At Tallgrass Parrot Sanctuary, we envision a world where parrots enjoy long and healthy lives – whether they live in natural or man-made environs.
We do not breed, sell or adopt out any bird that comes to us. We give them a home where they can live with dignity respect. We ask nothing in return except that they help us educate people about how to keep both captive and wild parrots happy and healthy.
We are guided by the teachings of Albert Schweitzer who advises: Don’t stop to ask whether the animal or plant you meet deserves your sympathy, or how much it feels, or even whether it can feel at all: respect it and consider all life sacred.
The humans of Tallgrass
Nestled on 6 rolling acres outside the rural community of Lecompton, Kansas, Tallgrass is home to more than 50 parrots of all sizes. More than 70 other lovable critters live on the property too, including humans, dogs, pigs, cats, tortoises, chickens, ducks and turkeys.
Our specially designed 1,500 square foot aviary houses our largest birds. Heated coops and sheds give our outdoor friends warmth and safe places to live. As a home-based facility, Tallgrass humans also share their living quarters with critters everyday.
