Programs and Services we offer are as follows:
a. 9-12 and college emphasis for those students wanting to go into vet medial field
b. k-12 General education on pet care/responsibility and parrot care
5. Parrots 4 Life - Upcoming Addition
We currently do not have this program available because we don't have space. Currently when we receive a bird that is deemed to need a Sanctuary setting we will partner with one of the other sanctuaries and place him with them. It is our goal to become a qualified Sanctuary very soon.
6. Community Outreach
a. Helping Hands - Designed to help keep parrot in the home when job loss, illness etc. Also help with them work through parrot behavior problems to try to keep the bird in the home instead of surrendering him.
b. Safe Haven- Helping parrots that belong to victims of domestic violence
c. PTSD Therapy- Designed to encourage Psychologists and counselors to utilize our program (not implemented yet) to work with their PTSD Clients. (See a successful program at www.serenitypark.org)
d. Special Friends- Program for mentally and physically challenged
7. Volunteer Program
a. We welcome group volunteers to help with things such as toymaking and treatmaking on your own property.
b. We of course want to work directly with other volunteer efforts such as schools or courts that require a specific number of volunteer hours and can provide opportunities for those needing to fullfill these hours.
c. All civic groups such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts etc. should contact us if their group wants to team up with us.
Note- Any person having any direct contact with the Haven birds must fill out a Liability Release Form and agree to not hold us responsible for any harm they may receive.
Any person coming to the Haven property must use our disinfectant procedures for the safety of the birds in our care.
