Parrots First
November 26, 2012

Parrots First is a clean, safe, fun place for parrots and people. Parrots get the best care, food, veterinary care, socialization and shelter, and people get the best education as to the reality of caring for a parrot properly and the importance of adoption in a time when there are far more parrots in need of homes than there are of qualified homes for them. I love volunteering at Parrots First. Getting to know all the personalities of the individual birds is a treat. Seeing birds who are scared to death of people get to trust them is an experience I can't describe. Seeing birds bond with their prospective new family is wonderful. I bring a lot of toys for the birds and seeing them enjoy them makes me happy. I have the utmost respect for Rose and Frank and have watched them give their lives to parrots for many, many years now. Parrots First is a first class facility with both outdoor aviaries and indoor accommodations that allow parrots to be parrots. I can't say enough about this organization.

PROJECT PERRY
November 4, 2012

Project Perry is the most innovative and well-managed parrot sanctuary in the US. I am a proud donor and supporter. I have known Matt Smith, the Executive Director, for many years and have observed his tenacious, intelligent and steadfast efforts on behalf of parrots continue to gain momentum. He has brought attention to the plight of parrots throughout the US and the world while maintaining a state-of-the-art sanctuary with free flight aviaries built to mimic natural conditions for parrots, The volunteers at Project Perry are equally dedicated and the success of the residents program as well as the adoption program are the result of a cooperative effort of many wonderful people. The attention and care given to each bird is evident in the many stories posted on the website, included in the newsletter and garnered in conversation with others. There are a handful of remarkable parrot sanctuaries in the US, but if I have to choose one, I will choose Project Perry for the reasons already stated.
