My volunteer work, photographing animals looking for their forever families, takes me to a place close to my heart, birds. I grew up with small ones, budgies. Then, my beloved Sam, a peach faced lovebird. He was such a sweetie. Always happy to have his human companions around! He lived to be about 16 years old! I still miss him.
Families that commit to large parrots should know that those birds can live up to 80 years! What a treat! But for those that the bird out lives their human or the human isn’t prepared to care for a large bird, it can be quite overwhelming. Luckily, the wonderful people of Parrot Hope Rescue, want to not only rehibilitate and adopt out wonderful birds but want to educate you too. These are true bird people. They can help you decide which parrot is right for your family. They have some beauties too, looking for a home. Please enjoy these images of adoptable parrots and share with your friends. Do not let these birds go unnoticed. All they want is for YOU to say, “hello!”

I want to share with you some loving dogs looking for their forever homes. These are mostly puppy mill rescues that have lived a hard life and now just want a lap to curl up on and someone to love them. Won’t you consider one of these beautiful dogs? The angels at Marilyn’s Voice Rescue would love to hear from you! Their photo shoot was held at the stunning, Squire’s Castle in Willoughby Hills OH. Only the best for these pups!
