Thank you all for donating, attending or passing the word about the MSPCA – Walk For Animals.
It was an awesome day, and I ran into so many bird people, it was great talking to so many folks. I want to send a big Thank You to the Captains of Team SOAR Birds and Team SOAR Birds Boston.
This was the first year for SOAR (Special Owners of Adopted/Rescued) Birds had a team(s) and people walk for birds in both events.
Together, SOARBirds Team raised $2386.75.. THIS IS FANTASTIC!
SOAR Birds Team Captain: Paige. She was at the walk for the MSPCA – Nevins Farm. She showed her bird love with a peacock feather beret.
SOAR Birds Team Captain: Diana. She was at the walk for the MSPCA – Boston. She had a great time and met so many people.
I would also like to thank my co-conspirator, Melissa, who brought Theoden, Cockatoo, to the Walk for Animals, and was huge hit!
We are not done, yet…
Just because the Walk for Animals is over, doesn’t mean our cause is completed. There are still a lot of birds looking to be adopted! In addition, the MSPCA (and other bird rescues) need bird accessories (toys, adjustable perches, dishes), food (treats, millet, dehydrated fruit (unsulphured)), and monetary donations.
In January 2014, Adopt a Pet Bird Month starts at many different rescue U.S. wide. This will be the 4th Year that Exotic Bird Advocate, Sheila Blanchette, has been working at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm, to help raise awareness and education about Domestic/Exotic Birds. Sheila is renaming the event “Festival of Flight”; she believes we should be celebrating the honor of having a great bird and what love it brings to all of us in the bird network.
We Want to Hear from you…
Sheila is looking for topics, ideas, fun things to do that month to draw more attention about the care of a domestic and exotic birds.
If you have any thoughts or ideas, to help bring donations (monetary, Raffle items, Gift Cards, and bird items), please send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is also looking for volunteers to help out any weekend to work with Sheila to tell people how wonderful exotic birds are, as well as stories about his/her adopted bird.
We need to get the word out there, so any help is appreciated.
If you would like to sign up for our SOAR Birds newsletter, please drop us a line at email@example.com and we’d be happy to add you to the distribution list.
We would also love to hear your successful rescue bird adoption stories. Please send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org, and don’t forget to include a photo or two! We’d love to feature your bird, or birds, on our website and FaceBook page!
We look forward to hearing from you!
