Having two birds myself, I fell in love with the Oasis Sanctuary through their wonderful newsletters. For several years my husband and I supported the Oasis financially and dreamed of one day visiting. Finally, in May 2012 I was fortunate enough to visit the Oasis for a day. I felt like I had "come home" and quickly fell in love with all the birds and was so impressed with the care and dedication of the staff. The Oasis is truly a wonderful place and all the staff are top-notch. Since that time, I have become a "long-distance ambassador" for the Sanctuary (I live in Florida). I have given a talk to one organiization about the Oasis and have approached others about giving a program. My husband and I continue to support the Oasis financially and I dream of finding an avenue to let others know about this wonderful place where parrots find a loving home to live out the rest of their lives. Raising funds for the birds of the Oasis is very important to me. I hope to let everyone know that this is one place where every dollar given is spent for the benefit of the seven hundred and fifty birds in their care. I would not hesitate to place my birds with the Oasis if the time comes when we are no longer able to care for our two "loves" , knowing that the staff will do every thing in their power to keep our birds safe and happy. I feel very "blessed" to have discovered this wonderful place and have had a chance to visit and see their sanctuary, look forward to visiting again very soon.
