Reviews for Wings of Love Bird Haven Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Wings of Love Bird Haven does good work. I have volunteered there for nearly a year and this is a loving place for birds to stay while waiting to be adopted. The people here truly care about and love the parrots that stay there. Not only that, but they know about parrots and give them the best care possible. Prospective families are taught what to expect from parrots because when a parrot goes home, it is supposed to be forever. I am not just saying this to be nice. I believe in the work that is done at The Haven, and if I saw anything I thought was wrong, I would be the first in line to talk about it. My own bird have benefited from the work done at The Haven as I have learned better ways to care for my own personal four feathered friends.

Anyone Can Give, Even A Parrot!
I consider myself a fortunate parrot. I live with my humans who love me very much. They provide me with nutritious foods, many toys and an enriched environment. Unfortunately, this is not fate of many pet parrots. People often keep parrots without knowing all our needs. Often, we are put in a cage and ignored because we bite or scream for attention. We want to be understood and loved! We are fed an unhealthy diet of seeds. An all seed diet is the equivalent of a human only eating french fries. We need a diet of fresh foods. When people discover we are “too much work”, the wonderful people who work at the Wings of Love Bird Haven come and rescue us. They work tirelessly to give us safe haven and nutritious foods. Best of all they find us a forever home, and educate our new owners about our needs. To do all that is required, takes a lot of money. I give to the WOL out of gratitude. Knowing that I am giving back to those less fortunate than I. This makes me feel blessed and I do so with a happy heart!

My support for Wings of Love Bird Haven means life... the life of these beautiful creatures. They come into this world being given wings to fly- yet humans have for the most part taken this away. They are put into small cages, feed a single pelleted morsel with no variance of variety and are given little time for exercise or sunshine. Their cages are not cleaned until they are disgustingly dirty and the only time that is spent with them is when they are wanted to be put “on show”. Then people wonder why they scream, bite, pluck their feathers and mutilate their own bodies.

As a financial supporter of Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. I know that my contributions are helping to give many birds a better life. Not only the birds in their care but others around the world as they continue to educate people on the best care possible for these sentinel beings.

One specific donation memory for me was in early 2011 when Wings of Love and another local rescue did a seizure of 40 or 50 birds at one time. There were cockatiels, Quaker, Conure, Amazons, Eclectus and Macaws. These birds were being housed inside a small, filthy and totally pitch black building. They were in terrible condition. One pair of Eclectus was found with over 40 eggs in their nestbox. Of course the birds were in such poor health that there was no way the eggs could be fertile but just the thought of one hen laying that many eggs made me cry.
The female’s name was Angel. This sweet little girl crawled around on her belly- most likely due to calcium deficiency. An Angel she is. Even though life has dealt her a bad situation she has the sweetest disposition. She was adopted into a new home and to this day is being loved on and pampered by her owners. She still crawls on her belly... she still has health problems including heart problems. She still has to have medicine every day. Despite it all... she is an Angel. Her owners live in an Assisted Living Community... she is loved and pampered by the entire community.

Why do I support Wings of Love Bird Haven?
Not only do the funds allow them to keep their doors opened and able to continue taking in these birds that need their care, it also allows them to continue to educate the public as well as other bird owners on the best diet, proper housing requirements, need for sunshine and exercise and proper vet care; things that literally save the lives of these birds over and over again as new owners learn and follow these better guidelines. Their mission... in a nutshell is TRIPLE R-E. This stands for Rescue-Rehabilitation-Re-home and Education.

Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. has taken in, rehabilitated and adopted out hundreds of birds over the past 13 years. This coming year, with the help of generous donors they are wanting to do even more. They are currently raising funds to purchase acreage so that even more birds can be helped. As of now birds are being turned away weekly due to lack of space. With my donation, and the donations of like-minded people around the world the Haven will be able to provide more homes and better education for the birds in their care and around the globe.

Bird Haven is amazing! They have rescued so many parrots, are always careful to quarantine the new birds and go the extra mile for each bird. De, the director, has a unique talent with parrots and works hard to help those birds with behavior problems. She truly cares about the birds and provides them individual attention every day. Adopting parents are screened carefully to ensure they are a good match with the parrot and will provide the parrot with a loving home. I HIGHLY recommend this charity!

Bird Haven is dedicated not only to rescuing parrots and finding them loving homes, but also to educating parrot owners on training their birds. De is excellent at helping troubled birds overcome their issues. She truly loves all the birds that come through the center and helps to find them a great forever home where they will be loved and cared for.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I rescued 2 yellow naped amazon parrots and had them as pets for over 10 years. But, they never bonded with me and then my scheduled changed where I was out of town more often than I was home. I decided it was time to give the birds an opportunity to bond with someone and to have the attention they truly deserved. De accepted the two birds, worked with them to help them acclimate to their new setting as well as learn new tricks. She found each of them a home and both are now blissfully happy. :-)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them get more funding so they could rescue more birds.

In Dec. 2010 I inquired about adopting an Africian grey. Well as it happened De had a rescue of a "package deal" I was like huh me I could never own a Macaw! The deal was these two birds ha to stay togetther it was and african grey AND a catalina macaw! I fostered them for a short period and then decided I could bar to let them go. So we fully adopted them. De was a great help with the ins and outs of keeping these birds safe in an enviroment that these BEAUTIFUL animals deserve!

I called to inquire about rescuing a parakeet and spent time talking with De. She asked me questions that helped not only her but myself realize how open I was to adopting a parrot. She introduced me to Taz, a nine year old quaker parrot who has brought such a joy to my household. I feel so thankful that De made such a wonderful match. She is a very gifted and caring individual. The bird world is lucky to have her.

I first came across this charity because I was interested in adopting a parrot. Later as I became more involved in a role of board member because we share similar idea of saving life. The founder - De, who has helped many pet birds rehabilitation and re-home. I am grateful for people like De to step out and providing TLC to those animals.

WINGS OF LOVE is a necessity due to the misfortune of these birds, through no fault of their own. Most people do not think about the fact that many of these birds outlive dogs many times over. De has the perfect temperment, personality, and outlook for this important work. I am very thankful this organization exists and hope that the need for it will decrease at some point in the future. Until then, I encourage anyone who can help with support in any way, will do so as soon as possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the positive difference in the behavior of the birds after being in a caring environment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

De should be cloned, well and often, and by someone who knows how.
