PARROT ABUSE AND HOARDING
VS. RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS

Parrot Abuse? Hoarding of Parrots? Why are Parrot Rescue Organizations being accused of these issues?
This catch-22 issue comes up with all animal rescue organizations. Good people, who only want to help animals that are homeless or in distress, are being turned on by fellow pet owners. Yet the minute a pet owner needs assistance when they can't keep their pet, just WHO will THOSE critical people contact when it is time to dump off THEIR own unwanted pet?
This website brings up the points of parrot abuse and hoarding from a Rescue person's perspective. People who post on Internet pet blog and forum sites continually accuse good hearted parrot Rescue people of "abuse" and "hoarding" merely because Rescues have several animals in their possession.
I would venture to guess THAT poster was probably turned down to adopt a parrot-cat-dog from a rescue organization, or the person is jealous of a certain rescue agency's success. How petty and sad is this...
A rescue is there to help YOU when YOU need to find an emergency home for YOUR unwanted pet. There WILL be several animals in our possession because that is what a Rescue person probably devotes their life to do!
Also discussed here are animal cruelty and the selfish and unnecessary choice of euthanasia to get rid of unwanted pets.
This is "the other side of the story" certain investigative agencies do not want you to know about.....
Someone has to congratulate that caring animal rescue person for spending 24 hrs/day, interruping their personal lives, to care for unwanted animals and attempting to re-home them with just the right person. This is not an easy task sometimes, but a LOT of pets now have happy homes thru a rescue person/organization's efforts, rather than that pet ending up on the other end of a needle! Euthanasia should not be a pet owner's first choice when one gets tired of their pet, or has to get rid of it for any reason.
Thank you to every rescue person willing to assist in locating new homes for unwanted pets.
Petfinder.com is a good place to start in locating a pet rescue organization to assist you.
