Desperate for help
« on: April 08, 2017, 03:48:11 PM »

Hello everyone, my name is Karen and I am the owner of a 16 year old perfectly well adjusted, confident Grey. This is my last resort before turning down a 6 month  business contract in Europe.

My parrot carer friend was due to take care of Max for 6 months as she has done every time I have to work away, starting this Thursday but she has been taken very ill and it will be a while before she is well enough, in fact she is having to find a carer for her own birds. Now whilst i am sad for her, she will be OK and back on her feet in  a few months.

Does anyone on here know of any good fosterers, long term carers who i may be able to contact in regards to helping us short term?

My problem is that he's never really been boarded with anyone other than her for any length of time and we do not have the required vet certificates for the professional and expensive places, which rend to be only short term anyway.
I am due to leave the country on Thursday evening and If I cant find a plan B this weekend I am going to have to turn down the job on Monday morning.

Lots of friends have said, oh he can stay here but we all know that its not that easy and I need him to stay with someone who knows birds.

Please if anyone can think of anyone that may be able to help I would be so grateful.

Thank you
