Re: Question about a rescue

The sad reality is that Avian Rescues /Rehomers have to be able to say 'NO' and limit themselves to only the number of Parrots that they can handle with the resources and support staff that they have on-hand.

When that ever-difficult number to define is past, the organization becomes trapped in a downward spin and at some point a well-meaning individual is faced with the reality of more Parrots that can be properly supported and fed. And, what started-out as a well run organization becomes the center of the legal system and media attention.

At this point, if you are going to use a rescue /rehomer, you must commit to an on-site inspection. The center should not have more Parrots than that organization can well care for and find new homes.
