Clinics to teach you how to care for your Parrot – We encourage potential parrot owners to visit our sanctuary to see what is entailed to properly care for a parrot. Depending on time and travel we offer a program which includes a home visit to show the owner what to consider for the health and safety of their parrot. We also discuss the time it takes to keep your parrot healthy and stimulated, proper diet, proper medical care, proper cage size, recommended resources for reading and video study as well as how to handle the different behaviors exhibited by parrots. Clinics usually last 60 to 90 minutes and there is no charge.
Our facility is a safe and stress-free environment for your valued family member while you are away. Pictures and videos are sent regularly to update owners to add comfort to your experience. We have the ability to keep your pet by itself or surrounded by a flock giving it the additional stimulation inherent in a flock setting safely and disease free.
Avian Assisted Intervension Program Onsite
Avian assisted therapy program designed to use the bond between a person and parrot both having suffered a traumatic event and facilitating healing for both. (Please call for an appointment)
Many of our parrots crave human interaction and they are all candidates for our Trauma therapy program called Avian Assisted Therapy. We have a very detailed process that takes a person who has suffered trauma through a journey of healing with our parrots over a period of time. In the beginning phase pariticpants visit our sanctuary to help us identify which parrot the person will be paired with. Once that occurs a series of observation sessions outside an aviary are required. The next phase includes interaction with the parrot in its enclosure. After this period of adjustment for both our parrot and the individual we advance the person and their partnered parrot to have sessions together in a tranquil setting around our sanctuary.
This type of healing therapy is not considered to be clinical and is not held in a clinical setting, therefore we do not require health insurance and most importantly we do not charge a fee for this service. Our goal is to bring parrots and people who have suffered trauma together in a joyful and immersive environment for healing.
