Please, do not buy parrots. I will let a few images speak for themselves:
Friday has a fear monster – a condition that causes his heart and blood to constantly race. He tries to rip his own heart out of his chest.
Friday is one of the ones you don’t forget.
He takes medicine to calm his condition. The injection (which he lets you know when he needs) gives him 30 minutes of being stoned, then 3 weeks of the munchies. Which relaxes him!
He is the clearest evidence of why cockatoos especially aren’t pets.
Rocco has beak and feather disease from his pet shop background. He was going to be euthanised, but the Sanctuary saved him, and now he lives in quarantine. Milk thistle has even helped him grow back a little fluff.
Ari didn’t appreciate me snapping photos of him and his mate.
I love little Monty!
Sweet, shy Lemon.
Bobo loved being harnessed and getting to romp in the grass.
This little girl has OCD.
You can find more photos from the Sanctuary here and here.
