HELLO FROM FINNEGAN AND LUCY
Hello Sky,
Our Mommy just found your page and it almost broke her heart to read your story. Mommy and Daddy belong to a very good bird club/rescue where they are very active. Our rescue does not even charge adoption fees, but does accept and loves to get donations from adoptive parronts. Every birdie we adopt out goes with a cage, food and toys. They have been vet visited are in good health or they aren't adopted out. Our president and his wife (our treasurer), and our v.p., along with a few of our members are all wonderful people who give tirelessly of their time and effort to educate people on parrot welfare. We do many educational events every year which is how we raise money for our rescue, along with a big bird fair once a year and monthly raffles at our meetings. Our club is totally donation funded and our annual dues are only $20/yr. for a family. Our club is called Rainbow Feathers Bird Club and Rescue. Our parronts have been active members for about 4 years now and wish they had known about it long before that.

Mommy and Daddy have a button awarding them the title of Failed Foster Parronts, since they ended up adopting their foster charge last year, a lutino Indian ringneck named Princess. They are well on their way to failing again this year. Last Sept. they went out on official club business to rescue a little Goffin's cockatoo with a broken leg. They had volunteered to foster her and are now totally in love with Dolly! Even though we live in MI, they take her to a very specialized, board certified avian vet in Ohio regularly for treatment.

They have rescued other birdies on their own, too. I (Lucy), and Daisy (may she rest in peace) are the only baby birds they have bought. However, they did buy my frother, Finnegan, even though he was a re-homed bird. I have been with Mommy and Daddy for almost 7 years and Finny for 5 yrs. They actually started out with a little budgie, Bobbie, that Daddy rescued 10 years ago. Sadly, she flew to the Rainbow Bridge only two yrs. after being rescued. But that's how they become "Bird People". After she died is when they bought Daisy. All the rest of the birdies that live or have lived with us have been rescues and re-homes. We currently have two other cockatiels, Larry (aged 20) and Pixie (age unknown, but young) who were rescued from different sources, but now have eyes only for each other and are the only two birdies who live together. There are currently 6 of us.

Two of our precious fids flew to the Bridge last year: Binky, our little caique,(only 5 yrs.old) and another Bobbie, our 17 yr. old cockatiel, who only loved my Daddy. We've loved and lost two other precious birdies over the years, Boo-Boo, a half-moon conure and Merlina, a little quaker, for a total of 6 at the Rainbow Bridge. Well, that's our story. Some other time I'll tell you about Dolly's rescue, but for now I think this blog is long enough...hope it all fits. Loads of Love and Many Hugs, Little Lucy, Finnegan and Birdm
