Review for Birds Of Paradise Sanctuary & Rescue Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

THE FEDERAL TAX EXEMPT STATUS FOR THIS ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN REVOKED!!!!!

MY QUESTION: IS THIS BEING RUN AS A LEGITIMATE 501C3 NON-PROFIT? According to the Federal Government that status had been revoked and I see no indication that it has been reinstated at the time of this posting. The Full link to the IRS webpage is below.

Birds Of Paradise Sanctuary & Rescue Inc
EIN: 45-3674500 | Bradenton, FL, United States

Organizations whose federal tax exempt status was automatically revoked for not filing a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years. Important note: Just because an organization appears on this list, it does not mean the organization is currently revoked, as they may have been reinstated.

As a potential donor/sponsor, I wanted to do a site visit and tried to contact them multiple times but they never responded. My experience with this organization has been negative.

I also came across some Facebook Groups with severe and heartbreaking criticism of Birds of Paradise Sanctuary. (Refer to Facebook Groups: Plight of the Parrots and Parrot Rescue MythBusters). I will let you make your own conclusion and have posted those links below.

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

FIRE THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS. ESTABLISH IT AS A LEGITIMATE 501c3.
