East and Kim Hannah are a godsend to the avian world. I met Kim after my African Grey, Mali, died at age 23. I needed to see parrots again and experience the magic only they can provide so I took a drive to East and was blown away. The birds are cared for so lovingly and so well! The feeling of happiness is just exhilarating when you walk in the building. I will continue to support this gift of a facility that is so badly needed.

My husband and I moved to Nashville in 2006 and my first search was for a parrot rescue organization to be a part of! We brought two birds with us, long-time family members, have adopted two more from EAST since moving here, and sponsor Andy, a lifetime resident of EAST.

I am so proud to be part of this sanctuary's team led by Kim Hannah. She and her BFF have been amazing in providing rescue, re-home services, and a forever home sanctuary for parrots for over 14 years . Because Kim is a recognized leader and authority in the parrot sanctuary community, more and more people have stepped up the help make the dream of a state-of-the-art sanctuary come true in 2018. Led by Kim, our commitment to the health and well being of our residents is incredibly gratifying.

Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee is one of those rare non profits that we need so many more of. Kim and her crew love and care immensely about each and every bird that EAST helps. EAST does so much to provide Parrots a safe haven for as long as the Parrot needs to stay and some never leave. One weekend not long ago I had an emergency with my Umbrella Cockatoo and my Avian Vet was closed, emergency Vet’s would take my bird, I live in Western Ky and I called Kim who is in Tennessee, leaving a voice message, she called me back immediately and gave me great advice as to where to take my U2 during a weekend emergency. Kim was the reassurance and comfort that I needed in my crisis. Last year I was inspired to do everything that I could to make a difference in other birds lives and to educate owners for the welfare of bird.
Thank you EAST!

This is a rescue that does it right! Every bird is vetted and on a healthy diet. Birds are in aviaries and provided enrichment along with a flock.
I have been a part of this from inception and it only continues to get better.

I was a part of the inception of EAST and am proud of what it has become. It is truly one that is done right from start to finish! Honesty, care, love, enrichment, healthy diet, and proper vet care are all things EAST strives for and takes precedence. Kim has exhausted herself building her dream and to make sure no bird will ever go without.

I have been volunteering at EAST since September and I’m totally in heaven when there. Kim & the gang have truly created something rather magical there. It’s the bird’s world & we simply share their space. I’ve so loved learning the different personalities. In November a Moluccan cockatoo was surrendered who I quickly fell in love with and have been sponsoring since Christmas. Best Christmas gift ever. He’s rather possessive of me now. Lol. Sammy flew down the hall for the first time a month ago and we cheered. It’s truly was like watching a baby take it’s first steps. I’m no sure there is anyone that doesn’t love Britches. I quite adore Gypsy. It doesn’t matter what’s on your mind or how bad you feel stepping in that door changes your mood. Step into the littles aviary and peace sets in. There is simply nothing like EAST and I’m proud to be a part of it.

I'v been following Kim for quite a few years, from her Nashville 9 to her full-fledged rescue. I have watched her sucesses and heartbreaks as she takes everyone of those beatiful creatures into her heart. I've never met her but I can feel her inspiration and dedication. I have on occasion reached out for advice and she to me when I lost my beautiful Demelza. I feel she is the modern day St. Frances as she respects all creatures.

Avian Sanctuary kept our cockatiels for us to go to Hawaii. We have seen how much Kim loves the birds and how well they are taken care of. They constantly are improving where and how the birds are kept. It is an awesome place.

I have been involved with this amazing parrot rescue and sanctuary for three years now. After years of research, EAST is the place my husband and I have chosen for our sweet blue & gold macaw to land once we've gone. We are clients, volunteers, donors and proud supporters. Kim Hannah, founder and Executive Director, is kind, smart, ethical and honest. She is connected with, and shares information with the best rescues in the country. She supports conservation. And when it comes to parrots who need a home and care, she is absolutely selfless. We are excited to be a part of EAST's future, and to help it grow.

