Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
April 17, 2013

I wrote a review for the Oasis over a year ago, and want very much to repost my thoughts... As a social psychologist, parrot owner, and President of The Long Island Parrot Society (www.liparrotsociety.org), I am very much aware of the love that develops between parrot people and their companion birds. When life circumstances demand alternative care for their birds, finding a new home that provides optimal care is heart-wrenchingly difficult. The Oasis Sanctuary provides the level of care and accomodation that most parrot owners can only dream of for their beloved birds. But the number of parrots and parrot owners they can serve is limited by funding. This past year, their board of directors has pursued several fantastic expansion projects that allow much in demand expansion of accomodations capability... and new plans are in the works... they need the funds to make it all happen. I have visited The Oasis Sanctuary as a volunteer, and was very impressed by the facility and the staff (really flock/family are better words for this devoted group)...the visit was a life-changing experience.. Every bird taken in by The Oasis Sanctuary is an avian life saved, and a human heart healed.
