Mission:

Feathered Friends Forever provides temporary or permanent placement for birds. All parrots are welcome regardless of species or circumstance. Examples include: health reasons; divorce; medical, as in feather plucking or mutilation; behavior problems, as in screaming, biting, chewing up the home; moving; or any other situation where a bird owner is unable to care for the bird. We provide "birdy camp" while you're on vacation. Military personnel serving overseas can leave their parrot with us until they return. We are also on the Hurricane Evacuation Route to keep birds for displaced familys during natural disasters. We receive no state, federal or local funding and rely entirely on donations from the public and generous folks like you. Check our website and sign up for the monthly newsletter. Open to the public on weekends from 11am to dusk. Group tours by appointment anytime. Please help support these beautiful endangered birds!

Geographic areas served:

We have birds from 42 states including Alaska

On a visit to the rescue in August I found the rescue to be a great place for a family visit. They were doing some renovations but allowed us to take a tour. They have some great flight areas that allow the birds to be real birds.
They allowed us to visit some of the birds inside the porch area and were amazed to hear some of the stories matching the birds.

These people do some amazing work. i was surprised at how much is involved in caring for parrots. i came with no knowledge of birds or parrots of any kind, the volunteers were very nice and even took time out of their day to educate me on some of the birds within their facility. overall, the place was amazing.

I visited the rescue not too long ago, And the place is quite outstanding. The birds are all happy, and what these people are doing is amazing. I couldn't imagine doing what they do.

I can say I have been to the rescue in the last week. I stoped by on.my way to atlanta. I had heard some troubling rumors about the place.They said the were closed for spring cleaning but gave me a personal tour anyway. The birds are well cared for. I have seen inspection records posted on line and are available for anyone to see. The staff was polite and friendly.Currently they are conducting a massive upgrades and renovations. I can understand after 18 years it may be overdue. I see no signs of them shutting down nor did I see any birds with no water, purches, food or toys. This rescue is worthy of my support and it should be for you as well. No rescue this size can survive without your donations and help. The work these poeple do is amazing. please show your support.

This nonprofit has come under fire by some extremely ignorant, hateful, and loathsome people in the past 6 months. Their goal is to get it shut down with no regard for where 1500 birds will go. When confronted about what they plan to do with the birds, they say it's not their problem. That the state will take care of them. The state will sell off the larger, more valuable birds to breeders and terminate the other. Every rescue in and around the state are scrambling to do whatever it is these morons want for FFF, because they know FROM EXPERIENCE just what will happen if FFF is shut down. I happily donate my money to these efforts because I am thinking of the birds. I am truly sorry you monsters would rather see these birds dead than alive, but that is your wrong doing.

This place is filthy and disgusting. The birds are sick, no clean anything. It is a scam and sickening. This place needs shut down. There are too many birds and not enough help

STAY AWAY.. Far far away. No food, no water, no fresh anything. Dirty cages, birds feather plucking from overcrowding. Donate nothing here, the birds do not see any of it

Hell hole. Birdie concentration camp! I ran a rescue and do know what it entails and this place doesn't even rate one star. They use the money given for their own living and the birds don't get any of it! Fresh fruit and veggies? I never saw any. Green water, filthy cages, no toys or enrichment, no heat. Outside flights accessible to predators and huge rat infestation. My only agenda is to tell you what I personally saw.

I talked with the operator a few years back, yes, he knows the talk! Being with a shelter and rescue organization I know the challenges of taking care of animals the proper way. I have had more than one complaint over the years about this organization. The complaints are always the same, this place should be shut down. After talking to the operator, I was convinced that the people there are BLIND! These people truly believe that this is the proper way to care for parrots. Overcrowded enclosures, poor quality food, a rodent problem and not enough toys or perches for the amount of parrots there. We all have parrots die in our shelters. But we are aware of what they died from because we have a limited number of parrots to care for. We have necropsies done and we spend our donated money on the animals in our care and not ourselves. Before ever willing your animals to this place, GO THERE, DO NOT CALL, GO THERE AND CHECK IT OUT. Every time someone calls to go and check out this place, the place gets a cleaning. This helps get the animals in their care a much needed cleaning, fresh food and clean water. People that have recently posted that this place ROCKS all volunteer there and are friends of this place. These people are also BLIND!! Unless they think cruelty is acceptable! PICTURES DO NOT LIE!!! We have posted our pictures to the Internet, they tell the truth!! Call so this place gets a cleaning!!!
