I adopted my Rosie from Florida Parrot Rescue. They were so thorough in the screening process, ensuring I knew how to properly care for a bird, doing a home visit, meeting the foster mom. They really care about their birds. I also knew I was getting a healthy bird because all of their birds are checked by an avian vet before becoming adoptable. The foster mom took the time to talk with me and meet with me, answering questions, giving advice. The whole experience was so worth it! And Rosie is a delight!

We adopted our parrot from Florida Parrot Rescue, they make sure all the parrots are matched up with the right adopter and have ongoing help if needed to get the new feathered friend adjusted to his new home. I now volunteer for FPR and donate when I can to the wonderful caring organization.

I have been with the FPR for over 4 years now. I was looking for a bird to adopt and found FPR. I decided to become a foster caretaker. I did that for 4 years and volunteered. I was also a area coordinator for 3 year. I really love and respect this rescue. They are very professional and care about the birds first. That are also a wonderful group to work with. I would still be working with the group full time if my health was better. I really miss working at the events and fostering.
Thank You Florida Parrot Rescue for all that you do for the Birds.

I would like to Thank FPR for all the great things they are doing in so many communities throughout the state of Florida. I am a foster and continue to be moved by the momentum that FPR provides me with the loving, caring, prompt services to rescued exotic birds. They are a A+ organization!!!!

I have been a volunteer with Florida Parrot Rescue for a few years-I have seen the abused and the neglected but have also seen the dearly loved turned into rescue due to owner illness or death--I have seen these amazing volunteers drop their after work family time or forgo weekend plans to drive hours and do emergency pick-ups, or just to help another volunteer. Florida Parrot Rescue has the most dedicated group of volunteers I have ever seen, they are a true example of team work--it is always about the birds and it is very evident. I am VERY proud to be part of this awesome group!!!

I am a new volunteer of only 8 months with FPR, when I started with them I noticed that all there birds in rescue were very happy birds. The make sure the vets see them no matter how small of a concern you have about one of your fosters. The keep in contact with you to make sure things are going well with you and your foster. I have watched some of our members in action at shows and such, what passion they have for these wonderful creatures. The love that pours out is awsometo watch, and interact with people while there looking for new homes for our fosters are priceless, what love. The birds in our care are not just birds, they are part of our family, and as a parent we always want the best for our family so we choose and choose wisely. The care that is given is way beyond any word I can use. I love when they have there chop partys, everyone including the men get excited about the affair. Its amazing watching them all get together to do a wonderful deed for our foster babies. The bird is the word with FPR.

I have been working as a volunteer with Florida Parrot Rescue for many, many years. This rescue is, by far, above par in everything. All of the birds that come into rescue are vetted, no matter how large or small, with the best medical care. All of the volunteers go above and beyond to make sure each and every parrot receives the best of everything - toys, food, vet care - and that they find the best home possible. The volunteers and fosters are amazing and are what makes the rescue the best it can be. Education is also a top priority and the volunteers work many hours participating in community and adoption events around Florida to spread the word about rescue, adoption and about education in regards to companion parrots. I am proud to be a part of FPR!

I have been working with Florida Parrot Rescue for 4 years now. I can say without a doubt that regardless of the situation or challenge, each and every volunteer gives 100% to help. Every bird, regardless of how large or small, are each given the best of vet care without question and the foster homes are stellar. The requirements for adoption are also very high and every time I have had a foster bird get adopted, I am confident that animal is going to the best home possible that has been checked out thoroughly!

I have been involved with the Avian world in a number of different capacities. I was fortunate enough to meet many of the members of this organization. I was extremely impressed by their dedication, compassion, professionalism, ethics and standards. Everything they do supports the well-being of the Parrots they are seeking to re-home. This group sets the bar high, and is a model that should be followed and studied by many in this field!

Florida Parrot Rescue sets the bar for what to expect from a non-profit rescue organization. They are made up of some of the kindest, most compassionate, dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. They strive to educate the public on proper care, are active in the community, and are always willing to step up when help is needed. They have the years behind them to prove that they are not a "make a quick buck" group that will vanish a few months down the road with your birds and your money. They have used their resources to benefit the birds in their care, and they are 100% volunteer run. There are just not enough positive things I can say about this group. Keep up the good work Florida Parrot Rescue!!!
