Our Parrots 4 Life Program is for birds deemed unadoptable due to aggression, retired breeders, those ill or taking daily meds for life, or possibly just for the bird that makes it very clear he prefers the aviary concept. This program is not established yet because we do not have outdoor flock aviaries built yet, Our goal is to build species-specific flights for these birds that cannot (for various reasons) be adopted out into homes.
For now, when we get these birds we will try to reach out to other parrot Sanctuaries across the nation and place these birds in their care. It has been our understanding through research that most of these facilities charge 1000.00 or more (a year) for placing a bird in their sanctuary. Very soon we will be able to provide this much-needed sanctuary care. In the meantime, we will be very careful of our placement when we place them with other facilities. Obviously, we require the following:
- nutritional diet
- adequate enrichment activities
- adequate flight cage with plenty of room to fly
- adequate temperature control- with sunshine included
- daily maintenance--- yet as stress-free (little human intervention) as possible
- medical/vet care when needed
Very soon we will be able to offer this ourselves.