My husband and I are thrilled with every aspect of this young parrot rescue and lifetime care organization–from the obvious love and caring of these parrots who need a home, to the honesty, transparency, and ethics of the founder Kim Hannah and her staff and I am proud to serve as a Board member and volunteer at EAST. We are happy beyond words to have found this great sanctuary so near our home, that we can help through donations and volunteering, and that will someday provide a forever home for our sweet girl Crackers.

I give EAST a 5 out of 5 star review! My Husband and I were lucky enough to help out with some of the construction and I can say that everything is first class. Kim Hannah is a beautiful human being and puts her heart and soul into the place and gives the very best care and nutrition to her flock. We are so blessed to have a place like EAST here in the Nashville area. It's a Godsend to so many Parrots who otherwise may have crossed Rainbow Bridge without her love and care.

I started volunteering at EAST back in January and fell in love with the birds. This organization is doing everything they can to give these birds a safe, fun, and stimulating environment which is so important to their development. I go twice a month and help clean up the stalls, hang bird toys, and I spend lots of time with the birds themselves, playing with and holding them. I adore being here and although I have never been apart of an adopting process or a meet and greet with the birds in schools, I recognize and appreciate it's importance in the exotic pet environment. Many people don't know the amount of commitment it takes to raise birds. There are efforts made through this organization to help people see they are more than just their imitations and their cuddles. I LOVE that they are considered a rescue, sanctuary, and boarding. With the set up of the facility it works incredibly well. The ability to be all three makes people realize these birds can live to be older than the average human, needing a sanctuary to call home. Birds are an incredible amount of work, need for the rescue. And boarding can't just be anyone, exotic bird knowledge should be expected from anyone planning to have or even take care of these birds. Overall it's a wonderful environment, if anyone has ever been curious about adopting a bird volunteering a while is a great way to learn and experience first hand what you are getting yourself into.

My name is Ashley and I've been volunteering at EAST (Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee) going on two years.

I have always loved animals. I came across EAST when I was looking for volunteering opportunities. I've always had a passion for birds (I was helping a friend do retirement home visits with her cockatoo) and this was right up my alley. I contact Kim and I've been volunteering ever since. EAST holds a special place in my life. Dealing with depression and anxiety, Kim has provided a place where not only parrots are taken care of but a place that you feel like you are making a difference. I have become very attached to the birds that we have under our care and it is bitter-sweet to see them go but seeing them thrive in an environment that suits them...words cannot describe. Kim has dedicated her life to provide a place for these special creatures and I'm so glad to be a part of it.

Kim at EAST was incredibly helpful and thoughtful in finding us the perfect parrot to join our family.

As they were just getting started, several years ago, the EAST team visited a rescue in Atlanta where I was volunteering. I finally had the pleasure of visiting their location this year. I was impressed. The toys and space available to the birds were much more than adequate. And the care they receive was excellent from everything I saw. Keep up the good work!

I wanted an exotic bird, but I am a huge supporter of adoption. I found East, got in touch with Kim and now I have my sweet Rio, an Indian Ringneck. I was her fourth home in 10 months. She was 10 months old when I adopted her and we had some issues at first due to her changing homes so often. She couldn't trust. To see her then as to now you would think she was a different bird.
She loves me and trusts me as I do her and that bond is something so special that words can not attempt to explain it. She has made such an impact on my life and I love her so much. They really are amazing creatures. Kim is amazing and is always there for me when I have any questions or concerns. Her love and respect for these birds is truly heart warming. Thank you so much Kim for trusting me with this amazing creature. She will always be loved and given the best life possible. I am so glad places like EAST exist to give a sanctuary for these amazing creatures. I love EAST and their goals. Don't shop, adopt!!

