In this blog category we are highlighting some of the great testimonials that we receive every day praising the work that FEBS does. We would like to share all of these beautifully kind words with all of you. When available we will provide the reviewer’s name but sometimes people prefer to be anonymous and we will always respect their privacy.

“I am overwhelmed by the work that the Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary does. Never have I seen so much compassion and love devoted to such a wonderful cause.

The birds that come to this sanctuary need tons of attention, love, and caring and they ALL get just that. It’s amazing!

So many of these birds would never have had an opportunity to live a happy, healthy, quality life of just ‘being a bird’ had it not been for this organization.

All the birds that make FEBS their ‘Forever Home’ thrive here even the ones that come in bad shape. With lots of love and attention they all relax, recover, and settle in with their new family – human AND feathered!

Because of the passion and compassion that FEBS maintains my fiance and I have sponsored one of the birds there! This is an organization that I can stand behind and support! I hope you decide to as well!”

We at FEBS thank you all for your generous gifts and loving words. It really helps us all to absolutely realize that we are making a great difference in not only the lives of the birds that we help but also in the lives of those who love them, call them family but can no longer take care of them properly.

If you have had a great experience with FEBS and would like to give your own testimonial we would love it if you could visit our Great Non-Profits site by CLICKING HERE and leave a review there. We will be picking reviews from there to highlight here on our FEBS blog. You will also be helping FEBS to be seen by building our reputation on Great Non-Profits which puts us in front of many potential donors and volunteers. Thank you from all of us here at FEBS!


Sadly, This Is A Typical Email That FEBS Gets Every Day!

Below is a typical email that FEBS gets almost every day now.

“We are getting very old and will need a place for our birds. We have many kinds of birds. This will break my heart but I am in a wheelchair at this time and I don’t expect to ever walk much again. I have had breeders for many years. I would like to know more about your set up, etc.”

This is very sad indeed but it is reality and only reinforces the need for FEBS to expand so that we can help more birds and their owners that are in need.

We are asking if each and everyone of you reading this post today could do everything that you can to help FEBS get that new piece of land so we can expand our sanctuary.

We know that all of you are already doing everything possible but getting emails like this is very disturbing to all of us at FEBS. This is why FEBS is here doing what we are doing.

Thank you all so much. We promise that we will not take in more than we can handle but our services are seriously needed more and more every day!

“My Sulphur Cockatoo had no place to go because we moved to a smaller home and it was quite difficult to keep her in our small living room in her large cage.

We had fostered her in the hope to find a forever home but were disappointed when we started looking until we visited FEBS.

We were impressed at the concern for the birds by the caretaker and finally we knew we had found our Snow, a forever home!”

We at FEBS thank you all for your generous gifts and loving words.

Meet The Residents: Dude, The Miligold Macaw

Today we would like to introduce you to Dude, the Miligold Macaw. Dude was owned by a veterinarian, Dr. Richard Goldman. He was brought to FEBS because Dr. Goldman was retiring and moving to a northern climate and it just wouldn’t be a great environment for a Macaw. Dude was and still is very loved by Dr. Goldman and he checks up on Dude frequently.

Since being brought to FEBS Dude has been placed in the big flight aviary. He does not particularly care for human interaction which is fine because he is after all a wild bird who loves to be with other birds.

Dude and his lady friend in the Macaw aviary at FEBS.

Dude has totally bonded and fallen in love with a Blue and Gold Macaw female in the flight aviary, He is also happy, healthy and thriving here at FEBS. He is allowed to just be a bird here and that seems to please him.

Dude is not the only bird that a veterinarian has entrusted FEBS with. I think it is a great honor to know that even veterinarians trust us with their own birds. Thank you Dr. Goldman for giving us the privilege of taking care of  your beloved Dude!

Testimonial: A Veterinarian Places His Own Bird At FEBS!

We would like to share all of these beautifully kind words with all of you. When available we will provide the reviewer’s name but sometimes people prefer to be anonymous and we will always respect their privacy.

“As a retiring veterinarian moving to a more northern climate, I needed to rehouse my 20 year old Macaw, Dude in a situation that would meet his needs and my protective instincts. My research led me to Pat and FEBS.

After meeting Pat and touring FEBS, I quickly came to the conclusion that I had found Dude’s true sanctuary. I found both the facility and the philosophy and commitment of FEBS staff and volunteers to be outstanding.

It has been a relief and a blessing to have FEBS there to soften the impact of having to ‘leave’ my friend. His adjustment was compassionately managed, successfully, and he even has a Blue & Gold Macaw girlfriend now!

I recommend and commend FEBS for their dedication and compassion for these special, intelligent and social creatures.” – Dr. Richard Goldman

Help FEBS By Joining The Logitech Alert Refer-A-Friend Program!

header_logo

Recently FEBS received a few Logitech cameras for the Sanctuary (more on that in an upcoming blog so stay tuned). With the new cameras FEBS signed up for the Logitech Alert Refer-A-Friend Program.

With this program you and everyone you know can help FEBS while helping yourself. You see, for every person that purchases a Logitech camera and mentions that FEBS sent them Logitech gives FEBS a $25 credit on our account with them.

This credit can be used towards FEBS’ yearly Logitech subscription cost of $79. Currently we have had one person purchase a Logitech product and mention FEBS so we only need two more people to do so to pay for this year’s subscription.

Our goal is to get enough of you mentioning FEBS to Logitech that we never have to worry about paying for the annual subscription for our Logitech Alert cameras.

LogitechMasterSys

So if you or someone you know are shopping for a Logitech Alert Security System please mention FEBS. Not only does FEBS get a $25 credit but the person buying the system also gets a $25 discount plus 30% off of a multiple camera purchase! Sounds like a sweet deal for everyone involved.

If you would like to take advantage of this great deal please CLICK HERE to go to FEBS’ exclusive Logitech Alert Refer-A-Friend Program link and don’t forget to tell Logitech that the Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary sent you.
