Foster Parrots is an organization that rescues and cares for unwanted and abused pet parrots. Founded by Marc Johnson and based out of Massachusetts, the group runs the New England Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary in Hope Valley, Rhode Island, which provides permanent sanctuary care to unadoptable exotic animals. This includes not only parrots but other birds, turtles, fruit bats, and porcupines that are not native to the area, but were brought in illegally as pets. They also protect parrots in the wild through their conservation work in Guyana, and they work with the Avian Welfare Coalition to promote the proper care of all birds.
