    Joined birdline as wanted to home a bird. I was led to believe that all who were interested are contacted. I have never been contacted yet now see Molly is in the latter stages of rehoming. Great for Molly but sad that I was not contacted.

    Did you officially apply for Molly? If so, you should have been contacted, as everyone that applies for a bird is contacted by the Rehoming Officer that is dealing with that bird. If you did apply (on-line) then I can only assume that there may be a glitch on the system. Did Molly have the red writing on ber 'blurb' when you applied? If so, that would mean that more applications for her wouldn't be accepted. Have you had your Welcome Pack yet from the Membership Man? So many questions...

    Yes I officially applied as no red writing. I joined and then applied to make sure I was a fully fledfed member. About a week ago I received an email with membership details. Guess just not meant to be but had no contact x

    Don't give up. I've emailed one of the Rehoming Team, to ask what's happened.

    Hello I am Debbie (a rehoming officer). Please do not worry. Your application has been received. There are many reasons why the red writing may have been added and it doesn't mean a home has been selected. All applicants will be contacted before a final decision is made. Sometimes so many applications are received that they are coming in faster than the rehoming team can contact them. Obviously if that continues then the poor bird will never get into it's new home. It could just be that there are enough applications at this stage that the rehoming officer is confident a good home can be found. You will be contacted x
