Before launching this site on April 1, 2011, we received an email on March 30, 2011 from a volunteer at 911 Parrot Alert offering to assist this site in helping a family locate their lost African Gray Parrot missing since 2006! The family said they will never give up their search and no doubt they mean it! 911 Parrot Alert was there to help; they cross-posted the ad to their lost and found bird database. Their website reads, “911 Parrot Alert is an international initiative dedicated to helping reunite Lost, Stolen and Found parrots & birds with their families.” They told us they have over 80,000 (yes 80,000) listings for lost and found birds, organized by location, type and date, with new entries daily. They let us know they are a free service staffed with volunteers with a passion for parrots. Please visit their site and offer your support.
We extend a large and heartfelt thank you to 911 Parrot Alert for helping this family and thousands of others. As always, we encourage those who have lost or found a pet to post on every online site available to you. Never stop with one posting on one site and don’t forget to post an ad or watch ads, in your local print media. We also encourage Animal Shelters, Rescues and animal lovers of every kind to partner with us and each other, to bring these lost pets home!
