Avian Welfare Coalition
Dedicated to the welfare and protection of captive birds since 2000.
The Mission of the Avian Welfare Coalition (AWC) is to raise awareness about the plight of parrots and other captive birds and to serve as an educational resource for the humane community, law-makers, and the general public.
Download and print AWC flyers and fact sheets to help spread the word about avian welfare in your community.
Parrot abuse and/or neglect can occur anywhere these birds are kept or displayed – pet shops and other retail stores, breeding facilities, bird marts, private homes, hotels, rescue facilities, veterinary offices, schools, nursing homes, zoos, exhibits, and in laboratories.
