I have a gift shop that I like to use to help parrot rescues. But with the recent publicity regarding rescues that may not be good for the birds or completely aboveboard, I felt I had to pick several quality ones to investigate and be sure they met my expectations for what I'd like to see in a rescue. Not only did Florida Parrot Rescue meet those expectations but exceeded them. I am pleased and honored to endorse them and help them raise funds for their operation. They are managed well, their standards are sound, and their fostering system helps ensure that facilities never get overcrowded. Their management truly operates with a love of parrots and goes the extra mile to ensure that potential adopters are ready for life with a parrot. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in the area looking for a parrot to adopt or someone looking for a good, worthy place to put their money.
I contacted the president of the rescue inquiring about adopting and ended up fostering and coordinating for 4 1/2 years now. I absolutely love this rescue. It is well run with a lot of volunteers who love these birds and welling to help anyway they can. It makes me proud to be part of this rescue.
I haven't been a volunteer that long only about 3 months now but I can tell you the volunteers at FPR put their heart and soul into this if it wasn't for them we would have so many homeless birds with FPR were giving them a second chance I will continue to volunteer because I believe in giving second chances!
I've been a foster and volunteer for Florida Parrot Rescue for almost two years now, and I still say with pride that I am with them. FPR operates with the mentality of "birds first". No bird is too big a challenge or too small of market value to be saved. It also has several passionate and knowledgable people in the ranks to learn from and lean on.
I have worked at several Parrot Rescues and this one is by far the best ever. The dedication and passion shown by each and every volunteer makes them a successful Organization!
