I recently visited this beautiful sanctuary and was so impressed with its beauty and with the knowledge and care of the birds.
The facility was immaculately maintained and the birds seemed very happy there!
If I ever have a bird I couldn't take care of, I would certainly leave it in their care, with a peaceful mine and heart.
I visited this business and was totally amazed with the compassion and energy the staff have toward the parrots they care for. This is a very organized and dedicated group of people, with a sole mission to rescue parrots and educate the public about the awesome responsibility to care for these birds. Go see them and get educated!
This place is unbelievable! An amazing amount of various birds. The employees and volunteers were so helpful and knowledgeable. The birds are given exceptional care and the cages are full of toys and very clean. My favorite bird was "Precious ". She dances and says, "Go precious, go Precious! I'll be back!
My current plans are to rehome my two macaws with FEBS in April. For anyone with negative reviews, PLEASE email me privately with your concerns firstname.lastname@example.org. I love my two babies more than I can say. I'm VERY particular about what they eat and how they live. I did not see anything that alarmed at FEBS. But if anyone wants to share information with me that you have PROOF of, please contact me at the email address above.
I met Patricia and the birds at FEBS a couple of weeks ago. I must say how impressed I am with the sanctuary and Patricia's vision for FEBS. I plan to relocate my babies to FEBS in the near future knowing I'm doing the best thing for them. I want them to be birds, to live with other birds, and to be able to fly. I have found the place where I can give them that gift.
Beware of this place...I love to go off of reviews for my decisions I have to make, but this is one instance where you need to dig deeper. Yea the couple of flight aviaries they have are nice, but besides that there is tons of money going into this place and all I saw was nasty old small cages, a weird environment, and a cheap seed diet for the birds. There are also some terrible things going on behind the scenes (selling the birds, breeding the birds, etc.) Trust me, there are much better sanctuaries out there for your bird.
Unfortunately, this review was written by a person that left as a volunteer years ago and tried to start his own Sanctuary. He constactly tries to place these awful posts in social media, You are welcome to come see for yourself that it is nothing like what this disgruntled mean person is saying about our facility. Please be open minded and look at the other 185 great reviews from the wonderful people that LOVE who we are and what we do. We believe in complete transparency.
I have a very spoiled cockatoo named Miko. My biggest worry in this world is what would happen to her if something happened to me. I thought of giving her to a rescue to find her a home, but I have talked to so many people that have or know someone that has a cockatoo and they just leave them in the cage as a "trophy." Cockatoos are very "needy" and attention seeking birds and if Miko ended up in a home like that, she would die a slow, lonely death. So I started looking at different places. I finally saw FEBS and went and toured the sanctuary. The birds all had plenty of food and water and toys. there were volunteers in one of the aviaries hand feeding fruit to the birds. They looked happy and healthy. Miko came with me and was nervous. She pooped on me which she never does. Very quickly while touring though, she got very comfortable saying "hello" to the birds. I was told they are looking to expand. Until that time, they could use donations or supplies to help build other aviaries so they can take in more birds that can no longer live with their owners. I am offering my time to help the facility. I hope I can give my little girl a lot more years, but if the time came that I couldn't or if I pass on, I now feel comfortable where she can go. If you are reading this, please help this organization and these birds any way you can. thank you for reading this.. God Bless, Linda
Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is a fantastic place for the birds and is run by a caring, dedicated staff. It is great to see the birds interacting and playing in conditions that are not possible in most homes. It is fun to visit, they are amazingly intelligent.
I never knew how intelligent these birds are, I had only seen them in cages where they maybe knew a few words. In the flight aviary however they were amazing, they all have their own personality and it was obvious how attached they are to the caretakers. It was an eye-opening experience and well worth the trip. The birds love mixed nuts and it is easy to send them a bag right from the FEBS web site.
Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is very dedicated to the preservation of all exotic birds. "birds can be birds" in the flight aviaries. Please help them meet thier goals to accomplish this. I can highly recommend this sanctuary. Keep up the good work.
Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is an excellent example of what a sanctuary should be. Where "Birds can be Birds". I have looked at many rescues and sanctuaries for my birds, in the event of my passing; Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is the right place for the security and safety concerns that I may have about my birds remaining in a forever home. Birds are well-fed, free flighted and well taken care of with personal attention give to them. It is well organized with caring, responsible, honest people in charge of caring for the birds and highly motivated in raising funds for the security of their birds needs.
This is an awesome place for all feathered friends. Its been a year now my cockatoo, LAURA has been placed with FEBS and we are both happy. I am able to visit her whenever I can. I am very impress with the job Pattricia is doing. The birds are well-cared for, and there are always volunteers helping with feed, and cleaning of the cages. I wouldn't want my loving cockatoo to be anywhere else. If you are looking to donate, time, food, and chew toys, I recommened directing it here.
I have watched this Sanctuary go from 6 Parrots to over 300 and the way that they are doing this is amazing. Great place, great for the Birds. With over 2.3 million birds in private homes, it is so necessary for a place in Florida, where birds are breed at alarming numbers, to have a rescue/Sanctuary for them.I hope they get lots of support!
