Parrots are among the longest lived members of the Animal Kingdom and are also among the most popular pets. They require a level of care that the ordinary person that obtains them as a pet is generally unaware of or unwilling to provide. Because of their nature, they often do not turn out to be the pet the owner expected. As a result, parrots are often neglected or mistreated. Because of their long life, those fortunate to survive often outlive their owners. The result is that there are many parrots that really need competent care for long periods of time. The Oasis Sanctuary provides such care. The people that operate the Sanctuary are caring competent people and the facilities that the Sanctuary provides for its birds are extraordinary. Once a parrot is taken in by the Sanctuary, it is there for the rest of its life and it is gradually acclimated to life as a parrot. The Sanctuary operates solely on donations. I have not seen a better solution to caring for a type of animal that should not be allowed to be kept as pets. The Sanctuary deserves the best help they can get and the appreciation of all of us.
