Review for Lily Sanctuary Parrot Rescue, Fountain Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been so moved, educated and inspired by the Lily Sanctuary. Never have I seen so much dedication on a daily basis to take personal care of these animals that were in need. In volunteering I learned about the behaviors, health and species-specific traits of parrots. And as for how I was inspired... how much can I write? I no longer live near the Lily Sanctuary and I now assist with a rescue and adoption organization for birds locally. We maintain health and adoption standards that are similar to the Sanctuary's. I have connected with others who are interested in the welfare of abused and neglected parrots and have been an available resource for members of the community. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of Dan and Venette at the Lily Sanctuary and what they have given me. Their uncorrupted love for these birds is boundless, which has given me a new perspective on life. I would also like to point out that the Lily Sanctuary fosters friendship, teamwork and an sense of worth among the team that volunteers there. Not all people are bird people, and not all birds are people birds. Working together every day, week or month the Sanctuary brings out the best in every single person that walks through the front door.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...the successful adoption of abandoned parrots to safe, qualified homes. I have also experienced results in actually seeing "problematic" birds become loving companions, all through the understanding and care that the Lily Sanctuary provides.
