When I wanted to adopt a rescue bird I went to MAARS in Minnesota. I live in Wisconsin but read on the LAARA website (Madison Wisconsin) that you must agree as a matter of contract to not allow your bird to become flighted. I contacted them with questions about this policy and their adoption proceedures more than a half of a dozen times and never got a call back. I noticed that their website is down and find it impossible to reach anyone there. I am a proud new mom to a 14 year old T2, and have been fantastically happy with MAARS but I was curious what is happening with LAARA.. anyone know?
