About Us

We are the only licensed shelter exclusively for companion birds (mostly parrots) in Kansas. Our goal is to take in homeless, unwanted, or abused parrots; "rehabilitate" them, and find them good, permanent, loving homes. BNW also strives to educate the community on the needs of these wonderful birds. We promote good health, enriched lives, and loving homes for our feathered companions. Our members range from the novice, single or multi-pet owner, to the experienced owner of multiple species. If you have a bird question, there’s sure to be someone in the club who will be happy to help you. To check for meeting and event times and locations, please visit us on Facebook. We encourage you to explore our website to find out what we are all about.
