Ms Debbie and her rescue are angels for doing what they do! She saved our neighborhood Peahen and gave her a home with a family like her! She is doing amazing things and working hard for so many animals and humans!! We can’t thank you enough!
If you love birds, and those who care for them, this is the most important sanctuary you will ever support.
This is the greatest Sanctuary! We have adopted several birds from here. This a very very caring Sanctuary and Rescue. Every thing they do are for the care and comfort of the birds in their care. Debbie H. Makes sure ate birds are safe, fed the right foods and are given all the careful and correct care they need and deserve. When a bird is adopted,the new parents are completely educated on their proper care and handling of their new birds. If you want to support an excellent Sanctuary and Rescue, this the one to help.
During a difficult time in life, I once more had to move my birds. I couldn’t find anyone to help with the physical move. The people that had my birds were closing down, & had absolutely no interest. There were storms brewing, literally. Debbie realized this from facebook postings & reached out to me. She helped tremendously by organizing my birds, & moving them safely to her sanctuary. This was no small undertaking. I live out of state & relied heavily on Debbie to get my birds to safety. She was & always will be a God send, to the birds first & foremost, but also to the people that love their birds, & sometimes when they are down, she’s there to help pick up the pieces & get their beloved birds to sanctuary.
Debbie takes such incredible care of ALL the birds at this sanctuary. She provides them with a natural environment without predators and medical care when needed. She is so passionate about the welfare of parrots. The sanctuary is divided by breed and personality type which makes it great for all the parrots that live there.
She took in our Umbrella Cockatoo and he has thrived there with the other cockatoos in the sanctuary he is in!!
Thank you Debbie!!!
Birds of paradise helped me immensely. I had a yellow nape amazon for 40 years He was my best friend. He was used to living with other parrots and I could not adopt another , he was self mutilating his feet from anxiety. Birds of Paradise stepped up and took him. He lived in an open aviary and is so happy and no longer biting his feet up. They take such good care of him. Chopped fruit and veggies every day fresh nuts. Please donate to help pay for saving these birds. I’m saving for another big donation now. They rescue and save birds from dire situations. Volunteer to go feed or care for them it is awesome. Please share awesome organization. Your $$ are tax deductible !
Ethical, caring, professional, and knowledgeable avian rescue with great community/volunteer support.
They do wonders on a shoestring budget!
Highly recommend supporting this worthy organization.
I have known Debbie for many years. Her passion for birds has turned into a 24/7 endeavor. She takes in the abused, unwanted, homeless. Everything she does is for them. She adopts out those that can be so they have a second chance to be in a living home. she has my respect and support!
I recently had a friend pass, and what to do with his bird?
So, I called Birds of Paradise, and dropped the bird off.
You could SEE in the ladies actions, her care and concern for this bird. She calmed it down.
I have all the praise for this place.

She does not own it. Others purchased the property. She lives there free with no visible means of income other than donations that should go to the birds. If you support this, you are supporting a felon. It's public record. Please research before giving your money to any organization.
Debbie Huckaby and Birds of Paradise are both amazing! She started from NOTHING and in a short period of time has been able to realize her dream of helping so many birds to be sure they are now in a forever home!!!! She is one of the most caring persons I know, and gives everything of herself to be sure she can help as many birds as she can. She has taught me, personally, so much more than I knew, and in turn I can reach out now and help others, even in a small way. She will NOT adopt out any bird unless that new home is totally, fully vetted!!! I respect her tremendously for all she has done and will continue to do. I wish we had more people like her, really, truly willing to do EVERYTHING for the birds!
Birds of Paradise Sanctuary Owner/Operator Debbie Huckabee is not only the most caring and knowledgeable person on avian welfare but she lives and breathes for the all animal welfare. She has been sure, she will be the voice of the voiceless. I have had the pleasure of volunteering at BOPS and her flights are truly amazing, allowing, once pets the best feeling of freedom a bird in captivity can know and that is flight. I highly recommend BOPS!
