Meet Buster the Cockatiel

 


Buster

Buster is one of the sweetest and charming cockatiels currently in our care, and he has a fondness for people and hanging out with some of our wonderful volunteers and staff. When Buster was placed into sanctuary with us, it was at his relinquisher’s request who wanted him to spend his days with a flock after Buster’s long time cockatiel companion passed away. His former caregiver continues to provide for his monthly care.

If you visit our Denver location, stop by to meet Buster. Spend a little time talking or singing to him, and hang out to give him some head skritches. He’ll adore it and we guarantee it will give you a smile in return.

Buster and Brenda

Thoughts for a Sunday morning.
With much bird and animal tragedy in recent news stories, we often feel helpless about what can we do. How can we help? If we care about animals' welfare, how does that label us? Clarity on the differences between Animal Welfare and Animal Rights is a good place to start. Understanding how we evaluate animals' care when we apply the Five Freedoms for TGF's flock is central to our approach to our birds' welfare. What do you think? Share your ideas and photos with us about what these concepts mean to you. webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20121010012427/http://www.fawc.org.uk/freedoms.htm
