This was posted on a Mollucan Cockatoo list Saturday. Hope it's OK to post here.
Hi, all. I know that you all are short of money but there is a temporary fiscal emergency which you could help ease. Lori Rutledge runs the Cockatoo Rescue and Rehab in WA state. It's the one where each species is housed together in large aviaries. There are 45-50 Moluccan sharing one outdoor space in harmony, even sharing the same food bowl. While not everybody agrees, I am very impressed by her approach, dedication and RESULTS, and have frequently visited and donated.
Recently she was diagnosed with diabetes and is putting off getting meds because it would jeopardize the phone and esp. the electricity to the birds' refrigerator and freezer. Things are pretty bad, but Lori does not like to ask for help. Each dollar would help.
If you can spare a few greenbacks, her mail address is POB 243, Silvana, WA 98287
Thank you very much. And please x-post!!I would be a HUGE tragedy if she
lost any of her birds due to a temporary financial set-back.
