Like a strong table has 4 legs to hold it up Feathered Friends Forever has 4 pillars of strength to keep it going-Big Bird Ron, Tammy, Larry and Bob. The success is because of the daily endless hours of work, energy and expertise put forth by these 4 and the continuing help from organizations and individuals with their work, donations or both.
If you would like to see beautiful Parrots you could get a plane ticket to south America, Australia and New Zealand at a lot of expense to "Hope to get a glimpse" of some Parrots or you could come to this Rescue to have a guaranteed enjoyable visit.

Ways to make it better...

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

Encourage more individual teenagers and adults to volunteer and get to really know these birds as they do their family pet and perhaps that would kick off a whole new direction in life and make new friends.

We have been members of FFF for several years. We are both retired biologists and do reptile rescue and rehabilitation primarily with turtles as well as educational displays at local events and attend national meetings regarding turtle conservation. Besides turtles, our other love is parrots. We have two parrots of our own.

When we found out about FFF, we just had to visit. We have visited all types of facilities from roadside zoos, to world class zoos, sanctuaries, etc. all over the world. We were blown away about how well the parrots were kept and the personal care the volunteers were giving to them. It was heartwarming to see the recovery of plucked and abused parrots over the years to parrots that will now come up to the side of their cage to see you to trust in a human being after what they have been though. We are particularly impressed about the design of the new flight enclosures with the water running through them and the misters. It is really great to see the parrots flying free in the large flight cages and interacting with each other.

Although hours away, we try to visit whenever we can. Every time we come, there is something new....new birds, new enclosures, new stories about them. This is a very special place that certainly got our attention that we will continue to support.

I would not change a thing except to encourage others to support this worthy sanctuary and volunteer or donate whatever they can to help.

I have been vivsiting FFF since 203 when they 300 parrots and watched them grow. I have seen more than once, Ron handle an incoming bird that was said to be mean and he just reaches in and brings out a new feathered friend. I call him the Bird Whisperer because he has a gift that birds instictavally know that they are safe. The rescue has changed and grown through the years, but Rons heart still has love for each and every bird. His staff are great and give 12 + hours each day with no pay but lots ove birdie love. High five to FFF.

Over the past 7 years I've watched the flock nearly double in size as more and more parrot owners faced various problems and had to place their feathered companion at the Rescue. Each one is treated with the same caring and love, regardless of size or circumstance.

Watching the happiness
when a parrot picks a new adoptive family makes the day for all the volunteers. It's even better when the family sends an email or comes back to visit and tells everyone how much they enjoy their new companion.

The most rewarding part is working with some of the severly abused or disfunctional birds and having that breakthrough moment when trust is finally established. Here's an example:

What a great place! Hundreds of wonderful parrots, some who greet you when you arrive. The "tour guide" knew many of the birds by name. Everybody looked happy and healthy. The fact that they can "be birds" in large outdoor aviaries was very impressive.

The Great!

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

adopting one of their birds.

Ways to make it better...

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

get them a full time PR person or 2.

More feedback...

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

meeting all the people and parrots

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

all very friendly and knowledgeable - and not one of them gets paid! Everybody there is a volunteer!

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

Make an even better life for their feathered friends.

Ways to make it better...

the TV station was filming it.

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

Finding funding and more volunteers. Parrots require daily care and they need more support.

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

Send them a donation!

We had to make a really tough decision several years ago. Our Murph was sick and needed a flock. She's lived at Feathered Friends for awhile now and frankly probably always will. I love the silly bird enough to understand it's the best thing that ever happened to her. PLEASE consider a donation to a very worthy and legitimate place for a lot of needy birds. Wendell Hall

It was good to see that every dollar donated went directly to the care and welfare of the parrots. All the volunteers are unpaid Veterans. There are no salaries, unlike other "charities" with overpaid CEO's. It's hard to believe what they do to care for over 1300 birds every day. Some lucky families have adopted a new companion from them and that's an interesting process to witness. You can also get their newsletter by signing up on the website www.featheredfriendsforever.org

Best rescue for your bird, very concerned and helpful staff. 100% non paid staff, they deserve a some financial assistance, feeding all those birds with just donations has to be tough.

Great place to visit, well maintained and all the birds look great. These people are doing a great job. They have around 800 birds from 43 or 44 states. Alot of endangered species, some mutilators and pluckers. I have seen them transform pluckers to full feathered birds.

Big Bird (Ron), Tammy, Larry and Bob have been very interesting, informative and helpful in our transition to the local area from out of state. We have 8 parrots and didn't know what to do until we can get our own place. Thank goodness they swooped down from the sky to help us out since June 2012 (and still ongoing). I couldn't get to fully appreciate this bird sanctuary on only 1 visit so I recommend anyone to get an annual membership to visit often and make friends with more and more of the the personalities and beauties here. You'll hear some common phrases " Hi Casper", "Whatta ya doing", "bye" etc and view some great acrobatic moves from some of the showoffs.
