Review for Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary Inc, Hudson, FL, USA
I am owned by 16-17 year young African Grey parrot named Ashye. As my husband and I are not spring chickens anymore, we have been looking to prepare for her future, when we will no longer be here to care for her. As most people know, parrots require lots of attention, good, fresh foods and are a lifetime commitment.
We discovered FEBS after lots of research and knew we needed to go the next step. We contacted Patricia and scheduled a day to visit the sanctuary in person.
When we arrived we were greeted by a cacophany of whistles, hellos and other common noises made by parrots when someone new enters their home. We were delighted to see that newcomers were quarantined to ensure the other members would not become ill and to allow the new guests a chance to view their new forever homes from a small distance. We had planned on being gone about an hour but were surpeised when we realized we had been there for 3! We toured the entire facility and spoke extensively with Patricia about the sanctuary and her plans and goals for the residents.
After much consideration we have added a Pet Trust to our wills and included a codicil that will have Patricia meeting Ashye to take her to her new home when the time arises.
Between now and then we contribute when we can to the Sanctuary and have even helped raise new aviaries at the new site.
i would highly recommend this organization as a valuable place for your feathered friends to live out their lives as "birds" and to visit and volunteer whenever you can.
I know Ashye will be well cared for, well fed and loved after we are gone.
