I have a gift shop that I like to use to help parrot rescues. But with the recent publicity regarding rescues that may not be good for the birds or completely aboveboard, I felt I had to pick several quality ones to investigate and be sure they met my expectations for what I'd like to see in a rescue. Not only did Florida Parrot Rescue meet those expectations but exceeded them. I am pleased and honored to endorse them and help them raise funds for their operation. They are managed well, their standards are sound, and their fostering system helps ensure that facilities never get overcrowded. Their management truly operates with a love of parrots and goes the extra mile to ensure that potential adopters are ready for life with a parrot. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in the area looking for a parrot to adopt or someone looking for a good, worthy place to put their money.
I have worked with the FPR for about 6 months and have been continually impressed with their commitment to the birds that they care for. Whether donating precious financial or time resources to the medical care of maltreated birds or re-evaluating standard operating procedures to maximize care of the birds it is obvious that this group really does exist to serve the unwanted and mistreated birds of Florida. I am very proud to be associated with them.
I have been involved with the Avian world in a number of different capacities. I was fortunate enough to meet many of the members of this organization. I was extremely impressed by their dedication, compassion, professionalism, ethics and standards. Everything they do supports the well-being of the Parrots they are seeking to re-home. This group sets the bar high, and is a model that should be followed and studied by many in this field!
I own a retail bird shop and adoption center and have had the privilege of working with FPR as a foster and volunteer. This is a totally volunteer operated organization with the the highest of standards in rescue. From the officers down to the fosters & volunteers, every single person is dedicated to doing the right thing. They are honest, ethical & responsible, often putting their own lives and families after their responsibilities to this fine organization.
