New 16+ y.o. male Umbrella Cockatoo Breezy says ' What's for lunch?' as he scavenges through staff member Melissa's lunch bag.

Breezy came to us last week. A veterinarian at U of I, Champaign, IL, contacted us to see if we could take him ASAP so he wouldn't be euthanized. We said yes. We learned that Breezy's owner died and that she had 4 birds. Finding places for the birds to be safe was high priority because no provisions, no directive and no inclusion in her Last Will & Testament for her birds were made. 3 of the birds, species unknown, were placed in homes, whereabouts undisclosed. Breezy was driven to our facility a week ago from the far most eastern part of Indiana by the veterinarian's mother, her dog, and a driving buddy.

We are still getting to know Breezy and hope to find him a great home. He loves to dance and say ' go Breezy, go Breezy, it's your Birthday!'

The Gabriel FoundationHere is a picture of Breezy spending time outside of his cage. He was not handled very often in his previous homes, so we are working on building trust with him. One of his previous caretakers would handle him with oven mitts to protect herself.

Happy Annetta EvansWhat a handsome fellow!! Poor guy! He just lost his companions, and now he is forced to live in a strange place with a bunch of noisy new neighbors. He must be so frightened! I have been considering getting a playmate for Pretty Boy. He might be a good option, as he would be too big for Pretty Boy to beat up. lol

Kerry Forester DienerWow, so thankful that the vets office thought that there should be another alternative. I'll never understand people that don't realize that they own a wild animal.

Rockie thought it would be fun to close the flaps on the box that Rocco was in and then sit on the box. As you can see from the second picture, Rocco was not amused.
