Watch Joeys performance on ABC 6 Pick of the Litter
Joey is a 6 year old female Umbrella Cockatoo, she is sweet and LOVES to be held and touched! Actually she loves attention so much that if you dont give her enough "lovin" she becomes very vocal! Joey is considered to be a "needy girlfriend" by some of our staff members, so if you think you might be interested in her get ready to dish out the LOVE! Stop in and visit Joey at the shelter!

Many people do not realise that cats will eat with their paws, but as you can see from her photos, alot of them do.
Her display at the Science Fair drew alot of favorable discussion, comments, and attention from guests.
And she was awarded the blue "Superior" ribbon!
We're so proud of you Tara - great job!

Sasha is doing very well. She is enjoying her freedom to run through the house (steal what she can), explore the outdoors, chasing rabbits and birds. At first she was alittle wild - running like a nut case through the house - but I think it was all so new to her and she wasn't confined. Sasha has a mind of her own, and will do what she wants when she wants - but we are actively learning manners!
One of her favorite things to do is to sit and watch the birds, airplanes, and squirrels run around. She doesn't miss a thing! She can immediately spot when you have moved an item in the house to a different area. She will make it known too that she notices it! She is a delight to watch and can always make you laugh.
Sasha is spoiled with toys, love and attention. She has found a good home!
Here is a photo of her with her toy squirrel.
