About PEAC

Parrot Education & Adoption Center (PEAC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to educating current and potential bird owners on the proper care of companion parrots.  Based in San Diego and covering all of Southern California, PEAC began operations in 1996. Unwanted or found parrots are evaluated to see if the parrot’s personality fits well into our foster program.  We do the evaluation by reviewing a bird questionnaire that the current owner fills out and by visiting the bird in its current home, in an effort to identify triggers if the parrot has some behavior issues.  If the parrot is found to not fit well with our program or we currently have no openings we will do our best to help the owner in finding another organization that might be able to help.

To learn how you can help PEAC, please select Help Now, from the menu above.

Please consider helping a parrot in need! All donations are tax deductible.

Our Sponsorship Program is dedicated to the memory of “Chicken,” a Festive Amazon. Chicken was adopted by Layne David Dicker and Sally Spencer. Chicken succumbed to lung cancer in his twenty-eighth year of life. He was much loved and greatly missed.

Through word of mouth, PEAC’s excellent reputation has become widely known. With this attention comes an increase in the number of birds needing our help. The increased volume of birds coming through our door has added an additional financial burden on the organization. Each one of our parrots requires an initial veterinary expense totaling around $300, in addition to the cost of food and toys.
