We have a huge problem in the U.S. with companion birds needing homes. The Oasis is the largest bird sanctuary in the country and takes in hundreds of birds that need homes. Every bird is treated with love and respect. They have beautiful free flight aviaries for many of the birds and are working on creating more. Every bird has companions, fresh food, and plenty of toys for intellectual stimulation. The staff is loving and dedicated. The place is clean and well-kept. I've been there in person and witnessed what a wonderful place it is. But they can't do it without help. Costs are astronomical. They need all the help they can get.

change nothing except get them more funds!

Oasis Sanctuary was founded to give parrots with no place else to go a permanent sanctuary. Parrots are long lived and most will go through multiple homes in their lifetimes. They have complex needs that few people are able to meet in their homes. The Oasis is able to house about 1000 birds that have no place else to go and give them good, happy homes. They are a bright, shining star. The compassion and dedication of the team there is evident in everything they do. I'm proud to be a long-time supporter of this outstanding organization.

Wonderful care for our feathered friends. It's heartwarming to know that there are passionate caregivers for displaced birds. Oasis Sanctuary shows how kindness, compassion, love, and quality care can make a difference for so many precious birds that would otherwise suffer.

I first learned about the Oasis Sanctuary from my dear friends Lynn and Rick Woerpel. The work the Oasis does is exceptional. Caring for so many displaced parrots, due to their owners death, serious illness, loss of home or livelihood. I've read and heard so many heartwarming stories of how the Oasis has helped another precious parrot in an unfortunate situation. I myself have a wonderful little girl (umbrella cockatoo) that will be 23 years old on the 19th of this month. It's great to know that if something happened to me, she would have a place where she would be cared for and loved by the many wonderful caregivers at the Oasis. Thanks Oasis, for being there for so many in need!

I am a foster parent to an abused 16 year old cockatoo who has been in five previous homes, so I know the issues and time I have struggled with having this bird in our life. I cannot imagine the ongoing support that the Oasis gives to over 700 birds to never have to go through being placed in another home and learn to trust all over again. They are an amazing facility who endeavor to give these parrots an enriched lifestyle including the food, shelter and companionship parrots need.

I really wish they were not so far away as I would love to be able to visit them.

This is the only one of it's kind in size and scope to give parrots who cannot be rehomed a permanent place to live out their long lives. They have a wonderful aviary environment where the birds are housed with like species of the same sex, given enrichment items, medical care, fresh air and room to fly. They also accept birds that are rescued from bad situations and go out of their way to help get them rehoused. They welcome volunteers to their facility and hold an annual open house/education event. They are run by a board and have staff members who live on site. I have been a donor for many years and cannot say enough good things about this organization.

I have yet to see this wonderful place, it is so close and yet so far. I know that if my children ever need to go live with someone other than myself ,the oasis sanctuary is where I want them to go.

The Oasis represents excellence in the care and love given to displaced birds. The staff is dedicated to giving the birds the best care and diet. I was fortunate that The Oasis agreed to give my beloved gray a forever home when I could no longer care for her. They are so good about providing up-dates on her giving me peace of mind that she is cared for.

I had to relinquish my beloved African Grey after 14 years due to health. I had my dear friend since she was 12 weeks old. I spent 9 months doing extensive research to find a "forever" home for my Angel. I spoke with pet psychologists, vetrinarians, breeders, state governing groups, other sanctuaries and many more. Never did I hear anything but praise for the Oasis. Once they were chosen, we went through their processes. Believe me, the Oasis has standards and they adhere to them. Their love and commitment to birds is exlempary. Diet and care for the birds (and other strays that come along) is excellent. My Angel is well cared for. They are so good about keeping me informed with anecdotes and pictures. I see that her life is good. They need help! Care and dedicated staffing doesn't come without a price tag. Donations are used wisely - for the good of the birds. Donations to The Oasis Sanctuary Foundation are needed and beneficial.

I was drawn to the Oasis Sanctuary in May of 2012, when I visited with my sister. My husband and I had been sending donations to the Sanctuary for several years before that, and I wanted to see where my money was going. That first visit was so inspiring and I was thrilled with all the birds and could not help but notice the obvious love and caring of the staff. I came home, made a speech to my bird club about the Oasis, and just generally have been "on fire" about this wonderful organization. This year, my husband and I again visited the Oasis Sanctuary in May of 2013, and now he is inspired and ready to return next year. This place is addictive -- the birds are so beautiful, even the ones that are feather-plucked and tattered-looking, and the staff are wonderful to be around. We got a chance to see the birds in the Pumpkin Trailer and the Hospital Trailer -- some of them had had it pretty rough, but seemed happy and content, knowing they were loved and adored by all the staff. We urge everyone to support this wonderful place, as they use every dollar sent for care of the birdies. I continue to seek out speaking engagements so I can tell others about this deserving group and share some of my passion for the Oasis Sanctuary with others. If I could hop on a plane and visit again tomorrow, I would be out there, the caring and love the staff gives to the birds is contagious! Also, every donation sent, no matter how small, is honoured and welcomed by a wonderful thank-you letter, it makes me want to donate more! ...................written by "Ruffles"

Ways to make it better...

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

increase their funding, as they are hoping to enlarge ther present Sanctuary to care for 1500 birds in the future. Their "staging facility", where they wash all the food and water bowls and prepare daily food for the birds, is very small and each dish is hand-washed (that's about 1500 bowls each day that need to be washed). They are hoping to raise funds to purchase a dishwasher.

These folks are passionate about saving the birds and allowing them to live in (as close to a) natural environment as you can get. They don't attempt to rehome the birds (how many adopted birds, due to noise, life span or other factors, end up back in shelters?), and they certainly don't breed them.

Ways to make it better...

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

strongly encourage increased use of social media such as Facebook. Keep the posts short and frequent - lots of bird pictures - keep Oasis in the forefront of everyone's minds!

We have visited twice and I always go away knowing that the birds have the best life they can thanks to all the workers who give 110%. What a great place for birds without a home to live out their life.

I have donated to The Oasis Sanctuary for several years. I know that my funds are being well spent on care for very needy parrots (and other animals they house). I have two parrots at the sanctuary whom I sponsor. Every year, these stunning creatures look healthier and happier. They have benefits appropriate for their condition. They are allowed interactions with their own kind, free flight, fresh food, and veterinary care as needed. Thank you Oasis for giving them forever homes.

One of the nicest things about the Oasis is how they Personalize the stories of many of the birds they help. Visit their website and read about the travels and travails of Gulliver and how he finally found his forever home. Read about Pong Yo and keep tissues handy because you will surely cry over the story of this beautiful, remarkable little bird. Help this charity with your donations because they do so much good.

To best understand the Oasis Sanctuary I urge you to visit their website, see their birds and read the stories of birds they have helped. The wonderful part about Oasis is that they provide permanent homes for birds who have been abused/neglected or even harmed. Their sponsorship program is wonderful. Over the last several years we have sponsored 6 birds. Please help them get the support and recognition they so richly deserve
