Congo and Conga’s story: Congo and Conga are part of a group of parrots who arrived from a woman who loves her birds and has kept them in flights, not little cages, all their lives. Now however, her health is not good and she has to move to a smaller home – an apartment we believe – so unfortunately her parrots cannot go with her. She loves the refuge and feels that there would be no better place anywhere for them. She doesn’t want them bred or just sold for money even though she is on a pension.
She is saddened to have to part with them, but her health has made it impossible for her to stay in her home of many years and where these birds enjoyed a free flight lifestyle.
As she could not bear the thought of them being caged, she has allowed them to come live here at the Refuge. Being on a pension, she is not in a financial position to support these birds, and so these new residents are looking for virtual adoptive parents.
Could you be one?
