"Up up up up up up up up, Good boy, Be a good Boy, Hi Pretty Girl, Hello" - Does swear.

​A bird rehabilitation and re-homing center based in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Meika’s Safehouse provides a safe and loving environment for birds in need. We work primarily with parrots but all species of companion or pet birds are welcomed.

When birds are surrendered into our care, we fully assess the bird’s overall health and start some training as appropriate. Most of the birds have not been abused, but because of the level of intelligence they possess, they are often under significant emotional stress when they are relinquished. Birds that have been mistreated emotionally or physically require more rehabilitation and may never be suitable for re-homing.

When we determine a bird is ready to be rehomed, much care and consideration is put into selecting an appropriate home.  When we are able to match a bird with a new family, in most cases, he or she will be adopted out with a cage suitable, as well as the toys and favourite items the bird has grown accustomed to. We also provide a current health certificate, and  microchip most birds before they leave our care.


Our desire is to see the birds that leave our care succeed in their new home, and we are always here to provide advice and assistance. To see the birds we currently have available for adoption, please see below.
