Highlights from Thursday

Yesterday was a very busy day - you just never know what the day is going to bring. Macy, the canary-winged parakeet, and Gracie, the parrotlet, both went home. Two lovebirds were surrendered. Unfortunately, we surpassed the 400 mark in surrenders this year. Last year we had 321 birds surrendered, so that's a whole lot more than last year. We still have lots of really nice birds available for adoption. We will be open on Saturday from 12-5 - feel free to stop in and say hi.

Just a reminder that CARE will be open from 1-3 today for any last minute gifts.  We will not be doing adoptions today but the retail area will be open.  Hoping everyone has a safe and wonderful Christmas Eve.

Saturday at CARE

Snoopers, the severe macaw, was adopted today but will spend the holidays with us as there will be too much commotion at home - not fair to bring a new bird in during this busy time.  Two female budgies were also adopted today.  We will be open on Monday from 1-3 for any last minute gifting for your birdie friends.  I'm leaving early so I can go spend Christmas Eve with my family.  I hope everyone has a great Christmas.  We'll be open again with regular hours on Thursday.

Saturday's Events

I had to leave early today to attend a Christmas party, but this is what I know - Sprite the tiel went home; Buddy the Quaker went home; the two diamond doves went home; Teka, the red-lored amazon went home; and Pickles the Senegal went into foster care. We had two really nice tiels surrendered and they will go up for adoption soon. Sprite and Buddy were super nice birds who have been here too long so it is really nice that they got to go home for the holidays. Yesterday, Audrey the Maxi Pionus went into foster care as well. I have a feeling we will not be seeing Audrey back here - I think her foster parents will adopt her. We'll see if I'm right about that :) Have a great weekend and Go Pack!!

2 Adoptions and 1 Surrender Today

Two great adoptions today! Birdie, a little male Parrotlet, went to his forever home. One of our English parakeet hybrids also went home. Malakai, an Umbrella Cockatoo who has been with us for almost two years, has an adoption pending too. The Malakai app was a really nice surprise - we've talked about this before, but sometimes you just have to be patient and wait for the right home to come along. The final decision on Kai will be made early in the week. We had an 18 year old cockatiel surrendered - owner is going off to college and can't take him with. His name is Ed and he'll be up for adoption soon. Have a great Sunday everyone. Go Pack!!!

3 Surrenders Today - 1 Adoption

Picked up two birds from HAPPE Parrots today - a young Quaker and a 36 year old Red-Lored Amazon in bad shape - we've already had him/her to the vet. Her nails were double corkscrewed and her feet are so bad she can't bend her toes. We've seen this before and hopefully can give her some relief. Her mom was 93 and just couldn't take care of her anymore. Then BRATS transported another Quaker to
us - just 1.5 years old - from a humane society on the west side of the state. One of our volunteers adopted a bronze-winged pionus that was just surrendered on Thursday. So considering we are closed on Fridays, it was a very busy day today. Hopefully the adoptions will continue tomorrow :) Have a good evening everyone.

Another Good Saturday

Pretty slow day until about 3 and then all hell broke loose. We were prepared though :) Florinda, our 29 year old DYH Amazon went home today and Baby Lola, our 4 year old Goffin Cockatoo, was adopted and will go home next Saturday. We had several bags of donations come in - thank you soooo much - we really appreciate it. We also had a large Midwest cage donated in good condition, the size that can hold a larger amazon or mid-size cockatoo. We had one untame budgie surrendered. Thursday we had two untame female cockatiels and one female ringneck dove go home. All in all, a very good week for the birds at CARE.