In 2017, my heart and love, my Sweetie Pie, my African grey of nearly 15 years passed away suddenly of old age. A friend told me she would help me find another rescue when I was ready to adopt. She showed me a photo of Smokey with a messed up beak, needing a forever home. I wasn't certain that my heart was healed enough, as Sweetie had just passed away. I prayed and studied it. I searched online and spoke with several rescues. It all came back to Smokey at EAST. Yet EAST was too far from me and may not consider my application for this reason, as I was located just on the edge of the adoption range. It turned out that I was on the inside edge when the research was done and my family was blessed with Smokey. Smokey was chosen because of his special needs. Most people look for a "perfect parrot." Anyone owning a parrot knows there is no such animal~they are all psycho! -Especially at mealtime. Certain color foods are poisonous on various days! A special needs Cockatiel blesses our home already, and another would add more blessings. Smokey has a unique personality and came around flavorful. His food/pellets must be moistened at each feeding and he cannot have shelled nuts, yet he doesn't eat many nuts. Other than that, his life is that of a colorful, sprite parrot. Lucas, the 'tiel, adores him and he is learning to fly and land properly. Thanks to EAST for rescuing from the years of neglect that caused his beak injury and it is a thousand wonders he did not starve to death before his rescue. The photos at his rescue and his now photos show a phenomenal transformation of a happy and healthy bird that knows love. Boy, does this grey boy know love! Thank you, Kim Hannah for trusting us with this bundle of sass! He is such a star for the company that made his flight suit, I had to set up his InstaGram account! Giggle. His fans demanded it! They love his story and His suit is a tribute to Rhea-the Naked Birdie who was also a special needs birdie from disease. the suit says "love what is different" ~ we ALL can attest to that!

I happened to be in the area for work and Kim kindly arranged for me to be able to visit. It was spur of the moment and the place was spotless, happy, and welcoming. I couldn't believe how calm all the birds were and the cleanliness of the aviaries was astounding. I wholeheartedly recommend EAST for adoptions, and general parrot care questions. Any bird would be lucky to have Kim on their side.

My husband and I wanted to learn more about parrots, so we began to volunteer at EAST once a week. What first struck us is the intense sense of caring that Kim has for each of the birds in her care. The mutual love between the birds and Kim is amazing. Even the most timid birds trust her.

Since we have been volunteering there, we have adopted two birds. Rebel, a 20 year old African grey, and PB, a 10 year old conure. Thanks to Kim, we now have these two amazing birds in our family and will always treasure them. Kim makes a difference for numerous birds and their human families.

I met Kim Hannah & Kathy Floyd years ago on Fb, when they were just helping birds out of Kims home. I watched them build the outdoor aviary, and rescue more birds. I donated to special cases, so they could continue to help. I cheered when she became a full fledged rescue. I watched Kims dream of buying land, and building a building and expand their mission of helping pet birds in need in middle Tennessee. Kims selfless dedication and drive is remarkable, and I am proud to know her. EAST is one of the charities that I donate to monthly, I believe in their mission and goals. There is no drama, no fussing of volunteers or board directors, just passionate people helping birds in need. They are the BEST!

When Joann and I first visited EAST last year, Kim was just starting to frame out the interior of the new facility. Since then the main facility has been completed and all the birds moved into their new free flight rooms. The continued expansion plans are going as Kim stated when we first visited with her, with the impressive outdoor aviaries well on their way to be completed.

My wife and I ran a small avian rescue for almost 20 years. When we moved us all to Nashville, we were only 1 of 2 registered with Davidson County. (Angel's Wing and a Prayer Parrot Rescue) I was so happy to see EAST be born! EAST has become so much more than we ever tried to do, and those services are so needed here! We have aged out of this business (calling). EAST will take care of any remaining parrots we have when we get too old to care for them ourselves. Thank You, Kim. Love y'all.

We found the bird rescue while my daughter was trying to find something she could do for birds in our community for her Girl Scout Silver Award. We were so happy we did. We have learned so much bout the needs & have become aware of how many birds need a new home or need a sanctuary to live their lives out.

Kim and EAST are fantastic. They really do care about the birds they take in. I contacted her looking for a timneh African grey parrot and she said they hardly ever ended up at her sanctuary. Three days later I received a message from Kim saying "you're not gonna believe this..."

I visited the new facility in its construction phase and was amazed at what they were doing. The property itself is beautiful and peaceful... Exactly what you would expect of a sanctuary!

I've had my little girl Sasha for a year now and she makes me very happy! After the adoption, Kim always was happy to help if I had any questions or issues about my birds.

