15 Replies and 2016 Views How long have other new foster / adoptive carers had to wait?  2016  15 Started by  Steph_Hart Hi All! I am a newbie and I am excited so I am probably being impatient, I know its a long wait as this charity is run by volunteers, hence why I thought Id write a forum post rather than contacting my ACO again. I first became a member around September and had a phone call from a lovely lady about becoming a foster carer. In October ish time I went though the birds and fell for a pair of Cocktatoo's so I sent an application, it was only a couple of weeks I then received a call about my applic...

I missed the call and the lady left a message to say she would call back but hasn't as yet. I'm hoping I haven't been forgotten. If it makes it easier I will call her back if she would like to ring again and leave her number

I am checking my mail and messages every day, and I re- read 'my' bird's profile every evening! Is anyone else out there in the same position and going just a little coo-koo! :-) I'm so nervous because although I think she would have exactly the kind of lifestyle she needs with us... she is not local to us and would be the first parrot of our 'own' (have looked after freind's before).

5 Replies and 1118 Views Is distance a problem?  1118  5 Started by  yorkshire*clan I have recently filled in an application form for fostering, my husband and I went through the whole list reading all the descriptions before making the decision to apply for the one we feel best fitted our situation. After submitting the form I wondered though would the distance away from us preclude us from being considered (we are in North Yorkshire the bird is in Sussex) Looking through previous re homing list posts it would appear the bird has been on the list since the middle of last year...

I have always wanted to have a bird in the house but was concerned about their longevity, I worried too much about leaving them behind after I die. I figured that there must be older birds that need a good forever home and now I have found somewhere that might be able to match me with one! However, before I enter the ...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I have been a member on here for a while. Last year I applied to be a safehouse and quite a while ago now applied for a specific bird as well. I have heard absolutely nothing and now see that the bird I was interested in is in the later stages of rehoming. Does this mean I was not suitable, is anybody going to contact me I do appreciate that people are busy and that this is a charity but my main frustration is not being able to contact anyone regarding this. I was so looking forw...
