scratches, but that is about it. Beautiful girl quiet in very good feather and seems happy enough. But she is terrified of the hose not water so much but a hose. She is probably in her thirties. If interested email and I will forward to the adoption coordinator. Did you find out the cause of death in your Hy just curious?
