UNDER MY WING FREE FLIGHT & OPEN CAGE ENVIRONMENT FOR EXOTIC BIRDS ​ESTABLISHED IN 2007


Our Devotion and Commitment are Continually Changing Parrots Lives

RESULTS OF THE IMPACT OF COVID-19​

 

As a valuable part of our community, the pandemic shutdown or any crisis has not and will not change the extraordinary care our birds receive each day. 

We will continue to press on because parrots still need care and it is our mission to provide proper care, protect and inspire people to care about our sanctuary birds.

We are extremely thankful to our team that worked extremely hard to manage this crisis and to our faithful financial supporters that helped us assure our sanctuary did not lack of basic needs, such as bird food, veterinary care, and shelter.​ 

​Donations from the community support veterinarian visits, surgeries, medication, as well as housing through 2021 extremely needed. A donation today will help us recover from the pandemic crisis and help us to keep a heathy budget throughout 2021. 

Please continue to support local causes that matter to you throughout the years!

We Missed You Too!


We heard countless stories about how much you missed visiting our sanctuary, meeting the birds and missing our programs.

Many of the birds have missed their normal interactions with people as they knew it. It has been hard without you to keep all the birds socialized as they were.

​​Even in the era of social distancing, we can still connect with you. We have established visitations by appointment and schedule volunteers accordingly as well.
