Shelters and Rescue Feathered Friends Sanctuary is a non profit organization committed to provide a safe haven including proper veterinary care, nutrition, socialization, physical & mental stimulation, and clean, spacious living areas. Space is not only provided in our home, but in our hearts.




Parrots have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years, and too many of the people who are drawn to their beauty are unaware of the challenges of keeping an animal only a generation or two removed from the wild. Birds are messy, and some can be very loud. Unless purchased from a reputable breeder or bird shop that understands the importance of good health and socialization and proper handling after purchase, problems such as biting can pop up, and few bird owners know enough about normal bird behavior to cope. Birds are also given up when a bird owner marries, or when children arrive, or sometimes just because the owner tires of the work involved in keeping such a high-maintenance pet. Then, too, the long lives of parrots can leave them vulnerable – with life spans measured in decades, some birds outlive their owners. For all these reasons and many more, too many parrots end up going from home to home before ending up in a place like the Fine Feathered Friends Sanctuary, Inc, if they’re lucky, or facing euthanasia if they’re not. Few community shelters and humane groups are equipped to handle birds, which makes parrot sanctuaries even more important.
