PARROTS AND OTHER EXOTIC PET BIRDS PRESENT UNIQUE CHALLENGES WHEN IT COMES TO ANIMAL WELFARE
For many birds, the loss of an owner leads to a grim future. The stress of traumatic situations often results in plucking, biting, screaming and other negative behaviors that can make a bird unappealing and unwanted.
The majority of animal shelters do not accept or are not equipped to handle birds and thus re-homing a parrot becomes significantly more difficult.
WE "STEP UP" TO FILL THE VOID
RUFFLED FEATHERS SANCTUARY holds the birds' best interests as our highest priority, and are dedicated to providing for their physical and social needs, allowing our birds to live out their long lives in a natural flock setting down in Florida.
With the help of dedicated volunteers, sponsors, and contributions we have laid the groundwork for a self-sustainable organization that offers refuge for a great number of these birds, and we are one of the only organizations dedicated specifically to their rescue, rehabilitation and permanent sanctuary.
