How we are Supporting Parrot Rescue & Rehoming Centres
We are flying to the aid of four parrot rescue and rehoming centres hit by the coronavirus. We have donated more than a tonne of our Parrot Lean & Fit and Low Sunflower for Large Parrots blends to Birdline Parrot Rescue, Problem Parrots, All Star Parrots, and Safe Haven Refuge.
Maddy Johnston, our Marketing and Media Manager, said it is incredibly important to support bird rescue charities and sanctuaries during the COVID-19 crisis because the vital work they do had to continue.
“As a company, we couldn’t just stand by and watch that happen so we decided to donate food to some of the centres we know, to do our bit in helping them continue providing care to their parrots.”
Our staff even delivered the food free of charge to the charities, while ensuring they stuck to government guidelines over social distancing.
We are currently looking into making further donations as the ongoing crisis continues.
Steve Jones, Welfare Director at Problem Parrots, said: “It’s great to see the company recognising the challenges rescue charities like Problem Parrots are facing at this challenging time. By donating this feed, Johnston & Jeff are helping us to continue doing what we always strive to do – provide the best possible care to the parrots we look after. It is very much appreciated.”
As well as helping rescue centres to continue caring for parrots, we have been helping bird fans young and old keep entertained throughout lockdown.
The company has produced free downloadable wall charts to help people identify the birds in their gardens, and have produced a photo casebook of origami birds for people to attempt and line drawings for children (and adults!) to colour in – just click here.
