Happy New Year to all who follow MARS, our Florida based parrot rescue.
Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary, EIN 80-0161378 was founded in 2008. Now entering into our 17th year, and just as determined as ever to better the lives of parrots in captivity.
The purpose of our almost annual fill the toy tree for Christmas drive is for the enrichment of the parrots who come through our doors. Teaching them to play and not rely solely on humans for all their entertainments is critical to having well adjusted birds as pets. This is true I am sure you would agree for all pets. Although, we humans can be most entertaining to these amazing feathered ones, the importance of self play can never be stressed enough.
With all that said, very happy to share that our drive was relatively successful. We were fortunate to order, with so many of you donating dollars, pounds of toys for the parrots and even the ones we call the termites have happy busy beaks. Remember we order wholesale so lots more toys for the dollars donated.
Again, thank you to all of you and please remember us all year long. Rescue is and always will be an ongoing commitment made possible with your continued generosity. Thank you for reading.
