Review for Feathered Sanctuary Exotic Bird Rescue, Willow Street, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter is an emotionally & mentally challenged teenager. She has great anxiety whenever she leaves the house. 1 of the rare times that she will try to venture out is for trips to places that has animals because animals is 1 of the few things that makes her happy. We discovered the rescue last year & have visited it multiple times since. The staff/volunteers there are just as wonderful & accepting with her as they are with all the birds that come under their roof. Unknowingly, I feel they have helped my daughter make progress with several of her issues during her visits because of who they are by making her feel safe & welcomed whenever she comes; allowing us to help with the birds when she is able & fielding the numerous questions that she fires at them constantly which is allowing her to learn in a way that she doesn't resent & resist are just a few examples. They allow us to spend long hours there as we try to learn & determine whether or not we can adopt a bird into our household. I highly recommend the rescue to everybody that has an interest in birds from the just curious to the advance bird caretaker to come check them out. I betting once you do, you be coming back. Warning to those that are thinking about adopting, they only allowing adoption if they know that the birds will be well taken care & your home will become the birds forever home. They also have a great little shop within the rescue for your bird supplies that will also help with the birds staying there. They frequently have activities there or elsewhere in the Lancaster County that you could also check out. Once you visit & fall in love with the rescue consider helping them out by becoming an volunteer or making a donation. Both are always needed & welcomed.
