We are committed and passionate about parrots. we are parrot owners ourselves with a wealth of experience and various levels of knowledge.

The aim of ‘ASP’ is to take in unwanted parrots, to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. We will never turn a bird away regardless of health, condition, age or behavioural problem. Most parrots that are surrendered into our care come from loving homes; a change of circumstances leads to the need to be rehomed.’ASP’ has a network of registered safe houses and welfare officers throughout the UK.
 
 
We are made up of home-based volunteers. Without their support and care we would not be able to do our jobs. To these we are truly thankful for their continuous hard work and help; day or night. We receive no form of income for our work.
We rely on donations and fundraising to cover our veterinary and running costs. If you would like to make a donation you can do so via bank transfer or paypal. Details are below.
 
 
All  Directors of Al Star Parrots Rescue and Rehoming , will do their up most within their capability to put the bird’s health and welfare first and foremost. If we are unable to help we will contact other established charities / rescues to ask for their assistance. In turn we will help others where possible.

The UK Health Security Agency’s (UKHSA) has issued a heat-health alert . The alert will be in place from midday Tuesday 9 August to 6pm on Saturday 13 August for all regions of England.Temperatures are not forecast to reach the record-breaking levels of the most recent heatwave but are expected to rise throughout the week, potentially reaching mid-30 degrees Celsius on Friday and Saturday in the South East, London, the South West, and the East and West Midlands.Dr Agostinho Sousa, Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), said:Temperatures will feel very warm again this week, particularly in southern and central parts of the country.We want everyone to enjoy the warm weather safely when it arrives but remember that heat can have a fast impact on health. It’s important to ensure that people who are more vulnerable – elderly people who live alone and people with underlying health conditions – are prepared for coping during the hot weather.The most important advice is to ensure they stay hydrated, keep cool and take steps to prevent their homes from overheating.Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Tony Wardle, said:Heatwave criteria look likely to be met for large areas of the UK later this week, with the hottest areas expected in central and southern England and Wales on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures could peak at 35⁰C, or even an isolated 36⁰C on Saturday.Elsewhere will see temperatures widely into the high 20s and low 30s Celsius later this week as temperatures build day-on-day through the week due to an area of high pressure extending over much of the UK.Coupled with the high daytime temperatures will be continued warm nights, with the mercury expected to drop to only around low 20s Celsius for some areas in the south.Read more on the forecast from the Met Office.The top ways for staying safe during hot weather:look out for those who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated – older people who may also live alone, and those with underlying conditions are particularly at riskstay cool indoors by closing curtains on rooms that face the sun – and remember that it may be cooler outdoors than indoorsdrink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcoholtry to keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm, when the UV rays are strongestwalk in the shade, apply sunscreen and wear a wide-brimmed hat, if you have to go out in the heatavoid physical exertion in the hottest parts of the daymake sure you take water with you if you are travellingcheck that fridges, freezers and fans are working properlycheck medicines can be stored according to the instructions on the packagingnever leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animalstake care and make sure to follow local safety advice if you are going into the water to cool downHigh temperatures also present a risk of wildfires, especially after long dry periods. People with pre-existing heart and lung conditions such as asthma are most susceptible as breathing wildfire smoke may worsen their symptoms. Children and older people may also be susceptible to health impacts.If wildfire smoke affects your area, avoid or reduce your exposure to smoke by staying indoors with the doors and windows closed.Where possible avoid smoky areas. If you should travel through a smoky area, ensure that the vehicle windows are closed and the air conditioning is switched to recycle or recirculate if possible.Listen out for local news reports and information from the emergency services who will provide advice on the precautions you should take.

The combination of high heat and humidity are particularly dangerous.Birds have no sweat glands. They cool themselves by rapid breathing with their mouths open and by holding their wings out slightly from their bodies. The underneath of a bird’s wing has no feathers and the main wing artery is in that region. If a bird is running a fever or is suffering from heat stress, this area will feel very hot to the touch.If a bird is displaying the effects of heat stress, it needs to be immediately cooled down with a gentle spray of water or damping with a cool sponge under his wings, feet and beak.He should be taken immediately to an avian veterinarian.Keep the car cool with the air conditioner but ensure that the air doesn’t blow directly on to the bird.In mild cases of stress or just to cool a bird down where misting hasn’t worked, take a clean sponge, dipping it into cool water and squeezing it onto the skin under each wing.Do this several times on each side and let the cool cloth sit there for a few minutes between fresh rinses. If the bird relaxes and begins to show signs of enjoying it, use the wet rag to dampen down his bottom half including his chest, feet and belly.Allow the bird to drip dry in a cool, well ventilated area. Air movement is important to allow the bird to continue to cool down but don’t let the breeze blow directly on to him.For those with large aviaries, installing a fogger to mist the entire area will have a massive cooling effect. Alternatively, hose down the floors and walls of the area or put a small sprinkler just on the outside of the aviary. This can make a bit of a mess but your birds will love you for it. Offer shade Be sure your bird’s cage isn’t in direct sunlight, but kept in a shady area.Think of moving their cage into a spot where they will be more comfortable in the summer.Try a tiled room, when it’s hot.Give them a light mistA light mist spray will help keep your bird cool. You can do this manually using a spray bottle if you’re at home throughout the day.Provide a bathBirds love to frolic in cool water to help them regulate their temperature.Add a shallow dish filled with just a couple of centimetres of water into your bird’s cage for it to bathe in. Or, buy a bird bath that can be attached to the cage. Keep the water clean by changing it regularly.Keep things breezyIf you have your bird inside, it can still be quite warm. You might want to consider leaving a fan on (low speed) near their enclosure for a short period. It’s best if you’re nearby just to ensure they are safe.Keep their water fullOn hot days water can evaporate quickly, so check it regularly and keep it full for your feathered friend. Think about installing a second water feeder if needed for the hot months.The wet blanket methodThe wet blanket technique can be used in conjunction with the shaded technique to ensure your bird will stay comfortable throughout the day. Get a towel or two, soak them in water, and then wring them out so they’re no longer dripping wet. Then, drape the towels over the top of your bird’s cage. This will provide a deeper level of shade, as well as a satisfying coolness and rainforest style conditions for your bird.Remove or minimise all other stressesThe heat will already have your bird’s heart rate higher than normal, so make sure that any other pets who might cause your bird a bit of stress are properly out of the way. This won’t keep your bird cool, but it will help to ensure they aren’t exhausted any more than they need to be.EscapeWith the warm weather comes open windows and heavy foot traffic in and out of the house. There are many more opportunities for the escape of un-caged birds than there are in the winter months.Make sure all open windows are screened. Devise a system that clearly alerts all members of the family as to the bird’s whereabouts. One of the main causes of escape is when owner take their birds outside unrestrained.Over and over, people are warned that clipped birds CAN fly, that a loud sound or unfamiliar sight can cause even the most time-tested shoulder-bound bird to fly off in fear. Many are gone for good.Always take your birds outside in a carrier or on a harness.Never get so comfortable that you come to believe you can forecast your bird’s actions.Birds do things for reasons that are their own, which may or may not make any sense to a human being. Many birds fly off terrified and do NOT return to the safety of their owners arms as would be expected, but instead fly further away. You can save yourself and your bird a lot of suffering if you follow this advice.If you are concerned that your bird may be suffering from any illness, including heat related stress. Please call your avian vet immediately.
