|Captive Bird Rescue, Adoption, Sanctuary & Care Education||Gimme Shelter!|
Issue 5: October 2005
As many of you know, some conure species are surrendered to shelters because their guardians were not prepared to live with birds who are quite so vocal and full of energy; this also makes them difficult to place, as their well-developed egos demand a very special human.
In this regard, the red-headed conures are amongst the most challenging birds with whom MAARS works. The Placement Committee puts a lot of time and effort into finding appropriate homes for these birds and I am delighted to share Coco and Jake's success stories with you.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the upcoming Stayin' Alive Gala Benefit on Friday, October 21st! And I also encourage you to take advantage of our exclusive professional photo offer to get some great shots of your birds for your holiday cards.

Join the MAARS Flock Today…and Be the Wind Beneath Their Wings!
The MAARS Annual Membership Program gives you and our other loyal MAARS Supporting Flock Members the opportunity to help MAARS on an ongoing, sustaining basis. Your annual financial contribution will allow us to continue to provide and expand our valuable rescue, intake, care, veterinary and behavioral evaluation and treatment, adoption, sanctuary, outreach, and educational services for the displaced captive birds who we meet and the people whose lives they touch.
With so little, you can do so much to change the lives of birds like Jake and Coco. On average, it takes $1.00 per day to care for each MAARS bird. Every small donation makes a big difference, and big donations help even more. Your participation in the MAARS Annual Membership Program will help save and improve the lives of hundreds of parrots and other displaced captive birds.
Join MAARS today! Give them shelter! Ease their pain! Stop the cycle! And know that you made one corner of the world a better place for another living creature!
