How do we pay tribute to, immortalize, and eulogize a person who was our mentor, our friend, our animal caretaker; the list goes on. He was so much to so many, a person bigger than life, yet was very simple in his own needs. He did so much for so many tha ...

Pierce

Sadly, Pierce passed away during the Summer of 2014. Her necropsy showed that her organs were quite old and just couldn't support her body any longer. Pierce will be greatly missed! Pierce was a Red Tailed Hawk female who lived in the back garden. She ...

Professor
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Professor had found his forever home! Professor came to us because his dad became too sick to take care of him any longer. We didn't know how old he was, but he was a friendly bird, easily steped up on any offered hand. He whistled a lot and responded ...

It is with a heavy heart that we are posting the loss of Scout, our long-lived Peach Faced Lovebird. Scout was a fiesty little lovebird who acted like she was a cockatoo. She protected her cage fiercely and is a whiz at chewing up her cage paper into tiny ...

Sigh
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Sigh is one of the most colorful Moluccans at the Refuge and that is because he wears a “Sock Buddy” donated to the Refuge from Suzanne Freeman. His guardian for twenty years was a smoker and the nicotine from the man’s hands seeped into Sigh and conseque ...

Tara
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

If Tara could, I bet she'd tell you: "Thank you. My life was very confusing at the end, and I was so upset and lonely. When you took me into your home, I was given food and water and so many people played with me and held me. I was very happy. But I was v ...
