Thanks to people all over the world who thought

to reproduce this site
in their native languages. Proof that the
internet can be used for good.
I made a phone call to a Petland. The first kid to
answer the phone didn't
know anything about parrots, and put me through to
the stores "expert".

And I owe this fact to all the wonderful people
out there who thought enough
of my website to add a link from their page to mine. You
don't know how much
I appreciate this gesture, because as many of you know,
I only link to rescues.
The people who linked to my site were completely unselfish in
this website is about the saving of as many of these wonderful
possible, and nothing else. So to you all who took the
time and effort to help
me get the word out to the whole world, I say
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Who IS this guy anyway??
Jerry Waters founded Mytoos as a personal page
in 1997. In 1998, he was approached by people who loved
cockatoos and understood their plight... and believed in what Jerry
had to say. They helped him take Mytoos to the next level:
A real Dot-Com that with just hard work, became the number
one web site in the world for Cockatoo parrots. Jerry spent the
next 8 years teaching others about the problems and pitfalls of
Cockatoo ownership. In 2008, Jerry turned over the site to
his dedicated staff of volunteers to carry on the work. Mytoos
has never accepted any commercial sponsorship and never will.
This allows us to be forthright and completely honest in our opinions.
Jerry always said that freedom to speak the truth is what would
make Mytoos number one... not advertisements. We hold this
policy today and forever.

Petition against Parrot Mass Production
In reply to a questionnaire sent to vets across the country as to
or not unwanted parrots or euthanasia is a problem in their areas,
received the following letter from Dr. Todd Wolf
"Unfortunately this is a very common problem everywhere.
sometimes wonder if exotic birds should be kept as
pets at all
(a hard statement to make, since I am a bird
owner & my living is made from caring for them).
These are wild animals and many of them adapt
very poorly to life in captivity. This misadaptation manifests as a huge
array of behavioral problems. The public is never told about the potential
problems (noise, biting, aggression, self
mutilation, mess, etc.) when they are buying a bird.
are only told about the wonderful things (companionship,
talking, tricks, etc.). This is a big mistake, and leads to thousands
of impulse buys by unknowing, inexperienced people, who mean well,
soon find that this was not the pet for them.
Unfortunately it's the birds that suffer in the end, and
I'm afraid that the trend you are now
seeing is only the tip of the iceberg. Itís not going to be easy
to find homes for the thousands of unwanted
birds that will be flooding the shelters soon - not to mention that they
live a long time compared to dogs & cats"
