Cosmo is a darling 3 year old Green-cheek Conure and
he's super ecstatic to be with his new family. (They think he's
pretty special too!)
Blaze is also enjoying life with his new family. Blaze was originally adopted from PEAC
10 years ago and returned to the foster flock when his
owners' health declined. We sincerely thank them for
giving him a loving home all those years!
Assistance for Sanctuary Parrots
PEAC's foster and adoption program focuses on pet quality parrots. However, we believe strongly in helping every parrot in need. When San Diego Department of Animal Services ("DAS") contacted us some weeks ago for placement of 4 macaws and 2 cockatoos that were part of a cruelty case earlier this year, we put on our thinking caps. Visiting these birds revealed they were not socialized and our foster program would not meet their needs. DAS seized these birds from a poor environment with the hope that they would have the opportunity to have a better life. DAS provided microchipping and avian veterinary exams and we sincerely thank them for this assistance. After numerous calls no local sanctuaries were able to accept the birds. PEAC was able to secure placement with an out of state sanctuary; but how to transport the birds over 1300 miles? The CEO of the parrot sanctuary shared he'd be in San Diego on Dec 13th and offered to drive all these birds to WA State. On Dec 13th DAS released the birds to PEAC with the understanding they would immediately be transferred to the care of the WA State sanctuary. To help defray transport costs and for the birds' on-going veterinary and daily care, PEAC made a donation of $1200 to the sanctuary and thanked them for providing a permanent home for these deserving birds.
Petco Foundation generously donated several large crates, a PEAC volunteer picked them up at multiple stores. On Dec 13th a PEAC volunteer met our sanctuary contact at DAS-Bonita, completed necessary DAS paperwork and loaded the birds for their journey north. They are now all settled into their new environment and enjoying the freedom to be birds without the stress of close human contact.
