CARE appeared at the Wisconsin State Fair again this year! Every day some of the volunteers take birds down to the Fair. Lori also gives several presentations daily to educate the public on the challenges of keeping parrots and why they do not tend to make good pets for most people.
This also helps us to get our name out to more people, in the hopes that they will consider adoption when they are ready to add a parrot to their homes, and also to let people know there is a place where they can surrender their parrots instead of releasing them outside.
The parrots love going out and being the center of attention! We make sure to only take birds that thrive in these kinds of situations, and a volunteer is always ready to drive the bird back to the Center if they're feeling too uncomfortable. Below is a small sample of pictures of our time at the Fair.
We hope to see you down there next year!
