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.

FEBS Finds Perfect Property For Expansion!

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 813-545-5406 or simply click on the Big Blue Feather to the right to donate (tax deductible) funds toward this very important project!

Our Capital Campaign - Spreading Our Wings in 2014!
Stacks Image 130
In response to Parrot Owners requesting our services, FEBS is taking the necessary steps to expand our facility. FEBS has over 300 Parrots in it’s care for life. We are currently launching a major campaign in 2014 to raise funds to help so many more Parrots find their way to us and the freedom we provide them “To Just Be A Bird”. Also, providing the Parrot Owner with the peace of mind that their beloved Parrot will remain with us for the rest of their life in a natural, well cared for and loving environment! Flying free and interacting with their own kind has proven time and again, key to these social birds long term happiness.

How we are going to accomplish this:
We are asking for tax deductible donations from the Bird Lovers, Enthusiasts, and the Parrot owners, who are thinking of placing parrots with us. As we meet a monetary level - see the “Flight Tree” - The thermometer will indicate how much money we have raised to date.

We have located a property for our expansion and with the cost of the new property, relocating 300 parrots and building new flight aviaries, our goal for this fundraising campaign is to raise $150,000. Our Board of Directors will ensure that all money raised will be placed in an ESCROW ACCOUNT that is already established at 5/3rd Bank. Of course all of our records are open for public viewing!

We are also working on Corporate Sponsorship programs. Any Company that wishes to donate to FEBS will be recognized and mentioned and linked on our website as well.

It will take time to move the current Sanctuary and all Newsletter recipients will be notified as to what stage we are in, so please make sure you join the newsletter and make sure that your email address is accurate with us.

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...
