Help Jack and Other Lost Birds

Donation protected

Sadly, bird owners like myself don't have the same resources as those who lose a dog or a cat. Birds aren't typically turned in to animal shelters and there are a very limited number of veterinarians that even treat birds.

While people easily notice a stray dog or cat walking around their neighborhood, the same can't be said for birds. They're scared, tend to hide in trees and aren't as inclined to reach out to strangers for help or food.  

They don't know how to fend for themselves and as they develop a strong bond with their owners, they will continue to call out to them for help...making them vulnerable to become prey.   

One thing has become painfully obvious since I lost Jack, and that's the fact that owners of lost pet birds like myself don't know what to do -- or even how to begin to find their pet bird.  

The chances of finding a lost pet bird are greatest early on, while they are more than likely still within close proximity. But many of the recommended ways to recover a lost pet bird have become known to me only by chance, through the kind advice of strangers and having to do a lot of Internet research.

I'm not giving up hope on finding my baby Jack, but I would not wish what I've been going through on anyone. We love our pet birds just as you love your dog or cat. They are full of personality, make us laugh with their silly behavior and are like a member of our family. Losing them and not knowing what to do, or what happened to them, is devastating emotionally.

For our poor pet birds, they can easily become prey in the wild and starve or freeze to death.

Please help fund a website that provides the critical information and resources to help pets like Jack get back to their families...and also provides valuable details to those who find or see lost birds as to how to help them and find their "human."