They are truly an amazing organization that works tirelessly to assist birds in need.

Kim Hannah and Kathy Floyd are 2 of the most selfless, caring people I know. EAST and these two beautiful souls who run the sanctuary / rescue define what rescue is all about. My husband and I have adopted 2 parrots from them, and would never consider dealing with any other rescue. We were slightly outside their normal home visit range, but after talking with them, they didn't hesitate to make the drive. I am so happy for them and the parrots in their care with the new sanctuary being built. Not only did we gain two new flock members, we gained 2 amazing friends for life.

They had just recently taken in two very large macaws and watching Kim with them and seeing how much they trusted her right from the start was fantastic.

I volunteer here every week. This place holds a special place in my heart. As do all the birds and Kim. I’m so grateful for everything Kim does for the birds at Exotic Avian Sanctuary. When I moved to the area, 3 years ago, and was looking for a pet sitter for my birds and other pets, I just happened by chance to see Kim’s vehicle in the local Kroger parking lot. And the advertisement on the side of her vehicle about petsitting. The rest is history! She invited me to come see her Sanctuary and I knew I wanted to volunteer once I met all these amazing birds in her care! It’s been a blessing in my life since day one! Many thanks Kim Hannah! For introducing me to all these wonderful birds and letting me help out. I’ve learned “so much” just being there and about parrots and the need for these majestic creatures to have a place to go, when they can no longer stay, where they were, for various reasons. I’m thankful they have a place to go. Thank you Kim, for your undying love and devotion to these birds!! ❤️

A little while after I first moved to Nashville, I found myself needing an avian influence in my life. I have always been fascinated by the quirks and habits of parrots. To me they are breathtaking animals; physical manifestations of eccentricity and each an individual behavioral jigsaw.
I did what we millenials do and started searching Google for a place that might potentially accept me as a volunteer. I was surprised at how few sanctuaries for parrots exist; even in a city as large as Nashville, there is only E.A.S.T.
As I eagerly waited for Kim Hannah to reply to my email, I poured over the sanctuary's Facebook page and was amazed by what I saw. The recovery stories alone made the decision for me. I knew this was the place where I wanted to be. However, I could have never prepared myself for actually walking through the door for the first time. Kim invited me up and I was rendered pretty speechless by them all; by their number, their voices, their intellect, their beauty, and their history. As she gave me the tour, I saw my own curiosity reflected back through every single pinning pupil. And I loved it.
Today I've been a volunteer at E.A.S.T. for almost a year. I've never met a human with a bigger heart than Kim Hannah, whose dedication, devotion, and love for these animals has no boundary. Everything she does is for them and she is my hero.

I had my first lovebird named "jasper" for 13 years. In 2013, I lost him. I couldn't bare to live without parrot. My husband and I saw what seemed to be lonely young green cheek conure at the local pet store. We did what we thought was right and we brought her home and named her FeeBee. After a few months, we wanted to get her a friend. i did a "google" search on local parrot adopts/sanctuaries. This led us to E.A.S.T. A few short weeks later we met with Kim Hannah and Kathy Floyd. These two women are the most selfless and devoted women that we know. Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee would not be the same without them. This is and 24 hour 7 days a week, rain or shine devotion. These scared, neglected, often abused parrots flourish under E.A.S.T. We are honored to know Kim and Kathy. My husband and I have adopted 12 parrots, over the past few years, from E.A.S.T. Our lives would not be the same without them. It would be empty. Thank you E.A.S.T!

I recently had to rehome my parrots, after having them for 19 years. It was (and still is) a heart-breaking experience. Kim was wonderful to work with and found a fantastic home for one of my birds, and my other bird is currently in her care as she seeks a home for him. She is doing essential work for these beautiful birds and their owners.

I found EAST after doing a google search for bird rescues in my area. I reached out about becoming a foster and filled out an application. After a thorough process to ensure I was a good candidate, I was able to come meet the birds and find someone who would fit in with my household. After a couple visits, an adorable Senegal came home with me. Long story short, I am now her forever home. EAST is an amazing rescue that ensures the birds are the top priority.
