RAPP Support serves as a before and after support and educational system for the Quaker Parakeet Society Re-Home and Placement Program (QPSRAPP).As a RAPP bird is placed, the adopting volunteer will be asked if they would like to be assigned a RAPP Support mentor. The mentor will help, via email, with any problems that may arise with their newly adopted Quaker.At times, people who contact RAPP are not sure that they truly want to give up their Quaker. Sometimes they are simply having a difficult time adjusting to the ways and needs of their Quaker. After years of being a "perfect" bird, some Quakers can develop habits which can be confusing to the owner, such as cage territorialism and hormonal swings. A RAPP Support mentor can be helpful and supportive at this time. Although our job as RAPP volunteers is to place a bird who cannot stay in its present home for whatever reason, our most important job is to do what is best for the bird referred to RAPP. Often times, it is to help keep that bird healthy and happy with the people that he or she loves and is familiar with.
The Quaker Parakeet Discussion list is one of the oldest and largest avian discussion lists on the internet. There is no better place to discuss Quakers. Members include behaviorists, Quaker breeders, owners, enthusiasts, and people wanting to learn more about Quakers to see if a Quaker is the right bird for them. QPList members support fellow members, sharing Quaker experiences, information and ownership support.

QPS believes supporting members through education and research promotes better, healthier, and longer lasting relationships between Quakers and owners.
One of the goals of QPS and its committees, is to help educate Quaker owners, potential owners, and the general public on the basic care and behavior of Quaker Parakeets in the home and in the wild. QPS hopes, that by offering basic information and solutions, members and non members will be encouraged to continue their research beyond this site, offering their companion Quaker, or future companion Quaker, as healthful and happy an environment as possible. Always double check information offered, check resources and links, and make good, positive choices which work best for you and your Quaker.
