Our 'Wish List' for 2011 contains the following items:
Brand New Parrot toys suitable for African grey to Macaw size: Our funds are primarily directed to veterinary and general care and maintenance of our rescued birds, including utility costs. Parrots toys are expensive items and we don't always have the luxury of splashing out hundreds of pounds to refurbish every bird and their area with an abundance of toys.
Some times we are offered second-hand toys, but most arrive covered in faeces and food residue with some metals that are toxic, such as brass and copper, thus most are unsuitable. Hence our request for brand new toys, uncontaminated and disease-free.
All at NLPR are truly grateful to anyone who can send in one or two toys per person.
