Help Save Sherbert


My name is Sherbert and I am a baby Long billed Corella and I need your help.

Monday afternoon when heading down for a Christmas party, my Mum was driving her ute and accidentally hit a loose patch of gravel on the side of the road, loosing control of the car. Though she would like to think she is, she isnt a race car driver or professional drifter and though she tried to protect me and my brother Casper the Cockateil, the car ended up on its side in a gully on the side of the road.

By some miracle Mum and Casper walked away with just a couple of bruises, no lasting damage. Despite my cages protection, I unfortunately have an open fracture in my wing, which will potentially need an amputation. Mum will find the money, but any help anyone can provide would be muchly appreciated! We have already been to the vet twice for strapping, antibiotics and pain relief, but the likelyhood of needing an amputation is high as the prognosis of conservative treatment is not very good.

Mum has already saved me once when I was found on the side of the road as a dehydrated baby bird, severely underweight and close to death. She fed me hourly for 48hrs with an eye dropper and special food, so I could get my strength back then slowly started stretching my feeds. We had just begun weaning me off my baby food, much to my disgust when we had the accident. Now she is back feeding me every couple of hours to help maintain my weight and strength so I have the best chance to fight off any infection.

Mum has adamantly said she doesnt need any help, but with the house, christmas, the wedding next year and now having to buy a new car, I know her and dad are struggling.

Please help me help them by donating to my fund to save me even if I have to loose my wing!

Much love and thanks Sherbert
