Hope for Parrots

Most of us think of dog, cat, or bunnies when we talk about rescue organizations. Trust me when I say that there isn't a species out there that isn't in need of these services. Take parrots for example. They can live to be 80, are expensive to maintain properly, and many people get them with no real idea of what their care entails. This can result in abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
So today I'd like to feature a group that does parrot rescue. Based in Ohio, Parrot Hope steps in to help these beautiful and intelligent birds. They rehabilitate ill and injured parrots, and work on training to increase the bird's chances to be placed in a new home. Check out their website for more information on the services they provide.
Kudos to Parrot Hope for providing assistance to our feathered friends.
