|Hi MAckenzie, v4u from SKY
Hello everyone, SKY here with today's "Spotlight on Caring." This week we will visit with Marley and her Mom Paula from Marley's Menagerie, a Entrelacs, Quebec, Parrot Rescue and Adoption center.
Sky: Marley, when did your Mom Paula first become interested in birds?
Marley: She started with a Budgie she snuck into her room at 12 years old. She bought it with babysitting money. It sorta grew from there.
Sky: How did your Mom Paula start taking in unwanted birds?
Marley: It began years ago as a youngster when friends and their parents would ask if she'd take in their unwanted pets. Budgies, a Canary and a Lovebird joined the flock.
Sky: Did your Mom keep all of them?
Marley: No, she'd keep them until she found good homes for them.
Sky: So, your Mom Paula sort of grew up into a bird rescuer?
Marley; Yes, when she got married and gained experience with birds, she & my dad realized there was a great need for a safe haven for unwanted, or abused birds.
Sky: Tell us about the early beginings of Marley's Menagerie?
Marley; Mom and a friend were talking one day about the growing problem of unwanted birds. Her friend suggested that Mom become a registered rescue.
SKY: What did she need to do to accomplish this?
Marley: In Quebec, you need to obtain a permit from the government. There are a number of specific requirements that MUST be met and maintained at all times. It is different here, then in the USA.
SKY: Is your rescue large?
Marley: No, Mom only takes in the unwanted birds that she knows she can care for herself. She doesn't want to have too many too care for properly. Sometimes she has to refer to other rescues.
SKY: Are you a rescued bird?
Marley: yes, Mom and a friend removed me from a Pet Store where I was poked and prodded at all the time.
SKY: What one thing do you want to tell every birdie about birds in general?
Marley: A bird is a forever investment, unlike a dog or cat, because we can out live our owners. Do your research, educate yourself. Mom says: " The birds are my life. I relate to them more then to most people."
Sky: Thank you Marley for sharing a little about yourself and Marley's Menagerie.
Remember Thursday at 7PM est we head off for a live blog trip to AFRICA!!
