At FEBS, our one and only purpose is to provide a safe haven for parrots to live out their lives in a happy, healthy and natural environment.
With millions of baby parrots and Exotic birds being produced by the pet trade each year, the population of captive birds continues to grow. As peoples’ interests fade and the birds AND the people get older, the overpopulation of parrots is destined to become a heartbreaking tragedy. This is now the case with cats and dogs where four to five MILLION are euthanized every year.
With their long life spans, parrots have a built-in homeless factor because every long-lived parrot will outlive his or her original guardian, and even the smaller birds that have life spans of 40 – 50 years will face the eventual aging problems of their human caretakers.
There are many reasons that a parrot will lose his or her home during their lifetime including health problems of the parrot’s guardians, downsizing, caring for someone in the family, a new baby, a move and many others. With all of these factors we are more determined than ever to continue our efforts and mission of growing and being able to help many more Parrots find their way to us and sanctuary life reimagined!
