Press & Recognition

birdStuff™ is proud to have achieved recognition from the industry and more importantly, our customers. We'll never stop working to earn your trust. Below you can read about some of our industry honors that we are very proud of.

On January 15, 2015, birdStuff™ was featured in an article by CBS Los Angeles as one of five Best Pet Shops for Birds in Orange County. The copy from this article is found below:

Located in Orange, Birdstuff is a supply store and boarding home which offers “all the best stuff for the discriminating parrot.” They also pride themselves on being able to find toys for birds that “won’t play with toys.” Besides selling plenty of bird supplies, they will also board birds and provide them all with necessary care. This includes medical care, and the pet store is actually adjacent to a bird clinic with a veterinarian. On your bird’s last day of boarding, he can be bathed for his enjoyment and hygiene.

We were please that the reporter captured our philosophy so well.


Donna is frequently consulted for articles in pet bird publications. Because of this, when USA Today wanted to do an article on bird ownership, her name was given to their editors by the editors of BirdTalk magazine. This article will be included in their special "pet" edition, set to come out around July, 2012.


In December 2007, the readers of BirdTalk magazine, a national publication to over 100,000 bird owners, voted on their favorite bird store and we were voted as the #1 favorite! (see below) This means so much because it's the customers that voted. We didn't know you guys were voting, but you know who you are, so thanks a million!

And as if that wasn't enough, in August of 2008 we were thrilled to be chosen by Pet Product News, the leading trade publication in the pet industry, as one of the top dozen pet stores (all pets) in the US and Canada! birdStuff™ was chosen from among hundreds of applicants in a competition that scrutinized items such as best customer service, best promotions, best merchandising, community service, employee training, and many other criteria. This is a great honor because it means recognition from peers, manufacturers, marketers, and by reputation. The press release for this follows, and a full story on birdStuff™ will be featured in the magazine's November issue which we will share with you.

Pet Product News International® Honors
birdStuff™ with a Retailer of the Year Runner-Up Award

Irvine, Calif. – In its annual contest to find the best pet industry retailer, Pet Product News International, the leading monthly trade newsmagazine covering the issues and trends affecting all sectors of the professional pet industry, announced that birdStuff™ received one of the runner-up awards in its 2008-2009 Retailer of the Year contest.

Pet Product News International will profile the retailer in the November issue of the magazine. Runners-up are granted a seat to serve on the Pet Product News International Retail Advisory Board as part of the honor.

BirdStuff™ is located in Orange, Calif., and its owner, Donna Garrou, has more than 25 years’ experience keeping all species of birds and a strong marketing and product design background. The shop was recently voted by customers of Bird Talk magazine as one of the top 12 bird stores in the nation. The business does not sell birds, just bird products and gifts, but does offer grooming and boarding services. We recognize Garrou and birdStuff™ for successfully educating the bird-loving community.

The Retailer of the Year Awards were created 12 years ago to recognize retail excellence in the pet industry. Candidates are initially selected from surveys distributed to retailers via the magazine and BowTie Inc.’s Retailer Sales force. Retailers are then reviewed and evaluated by a panel of Pet Product News International staff members on such criteria as employee training practices, promotion of companion animals and pet adoptions, involvement with professional and service organizations, innovative promotion, effective strategies in the marketplace, community impact and industry impact. This year there were almost 200 applicants for the award.

The Retailer of the Year contest is sponsored this year by World Wide Pet Industry Assn., the oldest pet industry trade association and sponsor of the annual SuperZoo trade show in Las Vegas.
