The Melbourne Bird Expo and Show
Sunday, November 4th M.A.R.S. joined in with numerous others to attend the local Bird Expo. So many people stopped by our table to say hi, and meet and greet the two birds we chose to take along for the event. Cuddles and Stella were the lucky avians who got to come along, and knowing birds I should know by now that two groups of avians should always accompany us to events. After about three hours, we should bring in the next group.
It was so fun to see past volunteers of Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary, and some of our more recent adopters in attendence.
We look forward to being invited to attend these events in the future and will get more organized, and bring more birds to meet and greet. Thank-you to all, especially to Jane who joined in on the fun.
Maybe we even recruited a few new volunteers. Keep you fingers crossed.
Hours of operation for week of Nov. 5th
I have been posting our updated weekly hours of operation on Facebook regularly, and realized that our feed goes to all those who sign up for our e-mail updates. So this is actually where I should post all info. Closed Monday 5th, Open Wed.7th and as of right now Open Sat. the 10th. Hopefully we can get back to a normal schedule in the near future.
Parrot Adoption in Florida and M.A.R.S.
Our Parrot Rescue M.A.R.S. located in Florida,Â has achieved one very important goal. GettingÂ the word out that Melbourne Avian Rescue SanctuaryÂ is the number one placeÂ to consider when faced with the need toÂ surrender yourÂ exotic bird.
However,Â we have yet toÂ achieved our primary goal as the number one adoption destination in the state of Florida.Â WeÂ have arrangedÂ great rates at a local B&B Windemere Inn, for those of you visiting from out of the area.
Our designated outback open area for meeting and greeting the birds available for adoption here at M.A.R.S., is literally an outside one stop adoption shop. You can interact with most all our adoptable exotic birds inÂ comfortable andÂ pleasant surroundings. We advise you to allow some timeÂ to get to know them. The choices you have will amaze you, so do not be in a rush.
As always, we ask that you check our open and available days asÂ they are subject to weather conditions and volunteer availability. Updates are posted on our Florida Parrot Rescue M.A.R.S. Facebook page almost on a daily basis.
M.A.R.S.Â hasÂ attempted to keep Pet Finder and Adopt A Pet current, but finds it impossible to do so.Â Â Meeting the Macaws, Cockatoos, Amazons, Quakers, and numerous other parrots availableÂ for adoption, is crucial to making a good match.Â Â Remember,Â M.A.R.S. is a no fault bird rescue sanctuary. If at first you don’t succeed with your choice of exotic try again. But make the decision to adopt.
IfÂ you need to schedule an appointment, contact Lu by direct e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
M.A.R.S.’ future and the future of all the exoticÂ birdsÂ that come intoÂ this rescueÂ is inÂ all of ourÂ hands.
