Scout (a.k.a Scooter) says, “I see you”

While it may seem like not much is going on at Life Among the Greys, the opposite is true! One of my dreams has been to set up a Sanctuary for African Greys. I know there are a lot of very well known Rescues and Sanctuaries out there, one of which is only a few hours away from us. However, while most of the other organizations take in all species, generally speaking, of parrots, our focus will be solely on the African Grey. As the popularity of parrots as pets in the American household has increased, so has the number of birds that seek new homes after some years. Most people love their birds and strive to keep them for life. However, their are other behaviors, i.e. screaming, plucking, mess, etc. that come along with parrot ownership. Some owners will keep their birds for their lifetime, others may become ill, or need to move and are unable to take thier bird with them. Whatever, the reason, it is agony for most people to think about surrendering their bird let alone do it! As the avian population continues to grow, more and more birds will be in need of a place to call home- permanently.

We Incorporated in the State of Arizona in November of 2016, and just received our 501C3 status from the IRS a few weeks ago. We are also working on finding someone who can donate their time to assist with our website, and this Blog, Eventually you will see all merged together. I hope to also have a page for each of the birds featured on the blog, as well as those who are to come.

We have set up a GoFundMe page where you can donate-all donations are tax deductible! If you are unable to donate, please share on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Our birds appreciate any help you can offer!

It’s an exciting time and I cannot wait to see it grow! I am looking forward to sharing my flock of six African Greys and the many more that will join us at our Just Greys Sanctuary.
