Ronie’s for the Love of Birds was opened in 1997 by Ronaleigh Wheelwright. Her vision was to bring the beauty of birds to the community while taking in birds in need. After her health declined in early 2017, some of her customers decided to quit their jobs and jump in to continue the mission. Ronie’s for the Love of Birds offers boarding, grooming, workshops, classes, community events, adoptions and supplies. We are 100% about the birds. Birds should never be a spontaneous “purchase”. Education is critical for anyone considering adding a bird into their home. We love going out into the community and meeting people. We love educating people and we love being a part of this awesome community.
After being open for a short time, we had an overwhelming amount of people bringing us their birds because they could no longer take care of them. That is when B & B Rescue birds was created. The unexpected pandemic created many challenges. Many people were forced to work from home, which resulted in many parrots being surrendered. At the height of it all, we had 187 parrots in our rescue.
As we work hard to get back to a pre pandemic place with the community, our biggest obstacle has been the increase in costs. From food, to produce, toys, cages, utilities, rent and vet care. You will never see our prices on supplies be outrageous. We are not in it for the money. We sell supplies, offer boarding and grooming to help cover costs of the rescue birds and their care. But that limits the number of birds we can help find their forever home.
Since 2017, we have found homes for over 334 birds.
Our mission – to provide Parrots and humans a safe place to learn, discover and thrive. We strive to provide an environment for education & exploration with a culture of acceptance for all parrots and humans and life-long learners. We can’t keep our mission going without support and donations from the community.
Thank you for the Support & Love.
We can’t RESC E without U.
