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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Lily Sanctuary truly cares for these birds. All sizes and temperments, they find them all to be precious. Each is loved and cared for (I was afraid of some of them-- the big ones especially) but they loved and handled them all carefully and respectfully. They know each bird's temperment and cater to it. One of the big Cockatoos does not want to be picked up so he follows a towel out to his outdoor cage each afternoon for "sunning and fresh air". They work hard all day long each and every day.

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

The love and respect shown to each of these precious creatures

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

Caring and dedicated

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

multiply the difference it is making.

Ways to make it better...

I wasn't such a "chicken". But I am a newbie with birds and didn't "get it" then.

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

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
