At Feathered Friends Forever, we know these are uncertain and difficult times. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on people worldwide. Unfortunately, the entire population is suffering from this devastation and we are no different.
As an all-volunteer run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Feathered Friends Forever has always strived to provide parrots with an intermittent or permanent safe haven. Since our humble beginnings, we have taken pride in:
- Caring for parrots of deployed military personnel free of charge
- Providing temporary housing for parrots when disaster strikes free of charge
- Rehabilitating abused and handicapped parrots from across the US free of charge
- Assisting local law enforcement by taking in parrots that are victims of hoarding or cruelty free of charge
Because parrots are our life, Feathered Friends Forever will continue to provide for parrots in need, but we can't do it alone.
The harsh reality is that Feathered Friends Forever is in a crisis of our own. In the past, we have relied on the generosity of visitors to our facility and our supporters to continue caring for the parrots. In accordance with the state's stay-at-home order and in order to protect the health and welfare of our volunteers, Feathered Friends Forever has halted all onsite visits and tours. In addition, many of our supporters have lost their jobs and are no longer able to assist our organization financially.
Although we are a 100% volunteer run organization, we still incur monthly costs - mortgage, utilities, veterinary care, parrot food, etc...
Your donation will help provide immediate financial support for over 800 parrots residing at our facility and prepare us for any emergency incoming parrots that may arrive due to this pandemic.
If you are in a position to assist us in this time of need, please do. Your donation is greatly appreciated. In addition, GoFundMe Charities will donate $1,000 to the first 30 non-profits who raise a minimum of $1,000 from at least 10 different donors, so please consider helping us out.
Thank you in advance! With your love and support, we can get through this.
