Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
May 21, 2013

I am a retired Canadian zookeeper who travelled in a motorhome around the U.S. & Canada for two years in 2006 & 2007, stopping along the way to visit various animal sanctuaries. I was greatly impressed with the care and compassion shown to the birds that I met at The Oasis Sanctuary. Many people do not understand what it takes to care properly for birds that often outlive their owners and Sybil Erden has gone to great measures to make their lives comfortable, especially for the birds that have behavioural problems (feather plucking, etc.).
I have no hesitation in recommending the Oasis Sanctuary as a worthy recipient of donations.

FELLOW EARTHLINGS WILDLIFE CENTER INC
November 28, 2012

Fellow Earthlings care very much for meerkats and take in animals that have been rejected by their troops in zoos. Meerkats came to be popular from the tv series Meerkat Manor and are fascinating creatures, which have had the privilege of raising as a former zookeeper, and of seeing in the Kalahari. Fellow Earthlings are special people and have the ONLY meerkat sanctuary in North America and deserve support for their work as a nonprofit.

Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
November 13, 2012

While travelling around the USA in my motorhome, I came across the Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, and was immediately impressed with the caring attitude of Sybil Erden and the volunteers towards all the birds, especially the ones that had suffered in the past . As a former zookeeper I could appreciate the amount of work needed to care for all the various birds, and the attention paid to their individual needs. These abandoned and neglected birds were taken in, with the full knowledge that they have a long lifespan and that there would be many years of dedication ahead to care for them. I have no hesitation in recommending the Oasis Sanctuary Foundation Ltd. as a great non-profit organization.
