It’s the last day of Be Kind to Animals Month, but it’s also another very special day—World Parrot Day!
My picture book, Chloe the Unfeathered Parrot, is based on a true parrot named Chloe, and features the very real parrot rescue, The Parrot Sanctuary, based here in Toronto.
There are so many ways you can show your kindness to parrots, who may have experienced an inadvertent lack of kindness in their past. Chloe’s home wasn’t the right fit for her, so she was surrendered to The Parrot Sanctuary so they could find her flock—her perfect home.
At The Parrot Sanctuary, those who have experience with parrots and have done the proper research into their care can adopt a parrot, but there are other ways you can show your kindness.
You can volunteer at The Parrot Sanctuary. This is such a great way to help the parrots, and you also learn more about them in the process. You can also sponsor a parrot. This is a wonderful option if your home isn’t really suitable for adopting a parrot.
Check out the website of your local parrot rescue to see how you can get involved.
Purchase Chloe the Unfeathered Parrot for your children, your nieces and nephews, your grandchildren, and friends with kids. Help the children in your life develop their empathy for animals. And think about showing your support to a parrot rescue, like The Parrot Sanctuary. Partial proceeds of Chloe book sales go directly to The Parrot Sanctuary.
