Re: Beware of "Rescue"

Can anyone recommend a good parrot rescue? I've repeatedly contacted by telephone and email two in my area and got no response. The third seems a little shady - perhaps a hoarding situation.

Seeing that you don't yet have enough posts to send a pm, I'll send one to them letting them know of this thread. Hang in there, okay?

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

Thanks, David. I actually already pm'd them at the time of the other thread you linked: Female Eclectus... Limited potential??? and Jen responded on that thread. Did you see her response, StacysVictim?

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

Yes, I was sure you did! That was why I was reminding her of the offers to help. There are some posters that are members of so many forums, they loose track of what, when, where!
I just hope she logs back in this time and realizes we are here to help create a win for all involved

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

Thank You for the write up. I want to say and let you know I mean it, first. There are some BAD APPLE's in humanity. Most of us are good people with good intentions. A few questions and the use of good sense, is certainly in order, to protect defenseless pets lives. ALL of us that offer to adopt a pet that needs re-homing are not heathens of the lower class though. I have noted finally that I should make at least 20 post's to be able to enclose contact data, so here's 1. SOME of us adopter's are like me (70 myself) and wish to adopt a bird (or even a pair) in their latter years; sooner than later. I want to go on record as I am not one of humanities BAD APPLE's; in that I don't intend to re-sale an adoptee or feed it to some other critter. I am not looking to scam anyone either. My sister in-law bought and has been refurbishing an old RR Depot and asked me to be it's caretaker. She furnished us with a 3 bedroom trailer, security cam's, a lawnmower and reduced rent for doing so. My wife and I have different taste's in our past time's and have converted the extra bedrooms to our use to keep them from interfering. I am in the process of quitting smoking and would not be a deficit to a birds' life and feel that the interaction would benefit it and I. We are retired and she is 10 years younger than I. Is there anything else that is needed to know? I can certainly afford a phone interview and 1 or 2 trips to facilitate an adoption. An extended period of time to get to that point isn't desirable or feasible. If I speak out of turn or expect too much; delete this account or just ask me not to come back. jh

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

I noticed, it was an older post. It's the general attitude that get's me and the date doesn't affect that. jh

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

To assure that I'm connecting your comments with the foundation of this Thread, I read it fully once again.
I'm unsure of which side of the discussion you are on, but I'm guessing that you wish to obtain a Parrot!?!? If so, the Thread provided a clear warning of the issues that are real in the market place.
Regarding its "general attitude." If is opens the eyes for someone looking to buy in a Market that is rip with "Let the Buyer Beware!" And, as a result, save them from a bad purchase its attitude is correct.

Prospective is central to one's opinion.

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

" PERSPECTIVE " IS central to any statement. Yes. What I was saying, is everyone isn't one of humanities " bad apples ". The idea of the original post was to let people know there are bad apples out there. Some may be running a scam that would "USE" your bird in an ill mannered way; be it a moneymaking scam, feeding it to other animals or in some way at least to the birds detriment. I agree there are those types to watch for and I agree that we each should do so. As for being scammed into buying without the bird in hand, NO I don't agree a person should be expected to do so. People should use some Common Sense and not be so absolutely trusting. At the same time it would be nice to seem to accept a person on an acceptable level and not accuse them as a bad apple. I know I'm not saying that right, just state that you want to exercise a little caution on the birds behalf. Pets have rights and feelings just as people do. It's only right to acknowledge that of either one. In scanning this site, I am sorry; I got my neck a bit up at some of the innuendo's. Most I am sure weren't even intended but there nonetheless. I am a simple fellow and quite literal, if I have offended, I apologize. I am open to adopting a bird or even a pair with their cage. I will travel to arrange the event if requested. I would like to sign a paper of transference and may even pay a small fee. I would like for the last owner to feel comfortable with releasing their pet to me. jh

Re: Beware of "Rescue"

I hope you find a parrot in need.im sure you will provide a good home. We had GCC and a senegal looking for homes but to long ago. But I rember you have some allergies and are looking for lower allergies parrots.
We just don't often have rehomes here. Lol as I say that I just did get a rehoming Quaker last month....
All the parrots listed on Craigslist I think if as rescues but they usually ask for some cash...
Anyway sometimes magic happens I wish you the best,!
