Review for The Parrot Posse, Wadmalaw Is, SC, USA
The Parrot Posse does amazing work to help birds in need. It is not a rescue, but instead supports rescue organizations as well as local authorities by providing needed food, toys, and cages when needed. When hurricanes have left parrots with no safe place to be, the Parrot Posse has stepped up to help. When hoarding or the disability of caretakers has resulted in seizures of birds, the Posse has stepped up.
No one involved with the Posse is paid for their services. The founder works hard to get discounts and donation so that every penny contributed to the organization is pinched until it squeals! And every transaction is transparent. Money is raised; it is used to purchase items that are shipped to help parrots, and then the purchases and shipments are carefully documented to anyone who chooses to follow the Posse’s activities. It is without a doubt one of the two most selfless and ethical non-profits I know of. The other is very, very small.
For a number of years, I was a keyworker with the Combined Federal Campaign. From that work, I know that there are many non-profits that actually use only a very small percentage of their receipts in direct furtherance of their non-profit purpose. The Posse uses 100% of its receipts in direct furtherance of its purpose.
I am proud to be a supporter of the Parrot Posse and its work. I wish all non-profits used the contributions received as thoroughly and efficiently as does the Posse.
