Welcome to the Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary!

Our Mission Statement

The Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary is dedicated to the care and wellbeing of parrots and other exotic birds. We do not breed, sell, trade, or offer for adoption the birds in our care. Instead, we endeavor to provide them with a permanent home that allows them to mingle with other compatible birds in outdoor open-flight aviaries. We also strive to provide permanent, caring homes for birds with special needs, including those with physical challenges or behavioral issues. Finally, we are committed to raising public awareness regarding the moral responsibilities and physical demands of keeping parrots or other wild animals as pets.

“We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit,” says Patricia Norton. The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, FEBS was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, we’ll been added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide - an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.
“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”
Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.

WESLEY CHAPEL — Patricia Norton grabbed a handful of peanuts and stepped into the 1,500-square-foot aviary, home to 42 macaws whose colors rival rainbows. She raised her arms and two blue and yellow birds imitated, lifting their wings in return for a treat. Along came 12-year-old green beauty named Fenix, who just wanted his head scratched.

After a long 2 year search, FEBS has finally found the perfect property for its desperately needed expansion. More importantly, we will be able to give ALL of the 370+ Parrots in our care flight cages! We will also be able to help many more Parrots on our waiting list! All of them are waiting for their chance to “Just Be A Bird”!

However, a project this massive is going to take lots of dedication and financial support! The staff, Officers, Board Members, and Volunteers are all committed to putting their all into the expansion and eventual relocation of the FEBS Parrots in our Lifelong Care Facility.

So we ask all of you, our loyal supporters, to please consider helping in any way you can! Sponsoring a flight cage is a really helpful part of the bigger vision and we really need you guys, the Bird Family’s and Friends of our flock!

Please consider that this project will cost an estimated $150,000! Currently we have raised $60,000 of that amount needed, which we are eternally grateful for! If you or a business that you own are able to help or if you know of anyone who may be able to help FEBS please contact Patricia Norton (A.K.A. The Birdmother) at toll free: 1-844-352-2473 or simply click on the Big Blue Feather to the right to donate (tax deductible) funds toward this very important project!

Testimonial of Lisa MacDonnell, Concord, MA
I am the proud owner of Skipper, a 12 year old Blue-Crowned Conure that my daughter, Sarah, and I acquired when he was 4 months old from a local pet shop in Massachusetts.  Skipper immediately became a beloved member of our family.  Sarah was 6 years old when we brought Skipper home, and he fell in love with her.  Skipper was also great pals with our dog, Nicki, but ultimately, he was my bird and he loved and trusted me above all others… Click here to read more...
