Bob and Carol Dawson, along with their kids, have been caring for birds and other animals for over 20 years. In 1993 they raised cranes and ducks on acreage in Kirkland, but as they transitioned into caring for parrots, they realized they needed a larger area. They purchased a twenty-plus acre parcel in Carnation - grounds which have now been transformed in the manner of an arboretum.

    The work done by the Macaw Rescue and Sanctuary is needed 365 days a year, rain or shine.

We are all part of a large global community. Join us for special events both online and on site!

Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help us by buying your everyday goods from trusted merchants! 

We're expanding! And we need everyone's help to make our dreams come true!
