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.

  • Melissa Ford December 15, 2018 at 11:50 am

    I am interested in adopting a umbrella cockatoo

  • EDWARD FERGISON December 31, 2018 at 4:44 am

    I am looking for crackers and big blue please call 574-220-6439 or text

  • LuAnn Apple January 12, 2019 at 5:48 am

    Ed we have decided that crackers and Big blue since they are much older B&G’s probably need to remain here at MARS. If an outside aviary situation opened up for them to live out their lives in as neither is hand friendly then we could consider that as an option. Sincerely LU

  • LuAnn Apple January 12, 2019 at 5:50 am

    Just saw this comment … So sorry we have a female named Heather older girl 26 ish I believe , she is a love of a love of a bird .. She needs someone to just be her best friend.. If still interested email for further info please.

  • Nancy McDonnell January 30, 2019 at 11:43 am

    Hi, I’m looking for an African grey, Amazon, Senegal or Eclectus to adopt.

  • Chloe January 31, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Hello! I’m looking at a few adoption sites for some birds when i stumbled across this one. I was wondering if you had any conures, cockatoos (galah or umbrella) or cockatiels available for adoption. I haven’t really had a bird before but my mum and dad did so they’ll help me when I need it as well as online forums. The age doesn’t really matter however I would really prefer if you had males available (mostly with the cockatiels). I am new to the adoption process, live with my parents and still attend school (17 yrs old) but I’ve been set on getting a bird for almost 3 years now and know I want one. The problem is figuring out which to get. I may not see the responses right away because of internet issues so it will be an asap thing. Thanks.

  • LuAnn Apple February 3, 2019 at 6:02 am

    Thanks Nancy all paperwork received more from MARS very soon….

  • LuAnn Apple February 3, 2019 at 6:03 am

    Melissa did you ever send an email to and if not could you do so and I will continue on with you and give you all adopt info. Thank you so much

  • LuAnn Apple February 3, 2019 at 6:05 am

    Saw original reply and Heather has now been adopted…

  • LuAnn Apple February 3, 2019 at 6:08 am

    Jerry no double yellow heads here now. It happens we have had them. Email to get pre approved for adoption.. Thank you

  • LuAnn Apple February 3, 2019 at 6:09 am

    Chloe, I usually do not get smaller birds here at MARS however it could happen.. If you want to get pre approved for adoption email thank you …

  • Dale Hyndman February 15, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    I am looking for a B/G macaw. What if any do you have available?

  • LuAnn Apple February 28, 2019 at 3:48 am

    No B&G at this time for adoption but you could check with Seminole County parrot rescue Geneva Fl or Angel wings parrot rescue in Malabar Fla. thank you for contacting MARS

  • Bryan March 31, 2019 at 4:11 pm

    Hi is there any parrots for adoption if so please get back to me as soon as possible

  • Lorie Groleau April 13, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    I’m looking for an Umbrella Cockatoo, or Hyacinth Macaw or Green wing, Scarlet. I had a Blue and Gold, he was a sweet sweet guy. I had to give him to a friend when we moved to Florida, we knew we were going to bee in a small apartment initially. The friend was a person Indie loved, so while it was heartbreaking to leave him behind he’s happy healthy and well cared for.

  • Donny April 18, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    looking for a Poicephalus to adopt. do you have any of these feathered kids available???

    thanks for what you do for all feathered friends.

  • Alisha June 17, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    Yes do you do out of state adoptions, we are visiting my brother in August and there are no adoptions near us, we absolutely love birds, we have parakeets and cockatiels now but would like a much larger one that maybe would be easier to train to talk!!!
