About Our Rescue Group:

Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue is a nonprofit organization committed to providing a safe haven, including proper veterinary care, nutrition, socialization, physical and mental stimulation, and clean, spacious living areas for exotic birds. Space is not only provided in our home, but in our hearts. We work solely on private donations and adoption fees. Donations and contributions are always needed and welcome. We believe in Quality of Life for all living beings. If a bird is suffering, in pain, or deeply distressed with no hope for a better future, we feel it is our duty to do whatever is necassary to make it better. We will do whatever needs to be done to ensure that we accomplish this very important goal.

We don't profit from placing birds and have no paid staff Ś everyone associated with Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue is a devoted volunteer. However, in order to maintain our programs and our high standard of avian care, we must require reasonable fees from adopters. Many birds will need our care indefinitely Ś some for the rest of their lives. Every dollar that Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue brings in is used to promote our mission and provide for birds in need. The adoption fee varies depending on species and is due in full at the time of adoption.

Parrots have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years, and too many of the people who are drawn to their beauty are unaware of the challenges of keeping an animal only a generation or two removed from the wild. Birds are messy, and some can be very loud. Unless purchased from a reputable breeder or bird shop that understands the importance of good health, socialization and proper handling after purchase, problems such as biting can pop up. Birds are also given up when a bird owner marries, or when children arrive, or sometimes because the owner can no longer handle the work involved in keeping such a high-maintenance pet. The long lives of parrots can also leave them vulnerable ľ with life spans measured in decades, some birds outlive their owners. For all these reasons and many more, too many parrots end up going from home to home before ending up in a place like Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue if they're lucky or facing euthanasia if they're not. Few community shelters and humane groups are equipped to handle birds, which makes parrot sanctuaries even more important.

Come Meet our Pets:

FFS&R is located in Edgerton, WI.
1570 County Rd A
Edgerton, WI 53534
We are open to the public on Sundays from 11 to 3pm, any other time by appointment only.
We have a trim session every second Sunday of the month. There is no fee for the trims, but donations are gladly accepted.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application to be filled out. Our adoption committee either approves or denies the application. This usually takes one to two weeks. After the applicant is approved we will discuss the adoption fees for our birds. If approved, the applicant is invited to the Rescue to meet the birds. We believe that the bird should pick the human. If a match is made, the applicant will be required to sign an adoption contract. Home visits are made on occasion. We only accept cash for adoption fees.

Why should you adopt?

birds can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a bird for sale or finding a bird breeder, adopting a bird from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a bird to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a bird. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your bird needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a bird. There are different types of birds including African Grey, Amazon, Brotogeris, Budgie, Button Quail, Caique, Canary, Chicken, Cockatiel, Cockatoo, Conure, Dove, Duck, Eclectus, Emu, Finch, Goose, Guinea Fowl, Kakariki, Lorikeet, Lovebird, Macaw, Mynah, Ostrich, Parakeet - Other, Parakeet - Quaker, Parrot - Other, Parrotlet, Peacock, Pheasant, Pigeon, Pionus, Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's), Quail, Rhea, Ringneck, Rosella, Softbill - Other, Swan, Toucan, and Turkey.
