Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Bird Sanctuaries

Mission: The Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is dedicated to the care and well being of parrots and other exotic birds. We do not breed, sell, trade, or offer for adoption the birds in our care. Instead, we endeavor to provide them with a permanent home that allows them to mingle with other compatible birds in outdoor open-flight aviaries. We also strive to provide permanent, caring homes for birds with special needs, including those with physical challenges or behavioral issues. Finally, we are committed to raising public awareness regarding the moral responsibilities and physical demands of keeping parrots or other wild animals as pets.

Results: We have made great strides this year in our Fundraising efforts towards the much needed expansion of FEBS! With your help we will be able to "Spread our Wings" in 2013!!!!

Programs: Education, Great American Teach In, Internships for Future Avian Field, Fundraiser Events

This is a wonderful facility with awesome individuals that work it. The birds are so fortunate to have this kind of care and so are the individuals who find themselves unable to care for their birds. Great job!

All I can say is "wow". I was so impressed when we visited this Sanctuary with a friends that boards her birds there when she goes North in the summer. It was amazing clean and the birds were pretty friendly too. Pat dedication is unreal. Anyone that has wondered what to do with their birds, this IS the place for them.

MY Family has known Patiricia and FEBS for over a year. When we met we really wanted a Bird, after meeting Patricia and having her tell us the "real Deal" with owning such a pet, we did not make that purchase. We Love the work that they are doing and the education they provide is invaluable!

I am so glad I found this avian sanctuary as my birds may outlive my husband and me. We hope to visit the sanctuary next year when we are in the area. We have a 20 year old moluccan cockatoo who doesn't see very well despite cataract surgery. She is a plucker and we have spent lots of money and time (making vests to protect her chest) to get her to this age. She does not eat seed or pellets, and she eats only home cooked meals like pasta, sweet potato, eggs, etc. Now we know and feel more secure that there is a place that could take care of her if she outlives us. The sanctuary will be in our will.

After my Mom died last year and we were left with the legal matters resulting in these situations, I decided it was time to ensure my two amazons would be well taken care of should something happen to me. The only way to do that was to find a sanctuary that met my standards in a place that provided a natural environment, with no adoption options; nor breeding and quality standards for their care and well being. And a big plus with their efforts in eduacationing the public concerning exotic birds. I researched the internet and found FEBS to be the place. I contacted them through email and Patricia responded right away. I was able to schedule a tour and was very excited about what I saw and learned concerning their organization. I will be completing all the proper documentation and will be donating to and supporting FEBS to ensure my beloved amazons will have a place to go, best suited for their happiness, when I can no longer provide for them. I am so grateful FEBS exists. "Henry" & "Khaki" have been my only outstanding concern and now that weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you so much Patricia for all you do!

I am so thankful for FEBS and the time and hard work they put into caring for all the birds. People do not realize how much time and work goes into caring and providing for exotic birds. I hope to some day place my birds in this sanctuary so they can live the rest of their life with others like them.

I've visited the sanctuary many times and have found it to not only be quite hospitable to the birds, but an amazing site to see. Patricia is a very warm hearted woman who gives her life to care for her birds and children. For finding a place that can help a bird find peace and the attention it needs; there's no better place than here.

I love this organization and all that they do for our feathered friends. So many people do not understand these highly personable and intelligent creatures. They are certainly high maintenance and many people who mean well (and unfortunately, some who do not) get parrots as pets and are unable to keep them for a multitude of reasons. Our fathered friends DESPERATELY need organizations like FEBS. Thank you guys so much for what you do and keep up the good work!

Just one visit and you can clearly see the love put into making this a haven for exotic birds. The staff there must work extremely hard to keep that place looking as beautiful as it does. I took my daughter for a tour of the facility and she loved it. My hat is off to Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary and their staff. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
