Shelters and Rescue With over 800 birds, Feathered Friends Forever is now America's largest nonprofit Rescue & Sanctuary for abandoned, abused and unwanted parrots of all sizes.

FFF is working to double the size of Parrot Paradise Park. 5 acres are being cleared to install new state of the art outdoor aviaries. These will include running water streams, permanent metal roofing, misting systems to reduce summer heat and automated feeding systems. The first of this design houses cockatoos and they love it!

Shelters and Rescue By JOHN SCOTT

PET lovers have dumped parrots worth up to £3,000 each because of bird flu fears, it emerged last night.

A sanctuary was given 23 of the unwanted birds in a week — FIVE times the usual number.

The pets, including lovebirds, budgies, a blue and gold macaw, two African greys and an Amazon parrot are worth £20,000.

One cockatoo was left outside with a message reading: “Please look after Barney. We have a little child and don’t want to get bird flu.”

Dating agency for parrots

Shelters and Rescue An ornithologist who set up a dating agency for lonely parrots says it has been a huge success.

Rita Ohnhauser has already brought 1,300 lonely hearts together in Berlin and unlike other matchmakers she knows her pairs will never split - because the birds mate for life.

"In the wild parrots search out a life partner and then spend every minute of the day with them, but when they are kept as pets they are mainly alone and get very depressed," said Ohnhauser.

She added that parrot owners across Germany had started bringing their feathered friends to the sanctuary to find a mate, and she currently had 150 parrots busy "getting acquainted" with other birds.

"Birds experience love at first sight just like humans. But others make a really careful choice before entering a relationship. It can take up to three months," she said.

Shelters and Rescue By Naomi Havlen; October 2, 2005

It's a bittersweet farewell this weekend for about 150 of the Roaring Fork Valley's most colorful, feathery residents.

The birds that live at The Gabriel Foundation, a parrot rescue and adoption agency located in Emma, have found a new home in Elizabeth, 35 miles south of Denver. The nonprofit had been taking in abandoned or mistreated parrots in their Eagle County and then Pitkin County locations, and adopting them out to good homes nationwide, but was cited for land-use violations by both counties.
