Organized by: Jeremy Triesch
Hello, my name is Jeremy, and I love birds. So much, that I would like to spend my life working with them. I have a history working with birds, and smaller rescue groups. My little Dusky Conure is a rescue. My unique experience has also shown me faults and mistakes that can be made in rescuing, so that I will not make them myself. As any person who loves avians will tell you, birds are not easy pets! Many people who get them have no idea what they are getting into, or have no empathy to do it right. State animal shelters do their best when birds are surrendered, but birds have very specific social requirements that most mass animal shelters cant provide.
The goal of my shelter is to provide avian education to the community, and maintain strict adoption standards for our birds.
My plan is to gather funding for 2 years of support. I plan on starting small, with a shelter housing no more than 20 birds. Before the 2 years are up I plan on hunting for grants to maintain, and possibly grow. Gaining grants is not easy without the metrics.
I know that I am asking for a lot, but that is the reality of running an avian shelter for 2 years, and doing it right. The budget accounts for: rent, bills, electric, staffing, supplies, insurance, food, and vet care. If I cant gather all the funding needed, I will try for one years worth of funding.
