When you read thru all the 5 star reviews, you will notice 2 that have been posted as one star. These were from individuals with personal agendas who have no involvement in rescues, no knowledge of what it takes to operate one but rather a hatred of the work others are doing to benefit the birds. Are there areas that could be "cleaned up"? Sure, on any given day you can find something. But instead of helping, they prefer hating. The "crap food" is one of the best mixes available, with over a ton a month fed along with fruits, veggies and other treats. The birds are well cared for. Do some die? Of course, as do all living things. Most of the birds are abandoned surrenders so ages are not known. Those that may have a problem get the care they need. The rescue has become a valuable resource for people with questions about their personal birds, resulting in many little lives being saved. Social media was recently filled with hate messages and many of those involved in it asked questions, found out the truth and are now realizing the tremendous role this organization plays in providing a home for these parrots. With THEIR help as volunteers and supporters, the "problems" will all be taken care of. The GA Dept of Agriculture conducts routine and spot inspections of the rescue every year as do local agencies. Every one results in a passing grade. So if you see what the haters write, take it with a grain of salt and understand that one person writing 2 fake reviews doesn't mean anything compared to 60 some 5 stars. Further, if you do have a question, please contact the rescue directly and ask. They will be happy to help you, especially if you are a fellow parrot lover.

This is great place for birds that, for whatever reason, lost their home. A beautiful place to view beautiful birds and interact with them.

This horrible place is a total lie, the birds are fed crap food, there are mice and snakes everywhere, they don't care if the birds die, they will tell you lies and dreams, take your money, then try to get more and more... they are more interested in buying and selling guns and ammo for cash, keep no records on anything... they have NO clue what is going on... they don't care!

It is very sad that these people are not in jail, they are nothing what they say they are... The poor birds... my heart breaks for them... the five star ratings are the jerks that work there... Do not put your birds there!!!!

Ways to make it better...

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

Remove all the birds and get them a better place to live

Feathered Friends Forever is a scam. It provides money to support their primary business which is selling guns & ammo under the name Birds ' Bullets. The place is filthy and mouse infested. The birds are fed an 80% sunflower diet. There is NO medical care provided for birds. Go and see this place before you send them a dime. You will be sickened

Feathered Friends continues to expand outdoor aviaries to give permanent resident parrots the best possible environment. This requires a great deal of work by a small staff of volunteer Veterans. Birds are healthy and happy!

After almost 9 years of volunteering I'm still amazed at the things this rescue can do for their parrots with minimal resources. The goal of getting every bird possible into a new outdoor aviary continues to expand the facility. Each new aviary is slightly different, gaining new design ideas and custom modifications for the type birds who will be living there. The result is America's largest "flock" of happy, healthy parrots, many of whom were abandoned, abused or simply "dumped" without regard to what happened to them. While finding a loving adoptive home is the mission for each of the parrots here, the reality is money hungry breeders keep forcing more baby birds into an already overcrowded population. If you don't have room in your home for one of these incredible companions, please find room in your heart to make a donation of time or money to help them survive. It's all Tax Deductible.

They also work with scout groups and local school children by providing a safe, fun environment for community service and other projects. So far all the High School Senior projects done at Feathered Friends have resulted in an "A" or better!!

Feathered Friends is an amazing place, especially considering the very limited resources available. Birds are all healthy and well fed. Outdoor aviaries are being added to provide a real life flock environment and get parrots out of individual cages.

Seeing the success stories like Dakota
really reinforces the ability of this Rescue to help these endangered/exotic parrots live a better life.

Add more volunteers and funding to finish outdoor aviaries faster!

Feathered Friends Forever (.Org) is America's largest nonprofit Rescue and Sanctuary caring for over 1300 endangered/exotic birds of all sizes. It is staffed by 3 full time volunteers and a few 'weekend warriors', all unpaid, and provide the best possible care for all the birds under their care. The new outdoor habitats are amazing with running water, large feeders, mist cooling and infrared heat for the winter. Just watching the parrots in these aviaries makes all the time spent well worth it. The young volunteers really get a chance to learn about these beautiful birds in a safe environment. The newsletter is now written by some of the resident parrots and gives you a "bird's eye view" of what goes on there. Sign up, go visit, volunteer or sponsor a bird!

Absolutely the best in the nation. 21 outdoor aviaries, birds are all happy and healthy. Staff there is great with visitors! Admission is by Donation and it's tax deductible. If you're ever in the Augusta, Georgia area visit them. It's only about 5 miles west of Ft. Gordon.

The Great!

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

many ways. Most important is learning proper ways to handle and care for these beautiful exotic parrots.

Ways to make it better...

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

find ways to get more public exposure (PSA's, TV and media coverage) and get the word out that they need financial Help!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the love you get back from each bird you work with!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all unpaid working because they love parrots, not profits.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really expand so all 700 plus birds could have their own big aviary and life long care could be guaranteed.

Ways to make it better...

they had a pest control company volunteer to kill all the ants.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding since it's all private donations. They don't get federal, state or other support like dog/cat shelters receive.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Ron Johnson deserves recognition for his tireless devotion of 12 years to make sure every abandoned parrot has a loving home.

This charity goes "above" and far "beyond" to help their "guests" that live there on site.

As for us - the guests who visit - we are taught so very much about these exotic birds, spend time visiting, assisting with simple duties as needed, and try to support financially whenever
possible.

They do NEED so many more monetary and other donations though and I'd like to add this to my review as some people just have NO idea of the cost it takes to care for over 1400 (+) different species of birds. It is my hope that more will join in support and / or visit to learn more and simply enjoy a wonderful outing!

The folks that run Feathered Friends Forever are very caring towards the birds they take in. They have worked very hard to build outdoor houses for the different species that are weather appropriate for all year. They are always looking ahead anticipating their needs.

They help unwanted and abused parrots by rehabilitation and rescue. Parrots are a neglected casualty of the pet trade. We need more organizations like Feathered Friends Forever.
