Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.

The Oasis has come so far since its inception in 1997. Today we are permanent home to 750 birds who are provided with life-care, love and all the support needed for a healthy and emotionally contented life. I am proud to be the Founder and a Board member of this standard setting Sanctuary!

Ways to make it better...

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

....be able to bring in more infrastructure and operational funds to expand so that we can help the ever increasing number of birds needing our unique care

The Oasis Sanctuary remains one of the most highly regarded life-care facilities for parrots in the US. With 750 birds in permanent residence, the facility is located in Southern Arizona on 73 acres owned by the birds.
When I founded the facility in 1997, there were no other places in this country anything like The Oasis. I decided that my birds would live at the facility because if it was not good enough for them, why would it be good enough for anyone else's birds?
Today, the sanctuary is in the second generation of administration and will continue into the future, strong and growing, to care for an ever growing number of needy birds.

I have adopted animals from the HSSAZ shelter and have also utilized their spay/neuter and inoculation clinic. I find the facility to be clean, employees knowledgable and concerned about the animals in their care. I am delighted to be a supporter and intend to continue utilizing their services!

Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
October 14, 2012

The Oasis Sanctuary started in my backyard in Phoenix and became the first avian life-care sanctuary in the US to obtain an IRS 501c3. In 1999 we became the first avian sanctuary to become accredited by the American Sanctuary Association and in 2002 were accredited by The Association of Sanctuaries (now Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.) I created the sanctuary to provide care for parrots who otherwise would have no placement options and have provided homes for over 1000 birds over the past 15 years. My attitude has always been "If this is not good enough for MY birds how can it be suitable for anyone else's birds?" In keeping with this ethical belief, all my personal parrots live with the 750 birds, at the sanctuary. While we are s till a way from where I would like the sanctuary to be...it has consistantly been moving in the directions of ideal growth and stability.
