I first applied to adopt a bird during the early days of Covid-19 and Joanne and her team went out of their way to call my references a day after I applied! and once we were approved, my daughter kept asking when we are getting a bird, but they wanted to find the perfect bird for our family and worked really hard to help get us one that fits all our needs. In August, we finally picked up our Scooter and he is everything we wanted. friendly to the kids and hand tamed. We picked him up from Joanne, who sent us off with cage, extra toys, food and treats for him. Joanne was more than okay to keep him for us for a little longer as we wanted to get him after our family vacation. What a wonderful agency!
We had to rehome a rescue Mickey a yellow nape amazon we had take to get him out of bad situations. He wasn't doing well in a room with other birds. Joanne found him a home and we were so happy because Mickey had a playmate ! I can't say enough good things about this group. I have my eyes out for a rescue that likes being around other birds and I'm sure we'll find them. Thank you for all your help!
I have adopted three birds from For the Love of Birds. They are a wonderful non profit, 100% volunteer run organization that relies donations and volunteers to do what they do. They ensure that each bird that comes into their rescue finds the best possibly forever home and i could not be more thankful for my birds!
I am currently working with For The Love Of Birds as a potential adopter. So far, absolutely nothing but wonderful things to say about them! Coming from someone who is not a first time bird adopter, I can verify that they absolutely do their homework and carefully choose who they place their birds with. I have had multiple conversations with them, they seem very friendly and easy to talk with. The bird they are hoping to place with me seems to be a VERY good fit thus far in the adoption process. The bottom line though....they care very much about their birds and who they place them with.
These guys really are so great at what they do. I was originally interested in a pair of cockatiels but alas they were already being adopted. Joanne took the time to find me the perfect match and was so incredibly transparent and honest about every little detail. I went to meet my Pixie (she’s a 5 yr old parrotlet) and her foster mom, Corrine, who was nothing short of amazing. She had taken such great care of her while they were finding her forever home. Pixie is my little girlfriend now and I can’t thank them enough for all they have done. It takes special people to do what they do everyday and they certainly live up to every expectation of that.
My 23 year old cockatiel, Stormy, passed away, so I decided to adopt 2 Cockatiels in his memory. I submitted an application to For the Love of Birds and was able to adopt 2 while face bonded males. The adoption process was very thorough which I thought was so great. Thanks to Joanne & her team!!! They are an A+++ organization!!!! Photo of Benny & Bobby attached!!!
I've adopted twice from For the Love of Birds and received not only the gift of wonderful creatures to nurture but countless forms of support and advice. In addition to rescuing countless feathered creatures, FTLOB members tirelessly vet new bird parents, perhaps one of the most important tasks of rehoming. I'd give this group 10 stars if I could.
I adopted my Nanday Conure from FTLOB in November 2017. I can’t say enough positive things about this organization. Very open with communication, foster dad was very easy to work with, they provide the cage and food for your adopted bird for a smooth transition. Definitely consider FTLOB when you’re looking for a rescue bird! Adopt don’t shop!
I have been working with some of these men and women for many years , and others only a short time, but we all work well together and love what we do .
Although life is busy for us all, we somehow find the time it takes to help all these birds that need and depend on our help .
Tough at times, stressful, and sometimes sad, but the joy of finding just the right home for the birds in our care out ways all the rest :)
Joanne and Caryn and all the foster bird parents are angels for what they do. We met Joanne at the first Adoptathon at the Horse Park in 2016, and submitted our application for the next lovebird who needed a forever home. Janey became available, and we got to meet Caryn who was fostering her. After a few months of settling in with Janey, we thought Janey would like company. When another lovebird became available, we let For the Love of Birds know we had room for another lovebird in our home. Indie is young and energetic and very entertaining. Janey loves her swing, and they both enjoy eating and shredding the organic kale we give them. Our birds came with lots of detailed care instructions. If we have any questions we know we can reach out and get help. it was pretty cool when we went to Platinum Parrot (Manahawkin-nearest food supply to home) and they knew For the Love of Birds . It has been a wonderful experience adopting and sharing this rescue with others.
