Building Fund

Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee

Exotic Avian Sanctuary of Tennessee (EAST) is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Parrot Welfare Organization that takes in Parrots in the state of TN, from owners who can no longer care for them due to a variety of different circumstances. 

Through home visits and education, we then do our best to find adoptive families. We make sure every family has the knowledge and ability to care for these intelligent, long lived birds. 

We recently purchased 5 acres of land to be able to expand and construct a 40x70 building for the Parrots that are, and will be under our care. This will allow us to continue to provide the best care to those who are surrendered to us while they wait for their new families, and for some, who may not be suitable for adoption, we will provide a permanent residence. 

The building will be fully functional, with a kitchen, an adoption (quiet) room for those wishing to visit with our adoptable birds, a bathroom for guests and volunteers, storage, and most importantly, indoor aviaries with access to outdoor aviaries for fresh air and sunshine. For the most part we wish to go "cage free". We do realize not every bird does well in an aviary situation with other birds of their kind, so they will be in large cages, out whenever possible, and will also have access to outdoor time. 

This has been our goal since the inception of EAST, and with your help, we can make this a reality.
