Hey there! I just wanted to take a moment to say that we visited a few weeks ago, and we love the World Parrot Refuge!

I did want to say that I mentioned you all on my blog:

Jim’s Blog

Anyway, we hope to visit Vancouver Island again, and the sanctuary will be on our list of spots to see again!

It is December already and Christmas shopping is in full swing.  Please add our Thrift Shop to your list of stops.  The store is bursting with beautiful and unique gifts.  Plus the bonus is that all the funds collected go towards the care of our birds.

For those “difficult to buy for” people, you might consider giving them a gift certificate to visit the Refuge, or enroll them in a Virtual Adoption.

Thank You for your support and a Very Merry Festive Season to one and all.


Somebody is creating lovely Christmas Cards for you.
