first blog draft-7th
Hello every Birdie, Sky here with a special blog for today. Once per week during my BOTM run I shall be doing a special SPOTLIGHT ON CARING blog" This week our featured Birdie is Sugar & her Mom Eileen.
Eileen & Sugar have been helping out the IOWA PARROT RESCUE.
When Did you first become involved nearly 2 years now. What I was most impressed with is how well Mike runs the rescue. It's all about the birds there and I know every penny I give them will go to the birds. He runs a tight ship and I am amazed at how much he can do with a limited budget. The budget is listed on the website for all to see.
They are also the only inspected and licensed rescue in Iowa.
He has gone all over the place to get birds who needed help. He has taken in birds from hoarders seizures and drug houses. He is also careful about who adopts the birds. He makes sure that the bird and the new parronts are compatable. He is upfront with the people who want to adopt about the birds temprement. Some of the birds can't be handled and anyone who adopts them has to understand that.
Because I know people who have adopted birds from him, I am comfortable knowing that my money is going to give all these birds a better chance at finding a forever home where they will be loved and cared for. I think that was the most important thing to me. I have heard radio and tv interviews that Mike has done and I am convinced he is an honorable human being and he really cares about the birds.
About abused birds in general~~It never occurred to me that anyone would hurt a bird. After Sugar and I joined BC I read about a bird named Braveheart. Some horrible, evil person had burned his feet off! It's been 3 years since I read that and to this day it brings tears to my eyes to think about the pain and suffering this bird went through. I checked him out on the internet and found that he had passed away in 2008, before I ever knew about the BC but I will never forget this bird. He was taken in by the Second Chance rescue. I think they are in the New York area. He knew love there and I know his story has touched many lives.
I try to forgive because I know that is what God expects of us, but when I read stories like Braveheart and you Sky it makes it very hard to be forgiving. I try to focus on the fact that they both got out of a bad situation and knew what it was liked to be loved!
I didn't mean to go on and on!! I hope this helps you! You are doing a great job with the campaign and I am enjoying hearing about the flock!
with my heart filled with love
Congratulations Ella Rose for your BOTD
