Originally I found out about Florida Parrot Rescue from a Facebook friend that grows orchids and also has parrots. We had chatted a while about birds when he told me about this rescue group and turned me on to Lorry Burgh (the foster coordinator for South East Florida). Having lived out of the country for many years I did not know there were rescue groups for Parrots. After contacting Lorry I filled out all the paper work and waited impatiently for my home interview. When that was done I immediately took in a 16 year old Congo African Grey. It has been bliss for both of us since. If anyone is worried about the people involved I can tell you that all volunteers and adopters are thoroughly checked out. Having also been a foster parent for children ( little unfeathered humans) I can tell you that there is a lot of paperwork for both. Working with all the volunteers has been a pleasure and I hope to continue working with this great group of people.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
