Thank you for the invite~ Time is precious & far from my control~ June 10, 2006 7:48 AM
I appreciate being considered to be invited to such a great cause...I myself am extremely busy solitarily finding "FOREVER_HOMES" for many feathered ones. These exotic birds never asked to be confined in cages & environments not even closely relative to thier own preferred natural environment. My attempts are merely to be the 'voice' for the feathered ones whi have no choice...those who are tossed between home after home. Knowledge of especially the Cockatoo breeds....common sense tells you they have a life-line exceeding our own years ordinarily....many such 'Too's live up to 80years! Unfortunately, human-kind permits greed & selfishness to continually leave thousands of unwanted/displaced/tortured/etc....feathered ones~ subject to whatever tomorrow may bring...the suffering od feathered ones needs to STOP....these beautiful creatures of Nature, belong in thier natural environments...IMAGINE such a horrid life when humankind decides they no longer want to be bother with you, yet they keep you confined in a cage without ANY choices...

Yes we have lots of birds come to us in deplorable condition. As you can see in the album we have an umbrella cockatoo who has very few feathers. We have managed to get down feathers growing but the folicals have irreversible damage. There are severl other birds in my home alone. If you need any help or would like to join Pets Are Us Rescue please let me know.
