January 17 would have been Betty White's 100th birthday, and the world is coming together to honour her with the #BettyWhiteChallenge.
As an avid animal advocate throughout her long life, the challenge asks that you donate to your favourite animal charity or rescue to celebrate Betty's birthday with the movement she deserves. We hope that you will consider donating to Parrot Partners Canada in her honour.
🦜 Our parrots thank you!
Displaced and neglected parrots need your help more than ever!
The primary focus of the funds raised through donations go towards the veterinary expenses required to bring in relinquished and rescued parrots.
The care and rehabilitation of a single parrot is approximately 2.5 times more costly than that of a single cat or dog. This is due to the fact parrots can carry transmittable diseases which cannot be vaccinated against, and can only be detected through diagnostic tests.
In comparison to dog and cat adoption centers, parrot adoption facilities require stringent air filtration and cleaning standards due to their delicate respiratory systems. Parrot adoption centers also require more square footage per animal. The Parrots also need to be interacted with and handled on a regular basis if they are to retain their hand tameness.
Why we do what we do!
Did you know?
Humane Societies will only accept the smallest of the companion parrots, leaving the care and rescue of medium to large sized parrots to specialized centers like Parrot Partners.
What should be understood is that specialized centers like us do not receive financial support form the Humane Society.
The parrots in our care rely totally on the kindness and generosity of donors and volunteers such as you!
