EARTH STOP ONE FOUNDATION IS A REGISTERED CHARITY THAT PROVIDES A PERMANENT HOME FOR NO LONGER WANTED,ABUSED OR NEGLECTED PRE-OWNED EXOTIC BIRDS.
Earth Stop One Foundation is run by volunteers, we have no paid staff.
Earth Stop One Foundation has strict policies that govern the care of the birds.The Foundation strictly abides by them and guarantees that the birds have never been or will ever be used for animal testing, sold, traded or used for breeding purposes. The Foundation does not re-home birds for any reason. They have a life time home. Earth Stop One Foundation has a no kill policy. No bird is euthanized unless it is a medical issue that can not be resolved and is recommended by a certified avian vet. All birds are vet checked on a regular basis by a certified avian vet. The Foundation provides rehabilitation of birds that require it. Earth Stop One recognizes that each bird and species of bird has it own needs and requirements. That is why we use large cages for the birds so they have room to play, forage, and stretch their wings. Earth Stop One also recognizes the intelligence and creativity of the birds and provides activities and toys to meet not only their basic needs but also to provide the mental stimulation needed. The birds are given a variety of food that mimics, as close as possible, their natural diet. When natural diet is not possible then substitutions are made to ensure they receive a nutritious, inviting, appealing, balanced diet.
The need for a bird sanctuary in Alberta was so overwhelming it necessitated the decision to find land and formally establish Earth Stop One Foundation.
The land, near Drayton Valley is 110 kilometers southwest of Alberta's
capital city, Edmonton.
With the creek, trees and meadows, it is an ideal location for the Sanctuary.
Earth Stop One Foundation was formed in 2002 and became a registered charity in 2006, many of the people who contact us have asked for help and advice due to this effort many birds have stayed with their families. Happily and successfully!
