Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue, Inc. Animal rescue in Edgerton, WI

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.

We don't profit from placing birds and have no paid staff — 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 — 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. 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 – 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.

Additional adoption info

We require an adoption questionnaire to be filled out before a visit to the rescue can be scheduled.Our adoption committee either approves or denies the application. If approved, the applicant is invited to the rescue to meet the birds. We believe that the bird should pick the human. Several visits to the rescue with the bird are required before an adoption can take place. Home visits are also required.
