Other Pets at Shelter...
Bruce is a Yellow Naped Amazon who's owner is ill and can no longer take care of him, so he too is with a wonderful foster. Bruce likes to cuddle, purrs, likes to hang upside down and in perfect health an feather. What a great companion he will be for the right adopter!
Please go to www.Lilysanctuary.org/adoptions to read about our adoption process, fill out the application in detail, and submit. I will call you to arrange an appointment to meet her and the other birds we have needing loving homes. Sincerely, Sue. Lily Sanctuary Adoption Coordinator. SBendheim@aol.com
Rescue Group Info...
The Lily Sanctuary is named after an umbrella cockatoo that had a serious, life threatening disease and was not going to live past her 1st birthday, but with the appropriate vet care and a lot of love, she is now 20 years old and thriving. She is a miracle bird and the sanctuary founder Venette Hill started helping out homeless parrots from then on. She made it a 501c3 four years ago and presently has the sanctuary in her home. She is fastidiously clean and most of all, speaks fluent "parrot!" They love her and get a chance to heal and grow there, and the adoptable ones get another chance to have a family again.
We are a closed facility for the safety and health of the resident parrots. All incoming parrots are quarantined and tested for avian viruses before they are introduced to the rest of the flock, and all visitors need to make an appointment to see them. I have photos of most of the adoptable parrots on the Petfinder.com site which is updated frequently.
The Lily Sanctuary, with some adoptable birds in tow also frequent several adoption fairs and events in Orange County Ca, and attend at the O.C Pet Expo every year in May.
Our adopters must LOVE parrots! Go to www.lilysanctuary.org to see all the details. We have different adoption donation fees for different size parrots, and the application to adopt is online, interactive and will be responded to within 48 hours of sending. As stated above, the 60 mile radius from Fountain Valley (some exceptions occur and are based on experience of the adopter) is for adopters to get to know their parrot before they take them home for the comfort, security and an easier transition of the bird, and the home checks we do for all adopters.
Lily Sanctuary is a 501c3 sanctuary for unwanted parrots who rehabilitates sanctuaries and rehomes the adoptable parrots. Parrots, more often than not, outlive their owners and the need to rehome them is a common thing parrot purchasers don't often think about. Our 100% volunteer staff provides quality food, housing and vet care completely from donations caring people gift us. Our adoption program serves all residents within a 60 mile radius of Fountain Valley California. This is so the adopters can get to know the parrots who "pick them" before they are to go home with their new family.
