Special Needs African Grey Parrot Sponsorships: $540/yr. ($45 / mo.)
Moses is here on lifetime of Care. He has really taken to the aviary, but he still craves human interaction and everyone here has no problem giving him all of the love and attention he can stand. :-)
Bonnie came from a breeder in Chicago. She is a wild caught parrot. She only has one eye due to an infection we fought here for months that we couldn't get under control with her medications. Our veterinarians operated and removed the bad eye. She still flies like always and she has adapted. She is a beautiful girl and she is a fighter.
From a breeding situation in southern Virginia. A sweet little guy, leery of humans of course. Groucho is a playful little guy who mimics police sirens perfectly!!
Freddy was once a pet. He was relinquished to a breeder where he was forced to breed for many years before he found his way here to Project Perry. Freddy is a happy go lucky little guy who loves to interact with people. He loves to do the "Freddy Dance".
Topaz is a wild caught ex breeder Timneh Grey. He is very fearful of humans. His mate was Garnet. After being retired by a breeder, he was in Wyoming until Project Perry was contacted to take him and his mate in, as they were not "cage birds" and extremely fearful. Darling Garnet has passed away as of May 2015. She is very missed.
Scrappy came from a dark and dusty basement in northwestern Virginia. She was captured in the wild, transported out of Africa to the United States, and became a breeder bird for the pet trade for many years before being "retired" from her job as a slave to human greed. She's an old gal, but she is a strong willed and beautiful lady.
Simon is terrified of everything. Mostly because his sight is horrible. In new places... it is hard for him to figure out where everything is. It's hard for him to adjust, but he is now in the aviary, and he is doing AMAZING!!
