Beak N Wings, Inc. is a volunteer based 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization and the only licensed shelter for exotic birds (mostly parrots) in the Kansas City area. We are located in Lenexa, KS (a suburb of Kansas City). We are dedicated to helping birds who are being displaced from their homes. Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore only a limited number are housed in our facility in Lenexa. Most of our birds stay in our volunteers homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation.
Because most of our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. We bring our birds out as often as possible to adoption events to allow potential adopters to see them, they are frequently at our facility at 9010 Rosehill Rd in Lenexa, KS on weekends. If you would like to know where we will be taking them, please vist Beak n Wings, Inc. on Facebook.
Our adoption process does take some time, generally a few weeks. As an all-volunteer group we have limited people power and most of our volunteers have full-time jobs as well. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety. You can read our adoption process and FAQ on our website.
We serve Kansas City and up to 150 miles in the area surrounding Lenexa,
