Parrot Wizard Holiday Drive

Comments (1)

By Michael Sazhin

Tuesday December 17th, 2013

It's that season of giving and my birds have it all. So I am looking to make some donations to some more needing parrot organizations. Please help me decide the best causes and why. Leave a comment stating which organization can use some Wizard supplies or money most this holiday season. Tell my why they may need some new perches, a harness, book, toy parts, or something else? The more comments or compelling reasons I get, the more donations I will be sending out so be sure to comment and share and get a lot of thought going around the parrots that need our help.

I will also match supply donations. If someone is interested in purchasing Parrot Wizard stuff to send to a rescue, contact me and we can arrange for Parrot Wizard supplies to be sent to the non-profit parrot organization of your choice with matching contribution.

Holiday Parrot Drive

And lastly, readers, please look through this list of comments (and the one on facebook) and find it in your hearts to help as well.

My personal recommendation is Ginger's Parrots, a 501c3 Senegal and Cockatiel rescue and rehabilitation center in Phoenix Arizona. You can make a holiday donation to Ginger's Parrots or better yet give a gift that keeps giving by sponsoring a parrot.

I would like to nominate the [url=]Greater Chicago Cage Bird Club's rescue[/url:eerjg0x2] for donations. Here's why: 1) They have a large group of birds and a small staff. The staff is comprised of entirely volunteer members. The shelter is also recently opened, so they probably still need a large variety of stuff. 2) It's one of only two true rescues that I could find anywhere[/b:eerjg0x2] in the area (the other one is in Northbrook, who I tried to rehome some budgies with and was not particularly happy with the response of "separate them and our fee to take them in is $400 per bird"). You would think that being that this is the Chicago area I'd find more rescues, but this is apparently not the case. Found plenty of breeders, though. 3) The club which the shelter is formed from has a vast [url=]variety of resources on bird care[/url:eerjg0x2]--including a link to your article about flighted parrots on their Facebook page! They truly care about their birds and already agree with some of your core viewpoints. I sincerely believe that they have both the need and the appreciation for some donations from the Parrot Wizard himself.
