I have volunteered here for two years now. I have never seen someone who is more passionate about the birds and wild life. Jody has devoted her life to rehabilitation of these magnificent creatures. She educates the public and our youth. We will have a whole New generation of parrot guardians and young people who have a love of raptors thanks to Jodi. I am honored to be a part of Fallenfeathers . There no finer group of volunteers everyone has the same goals to preserve and protect. If you've never seen pain in a birds eyes from abandonment or neglect then watched as they slowly come back to life because they are trusting you and opening their heart again you are missing out on a beautiful experience. I urge you come visit us you will never want to leave.
I am not a volunteer. I am a next door neighbor. I've been over many time to Fallen Feathers and even did some photography for them from time to time. I've been interested in their work, and in contact with them since they moved in...and that's been a while! I've never seen anything that would make me question what they do, or how they do it. I've been privileged to have been able to photograph releases, and watch them care for birds for years. I can't say enough about how great their work has been, and what an educational and enjoyable experience living next door has been--and continues to be.
I have been with fallen feathers for 5 years and this place has changed my life. for this being a non profit organization jody goes out of her way to save animals in any way possible, their are points in the year that more volunteers would be a huge help. However i don't think i would have gotten over my depression if i hadn't gone here in the beginning i would go for 8 hr or longer shifts and i absolutely loved spending my time working hard for these animals however college has stated and i barley get to go anymore but i wish i could go back this place has helped me grow and strive to bigger and better things i am getting A's in my courses from what all jody taught me and I'm going to school to be just like her. Honestly all the volunteers here are my family and they are the greatest people i have ever met. I think for a non profit organization Jody does a pretty amazing life changing job here. I love this woman to death. I have brought many friends and they have all stuck around to help in anyway they can and fall in love with the birds, jody , and the education here as well. I have even adopted a cockatoo from jody and her adoption policy is the best because i have had her for 4 years and i can't even tell you how great of a bird she is. I also do shows with jody and teach many people about our owls and hawks, and it just bring me so much joy to interest someone let alone it helped me get rid of my fear of talking to others. Jody is the biggest inspiration and i know she will always be there like a 2nd mother to me.Come HELP OUT we would greatly appreciate it.
The best rescue and educational facility I have ever seen. I have personally adopted two parrots from Fallen Feathers. I have personally assisted and assessed the condition of the "rescues" and found every bird to have fresh food two bowls of fresh water toys and ample living spaces. I also like the fact that if the bird does not pick you you can not adopt it, no matter what you do or how much you donate, Fallen Feathers is about the birds needs before the people's wants, I have learned more from Fallen Feathers in the two years I have worked with them than the 30 years of owning parrots prior to visiting there. The whole family is knowledgeable and accommodating. You are welcomed into the facility which is homey and clean, also you are encouraged to interact with the parrots and are given a great deal of information, even if you only come to clean cages you will learn so much.
Volunteering has been a wonderful experience for me and my entire family. My child has developed excellent interaction skills by attending events and working alongside other volunteers. My family has been volunteering for the past three years. Anyone looking to make a difference should consider seeing Fallen Feathers for themselves. A lot of good work is done here and it is very rewarding to attend releases.
I volunteered there for over four years. At first, things seemed fine. But as time went by and I discovered more and more failings, I realized this was no place for birds. One day, towards the end of my time there, I arrived to find the parrots without food, and water growing in water dish of a cockatoo. The director and assistant director were in another building on the computer. It seemed no one had taken care of the birds in days. On another occasion, one parrot was "forgotten" (the director's word) in a carrier in a closed room. Parrots that needed vet care were not getting it. The education raven died, and another raven was taken from a clutch, domesticated, and put in its place, instead of being released back into the wild. I would never take any bird, wild or domestic, to this group.
