Janelle Tait KovnerWe had a wonderful time! To interact with over 300 birds & see them responding so favorably to the kind words from volunteers, toys, good food and clean cages was a heartwarming joy. Once the routine is nailed down, caring for these lovely birds is anything but a chore. For those that were there in the beginning (Wendy Demeester Waas and her incredible hardworking team), it was anything but fun. For them, it was gut-wrenching, heartbreaking and rewarding beyond explanation to get the the birds into a safe environment. I'm honored to have the opportunity to help these birds. To see the puzzling expressions on the faces of birds that didn't know what carrots were was so sad and so wonderful at the same time! Thank you to the countless volunteers that have responded so eagerly to volunteering with this task. Please continue to message me on Facebook with your volunteer availability!2   ·  21 hours ago

These aren't eyeballs; they are blueberry ice cubes the birds get in their water when they go outside. Birds in captivity, despite many coming from warm climates generations ago, do not tolerate heat nearly as well as they do cold. They get to go outside in shaded areas for short periods, and this is one treat they enjoy on warm days. We do this in the winter, too, but with cranberries (inside, of course). It makes for fun foraging and donated blueberries make it almost free! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to donations from Whole Foods Market in Buckhead, one of our boarding families, and leftovers from a local produce sale, we have a grand total of 83 lbs of fresh foods chopped for the birds. Thank you Cassie, Rob, and Kelly!!!

If you enjoy cutting fruits and vegetables, please consider volunteering on Saturdays to do just that. Summers and fall are very busy in this area.

We are also in need of a second refrigerator to keep the local produce donations fresh or frozen. We can purchase one cheap if it works! ... See MoreSee Less

We cannot accept any donations of cages, etc for the Dekalb Animal Services hoarding case, as we are not involved in that case. I don't want to be responsible for storing and getting those items to them. I do not know their funding status (government funding vs. non-profit funding); donors need to ask where their money comes from and decide from there. I am not able to answer those questions, either.

It is very common for situations like this to result in an outpouring of support, but please do not forget rescues that take care of animals everyday need support every day, not just during emergencies. It isn't nearly as exciting and maybe not as rewarding to donate to the silent causes, but they are out there and they can only provide the best care of the animals they specialize in with donors' help. Whether the animal is a dog, a duck, or a parrot, ALL rely on your generosity. Most rescues DO NOT receive government funding, but many are tax-exempt and can provide a tax receipt. ALL appreciate your support, so find your favorite and lend a hand or kind word. It is good for the soul ;-) ... See MoreSee Less

Cathie DeverThis has to be so incredibly heartbreaking... having them so close to home and not being able to help. We only have a handful of big birds here, but we have many little birds. People throw away and destroy the lives of Parakeets, Cockatiels, and Conures just as easy as they wreck the big birds lives.3   ·  2 weeks ago

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncThere are people from very qualified parrot rescues on site, and in all honesty, I wouldn't want to be there helping because it would mean I would have to leave the birds here to do so. I kind of like this crazy cockatoo flock, so everything happens for a reason! ;-)1   ·  1 week ago
