My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Oasis Sanctuary Foundation, Ltd., Benson, AZ, USA
I was drawn to the Oasis Sanctuary in May of 2012, when I visited with my sister. My husband and I had been sending donations to the Sanctuary for several years before that, and I wanted to see where my money was going. That first visit was so inspiring and I was thrilled with all the birds and could not help but notice the obvious love and caring of the staff. I came home, made a speech to my bird club about the Oasis, and just generally have been "on fire" about this wonderful organization. This year, my husband and I again visited the Oasis Sanctuary in May of 2013, and now he is inspired and ready to return next year. This place is addictive -- the birds are so beautiful, even the ones that are feather-plucked and tattered-looking, and the staff are wonderful to be around. We got a chance to see the birds in the Pumpkin Trailer and the Hospital Trailer -- some of them had had it pretty rough, but seemed happy and content, knowing they were loved and adored by all the staff. We urge everyone to support this wonderful place, as they use every dollar sent for care of the birdies. I continue to seek out speaking engagements so I can tell others about this deserving group and share some of my passion for the Oasis Sanctuary with others. If I could hop on a plane and visit again tomorrow, I would be out there, the caring and love the staff gives to the birds is contagious! Also, every donation sent, no matter how small, is honoured and welcomed by a wonderful thank-you letter, it makes me want to donate more! ...................written by "Ruffles"
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase their funding, as they are hoping to enlarge ther present Sanctuary to care for 1500 birds in the future. Their "staging facility", where they wash all the food and water bowls and prepare daily food for the birds, is very small and each dish is hand-washed (that's about 1500 bowls each day that need to be washed). They are hoping to raise funds to purchase a dishwasher.
