How we started....
F.E.A.T.H.E.R.S. began in November 2004 when several of us wanted to learn more and help to find homes for parrots that had outlived their owners. We have found homes for many birds ranging from budgies to large macaws & cockatoos. Although we are based on Vancouver Island, we welcome new members from other areas of Canada. If you live here on the Island or on the mainland, please join us & participate at our monthly get togethers, barbeques and special events!
Our motto is: "Supporting Parrots and their People"...
What makes us different from other Clubs or Organizations?
F.E.A.T.H.E.R.S. is neither a bird club or a Rescue Group. Paradoxically, in some ways we are both! By adopting a bird through our organization, or by putting your own bird up for adoption to a suitable screened and approved home, you can help. Even if only in a small way actions you take could help end the cycle of breeding and the ever-increasing numbers of homeless birds. There are many people who truly wish to share their lives with an avian companion. If unwanted birds are merely warehoused, unavailable to those who would love them, it simply opens the door for more and more to be born.
