The Exotic Birds Sanctuary was dedicated to enhancing the life of companionship birds through education, rescue, and rehabilitation.
Here are some parrots that don’t need saving…
Not many people saw Prody Parrot (left). It was a talking character that was bundled with an old Soundblaster audio card. On the right, was Preedy Parrot, one of the Microsoft Agents, who spoke, made sounds and distracting gestures. All of these computer talking agents were never as good as the original talking moose, according to this site’s new owner, Dr. Halls.
Below is the description of the original Ontario Parrot Rescue project.
Ontario Parrot Rescue was our name until we registered as a Not For Profit than we changed it to Freedom Flights Exotic Parrot Rescue/Sanctuary/Education.
Freedom Flights Exotic Parrot Rescue/Sanctuary/Education located 30 minutes from London Ontario. Our primary focus is on reducing the spread of diseases with rescue parrots, and improving avian health for the rescue parrots who come here. We do it by ensuring rescue parrots accepted to receive an immediate veterinary assessment, and the proper care.
Unfortunately, there are no hard-and-fast rules for parrot rescue procedures. So, with the many types of avian diseases that exist with rescue parrots, there is a serious risk of cross-contamination.
Freedom Flights Exotic Parrot Rescue/Sanctuary/Education, takes pride in their guiding principle; each rescued parrot will be seen by their vet. It is our firm belief not taking these safety precautions, with every rescue parrot arrival, is UNACCEPTABLE.
The purpose of our mandatory entry, level, and veterinary assessment is to reduce the risk of spreading diseases with rescue parrots. The decision to do this was made following feedback we received about poor parrot rescue habits. Much of what we found indicated their many cases in Ontario, were rescued parrots are not seen by a qualified vet, unless they appear ill.
Parrots, being true to their character do not always visibly exhibit signs of illness until the later stages of a disease. Unfortunately, in this scenario, what can occur is the infectious process spreads to other parrots? However, most infectious diseases are preventable by a proper screening of the rescue parrot.
