5. Community Outreach

6. Adoption (Foster as needed)
7. Parrots 4 Life- 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 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. We have the land now---- just need the building.
