Available for adoption: BRIDGETTE – This beautiful, loving Quaker Parrot is named Bridgette. She loves to be out of her cage more than in, and she LOVES to explore around the house and the cage – with your permission of course. She gets a little nervous when people just stand outside her cage, but the minute you open the door and walk away she will come right out and cant wait to see you! Bridgette loves to sit up top of your shoulder and help you with chores – she supervises and makes her little clicking/kissing sounds – Too sweet! She is so sweet and definitely enjoys some cuddle-time; she likes to hold onto your shirt while she is nestled into your chest. She stays well groomed and keeps her feathers always looking beautiful – she knows she’s a pretty bird, that’s for sure! She is not a picky eater and will try eating just about anything. Bridgette is ready for lots of love and to find her forever home and you could be the lucky one to do so!
The Florida Parrot Rescue quarterly newsletter is finally ready for you guys! Complete with lots of great new ideas for healthy foods for your fids! I hope you enjoy it!
We have some sad news to report. Grandpa, the 65+ year old permanent foster Blue and Gold Macaw who was being fostered by Lorry & Chris, passed over the Rainbow bridge this past Monday.
He was very well loved during his time in the rescue and was a truly a special soul that will be missed by everyone who met him.
Let’s hope he is now pain free and flying with all of the other sweet angels that went before him.
He may have been a foster bird, but in our hearts he was ours and will be remembered fondly and for the rest of our lives.
We had a simply AMAZING time at the South FL Pet Expo. We would like to thank the whole Expo team for working so hard on creating such a fun and successful event.
We already booked our booth for next year and are counting the days!
Also a big shout out to our bird Ambassadors
Georgia (Moluccan), Jumanji (Umbrella), Cookie (Blue and Gold) and Chipped (Mustache Parakeet)
Thanks so much to Miranda Rose Hipps for going that extra mile for the birds. She has honestly traveled from one end of FL to the other bringing birds to their new homes.
Pictured: Miranda and Kairi (Blue and Gold). Miranda transported Kairi from the Panhandle down to Port Charlotte.
We could not do this without the dedication of our volunteers and Miranda is a shining example!
Florida Parrot Rescue is currently looking for fosters all over the state of FL.
So if you have time, space and dedication to helping a special bird in need, please consider fostering.
The process is easy! All you need to do is fill out an application. We will then do a vet reference check and home visit.
We are willing to work with new bird owners and this is also a wonderful way to get the Avian experience you have always wanted.
Come on! You know you want to!
Special thanks to Robert Seymour for creating this wonderful poster for us.
We proudly display it at many events!
Tell him FPR sent ya!
We would like to thank everyone at the Seminole County Animal Services for inviting us to the 9th Annual Seminole County Adopt-A-Thon. We all had a wonderful time and met some really wonderful people and did a lot of networking.
So many people stopped by our booth. We got to meet lots of potential fosters and adoptive families.
It was a huge success and we can’t wait until next year!
Florida Parrot Rescue would also like to take a moment and thank some other wonderful people.
Robert Seymour or BirdsBreath and Adopt-A- Poody for the wonderful Signs on the front of our booth and the Cat Clinic and Hospital in Pittsburgh PA who donated a booth to us for the South FL Pet Expo on March 24th.
Hope to see you there!
Sunny came into rescue on the evening of 2-27-2012 on emergency. Sunny had a HUGE growth on one side of his neck that keeps him from being able to turn his head in that direction, he has to turn his whole body. It also complicates his eating as he has a hard time bending over. The issue is an injured air sac and the owner stated that Sunny had this condition for as long as she could remember, she has owned him for 8 years. The injury is no doubt painful and uncomfortable for him and we had been told he was aggressive and a huge screamer. Fortunately, he has been nothing but nice with his fosters and he steps up easily, although it seems he prefers men.
Sunny went to our regular veterinarian on 2-29-2012 where he was given a full examination and 200 ml of air were drained from the bulging air sac, however, it begin to fill up again quickly. It was determined that he will require surgery to repair the injury.
He had surgery, on Thursday, 3/9 at the Blue Pearl Veterinary Services in Tampa with Dr. Teresa Lightfoot and Dr. Rubenstein.
Sunny is recovering and doing quite well. He will be going home with his foster mom on Friday.
Florida Parrot Rescue would like to thank everyone who donated to Sunny’s surgery and all those who support us. We could not do this without you!
