ASPCA Needs to Acknowledge 3rd Most Popular Pet

To the ASPCA,

This is a plea to you to start promoting the adoption of the USA's 3rd most popular pet, the Psittaciformes. Your commercials are far reaching yet no mention of the thousands of homeless birds in the USA that are also awaiting in rescues for a home to love and understand them.

We are not talking about occassional surrenders, we are talking about the 3rd most popular pet whose homeless rate is the direct result of humans. Birds do not stray about and procreate but must be paired up and intentionally bred. So while the high rate of homeless birds could be governered by less breeding, the breeding community is not at all in agreement. So those of us who care about avian welfare implore you to make the general public as aware of homeless and unwanted birds as you do for dogs and cats.

1. You can cycle in your commercials of dogs and cats, pictures of macaws, cockatoos and parrots. Sarah McClachlan has never been cuddled until she has cuddled w/ a cockatoo or had a quaker purr in her ear.

2. You can help those of us concerned w/ avian welfare by disspelling the myth that all surrendered birds have "issues".

3. You can help by making a list of avian rescues available by state on your site.

We are a small group who truly care about avian welfare and we do not have the money to fight large groups such as the AFA that work tirelessly to quash the fact that the homeless Psittaciforme rate is climbing every day! However it would cost your organization very little to help educate the public. I will gladly send you photos of birds that you can use for free in your commercials and on your site, I will loan you a bird to use in a commercial.

Please we ask you to help us, help the birds by drawing public awareness to the nations 3rd most popular pet. Help us do something NOW, before the problem reaches that of dogs and cats and the birds must be euthanized. It's bad enough there are many substandard rescues out there that have 70 birds living IN their home and stacked in cages, must we wait for the birds to be euthanized before a national organization will acknowledge the issue?

Will you not help us take the nation's dirty little secrets that are often locked away in basements or closests and bring them into the light?
