We urgently need funding to purchase and prevent Henry going to a breeder. Henry is a hand reared Blue and Yellow Macaw, bonded with humans, who, like countless others, has out lasted his period of usefulness to his human family. His owner who hand raised, and had him for 5 years is no longer able to keep him, and has been offered cash by a breeder. If a blue-and-gold macaw remains healthy, it can more than 70
years. This is a bird that will be with you for a lifetime, and you
should prepare for this possibility, which may even include a trust or a
clause in your Will dedicated to the bird.We have week to purchase him. We realise it seems like a small amount, but we are looking after a number of rescues and simply do not have extra at this time.
We hope Henry will be one of many birds and pets we are able to rescue and rehabilitate in the future. We will be documenting his progress, and others, and their eventual free flights on our You Tube Channel. We will also interview various people and organisations, spread info on pet care, as well as information regarding the wild caught pet trade and breeding; and discuss ways that we can protect these feathered angels.
If you are unable to contribute financially, please consider making a pledge to only obtaining your pets from shelters, and do your bit to stop the pet trade abusing these sentient beings.
