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

Rating: 5 stars  

For 4 years I've been volunteering as caring for, fostering, working with parrot's behaviors, helping re home parrots to the right loving families, working with amazing people, educating and keeping people up to date on the latest care and info, and have come away with FAR more than I could have ever imagined

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

happy placements, helping sad owners who need to rehome their birds for SO many reasons, some which are out of their control find loving families,helping in medical emergencies,with hoarders, abandoned parrots, and teaching parrots to hope and trust again

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get tons more financial support to help them with the ENDLESS flow of parrots needing help. A bigger facility, more voluteers, to educate people parrots are NOT dogs/cats, but exotic prey animals who can't be trained to be, or treated like their dogs/cat

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The medical and behavioral healings of parrots seriously "too far gone" to help. The security they "tell" us they feel under our care. The friends I have been able to make that I will keep for the rest of my life...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Some of the best people I have ever known

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Grow/ move into another home environment that would be filled with volunteers, avian vet & students, be able to give ed classes on site all the time, educate on the fact there are too many parrots/not enough good educated homes plight that is real

Ways to make it better...

I had more $ to help them grow to meet the needs of parrots

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Not enough room, volunteers, finances, volunteers, room, finances......

One thing I'd also say is that...

Get educated BEFORE you buy/adopt a parrot, it is not what you expect,and love them for what they are, not what you want to make them be. Know they will possibly outlive you and you need to provide for them like a family member if/when this happens

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Volunteer & I help with adoptions, education, events, messages, you name it.
