It was 8am in the morning when Jose, one of our rescues most valuable caretakers, came to tell me about 12 parakeets that needed immediate rescue. Of course I agreed to help them. When the pictures came through, there where of a bunch of miserable looking parakeets crammed into a tiny dirty cage. I asked my other volunteer if she knew where we could get multiple cages to start separating them, so they would have more room. My thoughts where 3 big cages would work, my second thought, was where would we put them ? We really had no space, but we would make room just like we always did. My volunteer clearly felt the same way because within ten minutes of her leaving the room she came back to tell me that she had found a rescue to take all twelve birds! It was the Fine Feathered Friends Foundation . I was beyond happy; the Fine Feathered Friends Foundation is an extremely reputable rescue. Marie Callega the rescues director was our go between, Jose was our transporter. Marie and Jose where amazing and kind throughout the entire day of us arranging transport, and Marie accepted the surprise bonus lovebird with open arms that arrived with the parakeets. The parakeets and the surprise lovebird, are now safely with a foster. They are residing in a flight cage, which is a large clean cage where these birds can stretch their wings and fly for the first time in their lives. The original owner said they had been born in a that tiny filthy cage. Never again will these poor birds be crammed into small dirty cages. All the birds will be evaluated and put up for adoption through the Fine Feathered Friends Foundation .
