A word from Matt smith, project perry founder

MAY 15, 2021 - until further notice


Dear fellow bird enthusiast interested in visiting the sanctuary,

With the wind down of COVID restrictions and mandates, interest and requests to visit the sanctuary are increasing.  While we appreciate the love and public's interest in our work,...and to see it firsthand, we need to balance daily work requirements and extra projects we continue to work on (including the completion of one aviary build and the beginning of another new aviary build) with conducting public visitation.  The average visitation in around 3 hours!  


At this time, priority will be given to donors to the sanctuary including Parrot Sponsors and Lifetime of Care participants.  We sincerely appreciate your understanding of the large work load and countless hours it takes to maintain and grow the sanctuary for the betterment of our 200+ avian residents.  If you want to visit your bird here, please understand that we are a working sanctuary and we need enough notice in order to fit in visitors on top of our daily responsibilities.  We will do our best to honor all visitation requests from our LOC Members and Sponsors. 

-Matt Smith, Executive Director

For new sponsors who are sponsoring a parrot and wish to visit, Parakeet sponsorships must be paid in one annual lump sum. Cockatiel Sponsorships require half a year up front.  Conure/Hahns/and the like must be paid half a year up front as well.  


Unfortunately, we found that there were a few new sponsors interested in setting up a parakeet sponsorship monthly ($5) to visit, and then canceled their sponsorship or didn't continue sponsoring the bird after visiting.  That is unfair to those who take the sponsorship program seriously and generously support the parrots here at Project Perry for the long term.  


Sadly, "The actions of a few" ruin for the rest of you genuinely interested in sponsoring.  Sponsors are allowed to bring ONE guest along with them.  For example a spouse or child.  Group visitations are currently unavailable.  Smaller children may not be allowed in the aviaries to visit your sponsored bird(s) so it would be best to check with someone at the sanctuary first.  

Parakeet Annual $60 required up front in full - (full year sponsorship/visits)

Cockatiel Annual $120 annual ($60 up front) - (6 months sponsorship/visits)

Conure/Hahns/etc $300 annual ($60 up front) - (3 months sponsorship/visits)
