Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary was founded in 1998 and since then has seen many changes and periods of growth.
With the ever-increasing number of exotic birds entering the pet marketplace, the issue of unwanted birds is rapidly growing. It is suspected that in the very near future we will begin to see the unwanted exotic bird problem reach the same magnitude as it is with cats and dogs. Exotic birds become an even greater problem than cats or dogs because of their lengthy life spans and their high demand for our time and attention.
On average, a companion bird will have seven different homes in its lifetime. We, at Greyhaven, like to tell prospective new bird owners that if the thought of cooking, cleaning and entertaining a perpetual 2 year old for the next 10 to 100 years excites them then they will probably make good bird parents! The challenge for rescue groups is the ever-increasing number of animals entering their facilities.
Greyhaven receives calls almost daily from people who want to give up their birds, and in many cases this could have been avoided with proper education. This is why we believe our educational programs are so important and why we are striving to do as much as we possibly can in this area.
Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary was given notice to vacate our premises as the property was undergoing changes and could no longer accommodate the sanctuary. Our transition went very smoothly. We continue to operate all our programs as we always have and are in need of a new sanctuary.
We would like to obtain a new location to house an adoption centre with a quarantine, hospital and education area. If you are aware of anyone that might help us secure new premises, please contact us and we would be more than pleased to arrange a meeting at a mutually agreeable time. We look forward to setting up the sanctuary in a new and improved location as soon as possible. The parrots are all waiting for human companions with BIG hearts to give them a home where they will find security and a sense of belonging.
Please help us continue our important work by helping us find a new shelter location. Thank you for your support.
