Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
October 10, 2013

Giving loving care to long-lived parrots is the mission of The Oasis Sanctuary.
When our child left home my wife said, "I want to hear 'I love you' everyday from now on." So, I bought her a parrot. That is the joke, but no joke is that we both fell in love with our Amazon Parrot when he came home to live with us. That was in 1998 and I was well into my fifties with a baby parrot that would live at least 50 years. My wife and I looked around for a place to be our parrot's forever home when we were gone. We explored The Oasis Sanctuary and began to volunteer. That, again, was 1998. And we still volunteer for this wonderful organization. Love abounds in this place.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Clone it and the people who staff it so that more parrots could find a forever home.

Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd.
April 17, 2013

My tenure of 15 years full time volunteer/foster care stems from the forward thinking of not only the board of directors but the beyond dedicated staff. Having in place a swift removal of birds and the transportation to do so in the event of a fire or other emergency. Staff with the responsibility of "eyes on" every bird in the section where you are assigned that day. After working hours staff puts in time caring for the stimulation of special kneed birds. Planting of trees that will be fruit barring to be utilized in the future. The weekly staff meetings to discuss any and all birds that might be having a problem so everyone can review and make suggestions. The list simply goes on and on. Every aspect of these employees lives are "for the birds"
