Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal Services, Animals, Bird Sanctuaries

Mission: The Oasis Sanctuary is a Rescue and Retirement facility for exotic birds, predominantly CITES I and II endangered birds. We offer birds a stable and loving home for the duration of their natural lives. We do not sell or breed birds. We do not offer birds for adoption. Many of The Oasis birds come from other rehabilitation and/or adoption programs where qualified personnel determined it was not in the bird's best interets to be placed in private homes. Some of our birds have "special needs", are physically handicapped or challenged requiring unique living or feeding situations. Several have been bounced from home to home, often being physically and/or emotionally abused and have simply become too fearful of people to be companions to people any longer. A number of The Oasis birds are "retired" breeders, or other birds originally imported for production purposes, which, due to age, infirmity or temperament often would be facing euthanasia. Because many of our birds are not interested in or are incapable of human interaction, they are housed with the same or similar, compatible species in non-breeding pairs or small flocks in large outdoor flights.

Programs: Provide permanent sanctuary, placement, and care to companion birds for whom no other options exist. We currently care for 800 parrots.

So many people forget about the birds. Being an avid animal / bird lover, this organization has exceeded all expectations of a charity. Once homed, a bird is never passed onto someone else. They care for these birds in every manner possible to give them a decent life, and at great cost to themselves - both financially and in their long hours and dedication.

The Oasis is an amazing organization that rescues birds, predominately parrots, (and occasionally welcoming some 4 legged friends as well). Many do not understand the complexities nor the tremendous costs that go along with proper care for these amazing and magnificent creatures. Nor do they realize that many of these birds can live for 75-80 years or more. The Oasis houses over 700 birds, some of whom have severe disabilities, others who have been diagnosed with terminal diseases. One can only imagine the amount of work that goes on there on a daily basis, again, not to mention the costs involved with the upkeep. They are in constant need of building equipment for the construction or repair of the aviaries, cleaning equipment, food and refrigeration equipment for storage, and other supplies necessary to maintain the cages and aviaries. The Oasis staff are some of the most compassionate caregivers you would ever care to meet, many of whom actually live at the Sanctuary. These folks don't just enjoy what they do, they are truly passionate about it! Please, lets help them to continue with the amazing work they do there, and give these beautiful birds the care they are so deserving of.

The Oasis Sanctuary is a wonderful place caring for over 700 beautiful birds of every kind - parrots, macaws, parakeets, cockatoos and so many more. When parrots and birds need help, the Oasis is there no matter how far they have to travel to help these precious birds. The staff is wonderful. They take care of each and every member of their flock without question - day and night. Every chance I get I donate much needed items such as towels and newspapers and cash donations when I am able. The Oasis Sanctuary deserves all the help they can get. When a parrot or budgie or other feathery baby is in need of help, The Oasis Sanctuary is there. And I will be there to help them any way I can.

We started supporting this organization after seeing Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. We go to the Open House days whenever we can, and sponsor two parrots. The staff and volunteers are totally dedicated to the well-being of the birds and other critters in their care.

Oasis has kept focus on it's mission through many difficult years when others not for profits did not survive. Parrots are truly victims of their beauty and incredible intelligence. Most bird rescues are overflowing with unwanted or abused birds. Oasis is one of the few that makes and keeps the promise of caring for the birds for the rest of their lives. They do not adopt them out to start another life of being passed around. They let them be birds in the best settings possible. In speaking to the staff and volunteers you know they do it all for the birds. We need more places like Oasis that are making a difference to so many.

Several years ago we lost our dear parakeet Joey. Searching for a way to remember him, we searched the Internet for a charitable organization to which we could make a donation in his memory. We quickly found the Oasis Sanctuary, and after a few discussions (via e-mail) with the then-director, Sybil, made a contribution. We continued to make contributions to the Oasis over the intervening years, and even introduced our granddaughters to the Oasis. They, with our help, sponsored two birds, and loved hearing about their antics. It also taught them about 'giving.' Frankly, regardless of what type of pet you have, the Oasis is an organization worthy of your support. For us, our relationship is more than that of donor-charity...we feel we are part of their family.

I currently own 5 parrots. I can't remember how I first found out about Oasis but I have been donating for a few years. Their newsletter always contains heartwarming rescue stories and you can feel the dedication and passion in the staff's columns. I hope to one day visit the rescue and volunteer for a week. The videos I have seen show how wonderful the place is and I am glad to know there is a place that will take my parrots, should my death precede theirs.

The Oasis Sanctuary provides lifetime care for 700 plus parrots that are have lost their owners, been abused, and lost their homes because of this weakened economy. The staff at the Oasis Sanctuary work 365 days a year in the rain, heat, cold and elements. It's their passion and determination that has made them a bright spot in the world of avian rescue. They work around the nation to promote well being, education, and a soft place to land for parrots that have run out of options. If your a parrot, have run out of options, and are in need of compassion and understanding, the Oasis is the place to land, even if your wings no longer work.
