Hi. I'm Chris Goddard, and welcome to my webpage. If you've
come here to learn more about me, then I hope you can find some useful
Improvement FAQ - I can't verify the accuracy of all of the facts
in this FAQ, but it is certainly an interesting read.

This is a place in Arizona run by dedicated people who care for captive
exotic birds. Lucy, the bird companion of me and my family for
the first 17 years of my life, is currently living there with her new
friend Pele. We thought that things would be better for her if
she could be with other birds and around people for more of the
day. She seemed very depressed and frusterated in the months
before we made the decision to turn her over (picking on and pulling
out feathers). This turns out to be a very common thing for exotic
birds though, something we didn't find out about until problems
arose. My parents went to Arizona first to check out the
Sanctuary before we
decided to leave Lucy in their care, and they only had good things to
say when they came back. Please donate to the sanctuary if you
can, as they have no other sources of funding besides donations.
And please reconsider buying or adopting exotic pets if you were
thinking about it. Exotic pets, especially birds, have the best
chance of having a fulfilled life if they are left in the wild.
No matter how much attention and love you think you can give to them,
sometimes it isn't enough.
