Parrot Rescue

I grew up with exotic birds, as far back as I can remember we had parrots and parrakeets in our house. My mother was bird mad. I've had birds myself but none for the last few years. Whilst in a pet store I saw a poster for Birdline Parrot Rescue, and I was intrigued. I thought about it for a while and then decided to get involved. The other day I had the "Safe House" check and all went well. A safe house is where birds are put immediately after being rescued, the length of their stay can vary. So now I'm just waiting for my first rescue bird, it's quite exciting!

Franki Has Got Her Zest for Life Back!

I don't know if you remember my post in January about the dog Franki that was hours from being put to sleep at a shelter in Miami. She was skin and bone and had nigh on given up, you can read the post here  She was rescued at the last minute by Extreme Rescue Inc an organization that, as the name suggests, takes dogs that most people have given up on.

So, two and a half months later in April here's Franki! Hardly recognisable, healthy, full of life and now ready for her forever home. Apparently she is a great, loving girl so I'm sure that it won't be long until she finds somewhere where she will get the love she deserves.

Well done Extreme Rescue Inc, thank heavens there are people like you out there that give dogs such as Franki a second chance!
