My husband and I have volunteered twice working on small construction projects; first was a misting shed and the second was a four room doghouse for their nightly patrol dogs. While my husband works I spend my days learning what the Oasis staff does everyday twenty-four hours nonstop; taking care of parrots. I have witnessed first-hand the dedication, sensitivity and delicate care that is administered and it is unbelievable. When I started my week of volunteering after the first day I was exhausted from this physically demanding job, but each day improved as I learned from the staff to fall in love with certain birds. This is the Oasis secret; it is the parrots and their caregivers that make you come back again. There is so much love exhibited by both and the constant interaction that makes a volunteer want to be part of this wonderful giving facility. We only wish that it was not so far away from our home. The Oasis needs to be acknowledged for the sanctuary they provide for helping parrots in need.
