SAVE THE DATE: November 29th
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We've created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.
September 2016 Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. was granted the certificate from the ASA association.
Founded in 1998, the American Sanctuary Association (ASA) has two primary programs. First, it is an accrediting organization that requires member animal sanctuaries to comply with a variety of high quality animal care standards and housing requirements. Besides a detailed application process, in which we review organizational qualifications such as financial stability, fundraising procedures, board oversight, permits and licenses, organizational bylaws, educational materials and veterinary references, we also visit all animal sanctuaries to assure that their facilities and animal care merit our endorsement. In addition, ASA member sanctuaries are not allowed to breed, sell or trade animals, or use them for commercial purposes.
Second, ASA actively works every single day to find sanctuary placement for a multitude of homeless, abandoned, seized and abused exotic animals, non-releasable native wild animals, farmed animals and companion animals. Whenever national animal protection organizations, state and local rescue groups, individual activists, SPCA’s, animal control agencies, and state wildlife departments, need help with difficult to place animals, they often turn to ASA. And we have also placed a large number of primates formerly used in testing and research.
That’s our job--saving animals from death or further abuse, and certifying quality animal sanctuaries so the public will know which ones are truly worthy of support.

Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. is here to help the birds. We take in birds (conure size and larger) that can no longer stay in their current home and after rehabilitation physically and emotionally we then look for the perfect new home for this bird. It is important to us that these new homes make a very dedicated LONG-TERM commitment to these birds. If you feel that you are ready to make this LONG TERM COMMITMENT then please take a look at the birds we have available for adoption.
The Haven has been running at full capacity for our space for a very long time. For the past 13.5 years we have been operating off of "borrowed" land that belongs to our founder. We need to purchase land of our own. Only with your donations and support we can accomplish this goal. Please consider making a very generous donation to the Haven NOW! As always each donation is tax deductible. Please give NOW!
We were recently invited to visit Good Morning Texas. It was a lot of fun.
We are so excited that you are interested in adopting a bird from the Haven. We have several beautiful birds here that are just waiting for a new home.
Please go HERE to fill out the PARROT INTEREST SURVEY- It is number 4 Once you have filled out the survey the board will review it. If you are eligible to adopt a bird from the Haven one of our board members will get back in touch with you to begin the next step in the process.

Want to Volunteer???
Please consider coming out to one of our workdays as this is a great way to help in many different ways to take care of the birds in our care. Not only will you get the chance to learn a lot about parrot care including diet,and health,, but you will get to help us with other things such as toy-making, remodeling and other much needed jobs that have to be done. Maybe it isn't as much fun to do these "not so fun" jobs but... just know that your willingness to participate in these jobs is helping the parrots even more so than the hands-on opportunities. Please go to the Haven calendar and mark these dates on your personal calendar now so you can set aside these dates to help the birds at the Haven.
