As your all aware – on March 15th Birdline suffered a tragic house that took the lives of 27 parrots and most of our home. The loss of our friends and companions is beyond words and while we are still grieving their loss, we realize we have no choice but to carry on.
There are still so many out there waiting for us and who need our help, and to Honor those we have lost – we will do it for them.
For those who have emailed, called, texted, donated and sent cards in the mail – we THANK YOU – your kindness and love has helped us to keep our strength during this difficult time and we appreciate your support and compassion.
On Tues April 29th, we had a large group of parrots surrendered to Birdline – we had been working with this individual since January and called this grouping “CF-27” as there were 27 parrots…..
A day before we traveled to get them, 3 more were added and we ended up bringing home 30 parrots!!!
We are happy to say that we found some amazing foster families for almost ALL the birds and they are all currently having their health exams/bloodwork done.
After a minimum 30 day quarantine period – they will be placed on our website for adoption with their ages/biographies and photos.
We are still looking for some cages as well – if you have one in good shape (no rust, no missing pieces)please email us a photo of the cage and price.
At this time, bloodwork and necropsy results show NO signs of infectious disease. The predominant issues are malnutrition and dehydration – being underweight and a lack of sociability – in time, this will change 🙂
We are still not back in our home as the demo is just wrapping up on the house – it will be months before we are able to return.
Any further intakes will be done on a case to case basis – we will need foster homes in place before any further birds can come in. If you are interested in becoming a foster family – please visit the guardianship page and fill out an online application.
If you require any further information, please feel free to contact us at anytime firstname.lastname@example.org
