PARROT SANCTUARY TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE

Continued from Home Page.
Siesta Sanctuary invites the public to a Summer Open House on Saturday, August 4th from 1 to 5 PM. The open house will give the public an opportunity to stop by and see the birds, hear the parrots talk and sing, play catch with a Cockatoo or learn about parrots in the wild. Siesta Sancturay is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to providing a permanent home to parrots in need. Parrots are eligible to stay at the Sanctuary if the bird/birds have physical or behaivor issues, unable to be adopted through other agencies, or have an emergency due to health issues, abuse, or dire need of permanecy for any reason. Siesta Sanctuary was founded in 2006, as a home for parrots who have been displaced and need permanency. Parrots are wild animals that live 30 to 80 years. They are very intelligent and social. In the wild they naturally “flock” together. It is Siesta Sanctuary’s mission to recreate the flock for parrots who have had their human flock disrupted. It costs roughly $16,000 annually (roughly $45 per day) to house and feed the flock. Any donation, large or small helps immensely.
One hundred percent (100%) of all money donated goes to the Sanctuary's upkeep, food and medical expenses for the birds. The Sanctuary is located at 104 Brown Road in Harmony.
