San Diego Bird Rescue

Rating: 3.89 stars   19 reviews

Issues:

Location: San Diego CA USA

Mission: Our Mission is simple. To provide "forever homes" to birds in need. Abused, neglected, uncared for or just can't be taken care of anymore birds are our focus. These beuatiful creatures live up to One Hundred (100) human years! They deserve the respect, love and care we can give them. After all, they didn't ask to be here for our amusement.
Geographic areas served: We serve San Diego and the surrounding areas. But if a bird is need, and not in our area, we will do our best to help or put the owner in touch with a group that may be closer to them
Programs: We speak, lecture, tour and educate the public 4-5 times per week. We visit Children's Hospitals, Schools, Senior Homes etc.

AIG or better known as Greg Galloway. First to confront someone as a grown up adult YOU HAVE TO BE ONE, and since you are nothing but one...a coward yes, and a scammer yes, a very good lier too..
Greg uses volunteers to make money to continue to live his wild night life, he drops his volunteers at Balboa Park and walks away, comes back at the end of the day and picks the birds up. Leaves to have his private time WHILE his volunteers make all the money for him. Greg Galloway is RUDE, and NASTY, when he speaks to you over the phone he hangs on you if HE can't understand what you need. He believes and SHOWS off as a bird trainer, who does NOTHING of any training for those birds. He takes MORE birds than he actually gives out for adoption. Takes ONLY the birds that are in GOOD shape to the Balboa Park place, and leaves the rest, which many are is such a BAD SHAPE in a very small, office like, warehouse at la Mesa office center. Mr. Galloway does not want people to know that HE does NOTHING to care for those birds. His classes are completely RUN by his VOLUNTEERS, and are VERY disorganized. WHILE the volunteers run the place, GREG GALLOWAY takes ALL the money for himself. The birds are not kept as they should. And unfortunately, there is NO law that prohibits him from doing what he is doing....smooth talker convinces people that HE HAS A GOOD HEART, while scamming everyone...he flirts at ALL women he sees at the park..EW..he actually thinks he is all that..he needs to be stopped...but again, lying and scamming people into believing he is actually caring for those birds is not a crime...and as long as people continues to give him money, he'll continue to scam and to lie to everyone around..BEWARE when he asks for money to care for a bird..he will collect MORE that he actually needs...he also uses women to pay for his expenses while he sleeps with them...EW!!! smooth talker oright..BEWARE!!!! PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE GREG M> GALLLOWAY MONEY!!! it doesn't go to the care of the birds....you are just supporting his wild and crazy night playerlife...

In Short, It is our experience that users understand that the web is an open forum and readers should look at the totality of information about a nonprofit when forming an opinion. We've had a bad review or two, so we can relate to the negativity. But when a person has an issue with a business or person, most of us MATURE ADULTS will deal with the person in question. Not hide behind a bogus email and become an online tuff guy/girl. I know many of the folks over there at SDBR and I can guarantee they are treated more then fair. Some have been around for two years or so, so how can it be there?So, people grow up and stop trying to make people misearable. The only thing a bad, spiteful review does is cause hardship for the Rescue and hurt the little ones that need to be taken care of.

I've worked with those guys for about three years. We'd meet at Bird Shows, fundraisers, or Educational events. They are always professional and willing to go out on a ledge to help people & birds. I know personally three accounts were they paid for medical expenses for birds that didnt even belong to them. People had birds and couldnt aford the medical care and those guys at SDBR stepped up and took care of them. Have nothing but love for them. Keep it up guys

We've worked with the gang at SDBR for about three years. They have on every occasion gone above and beyond the call of duty for those birds. They've helped us on numerous occasions with picking up birds, getting them medical care and finding them homes. Their facility is Air Conditioned, bright and the birds have run of the house. Most are out of their cages all day. It truly makes my heart light to see the care they give. They treat all the birds the same be it a parakeet or large Macaw. In closing, these birds deserve the best and SDBR does just that! Well done
