About Us

If it has feathers, we are all about it! Simply put, we are the Bird Nerds of the animal rescue world. Our rescue focuses on injured or permanently disabled domestic birds: mainly parrots, ducks, geese, doves, and chickens. We provide longterm care and a place to call home for these often-overlooked animals. Many of our parrots come from situations of neglect or abuse, causing them to have both physical and behavioral issues. Home Sweet Home Animal Rescue of Tampa Bay is their special-needs avian sanctuary.
