Make a Difference!
Be a part of caring for the birds of the Garuda Aviary,
a lifelong sanctuary for abused, neglected and abandoned
Thank you very much to all of our generous donors and supporters!
Your support really makes a difference in how much we can do for our Birds. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) Garuda Aviary relies solely on the generosity of our donors to keep our sanctuary up and running.
What do we provide at the Garuda Aviary?
At Garuda, we are committed to providing an extremely safe, nurturing and healthy environment with access to our outdoor flight cage, so that the birds can feel the sun and air on their wings.
Our birds receive an abundant and healthy diet including fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, nuts and seeds. Their cages are furnished with toys that are safe and appropriate to each breed.
We have one full time caretaker, referred to as our “Bird Man”, who attends to the daily needs of the birds and the Aviary. We also have a group of dedicated volunteers who help both inside and outside of the Aviary.
What does this cost?
It is very expensive to run a lifelong sanctuary. We have ongoing expenses for food (including fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, nuts and seeds) water, electricity, salary, building and grounds maintenance, plus other expenses.
We currently care for over 50 birds.
Why be part of caring for Garuda Aviary?
At Garuda, unlike other shelters, we specialize in a very difficult, neurotic and traumatized population of birds, as a result of their tragic past abuse and neglect. Because of the unique attributes of our population, our sanctuary could be described as a sort of long-term “psychiatric hospital” for traumatized companion parrots. We specialize in caring for those difficult and unwanted cases, many of whom have had no hope of finding any other home.
Since we are a lifelong shelter and do not adopt-out, we do not receive money from adoptions or from visitors looking to adopt a bird, who may want to support our program. We have a very stationary population. However, our expenses are ongoing and last the lifespan of our birds, which can be 30 – 70 years.
When you contribute to the Garuda Aviary, you are making a tangible difference in the lives of our beautiful parrots. You are supporting their ability to live in the comfort, care and safety of a lifelong sanctuary that will not be taken away from them. You are truly making a lasting difference in the quality of their lives. Your contribution ensures that Garuda Aviary remains as their lifelong home and shelter.
We invite you to join our community of supporters and become a part of nurturing and caring for these magnificent creatures today. You can be a part of ensuring that these companion parrots will always have lifelong shelter, care and sanctuary at the Garuda Aviary. Whether you are a one time or regular donor, all contributions make a real and lasting difference in the lives of our birds.
