In Memory of Tracey...
Services for Tracey will be on Friday May 15th, Providence-Jones Funeral Home 604 Hwy. 95 North Elgin, TX 78621 4:00
May 10th, 2015 was a very sad day for all of us in the Texas Bird Community. On this day Tracey Harrington, a former adopter of a bird at the Haven, a supporter, a volunteer and most importantly a very dear friend lost her 2.5 year battle with cancer. Tracey was loved by all and will be dearly missed.
Before her passing she had asked her family to make sure that her friends, families and acquaintances knew how much she loved the Haven and wanted to make sure that we received memorials in her honor. She asked that no one give flowers to the family but instead to send all donations to Wings of Love Bird Haven, Inc. You can send your donations (check, money order or cashiers check) in memory of Tracey to:
PO box 182
Red Oak, Tx, 75154
You can also pay via paypal by going to www.paypal.com. Our ID is BirdHaven. Please make a note on both paypal and check that the donation is in memory of Tracey. Please feel free to send any notes or condolences to the family and we will make sure they receive them. We will make sure that the family gets a notice of who makes a donation. Remember that all donations are tax deductible.
Announcing our very first FEATHER FEST...
We are so excited about this event. We will not only have the things listed above but will have several other independent vendors here as well. As we get them signed on we will try to post what they are vending.
Please help us to spread the word about this awesome event. The funds we get from this event will be used to help us purchase new land and a new building. We just don't have enough room on our current property to take in the numbers of birds we need to. There are many that we are having to turn away for lack of space. Please help us spread the word about this event so that it is a HUGE success.
We are so excited that you are interested in adopting a bird from the Haven. We have several beautiful birds here that are just waiting for a new home. Please go HERE to fill out the PARROT INTEREST SURVEY- It is number 6 under Adoption Forms/Info. Once you have filled out the survey the board will review it. If you are eligible to adopt a bird from the Haven one of our board members will get back in touch with you to begin the next step in the process. We typically require each new adoptive home to complete a Parrot 101 Training Class as well as have a home visit prior to finalizing an adoption.
Parrot 101 classes will be held approximately once a month somewhere within the state of Texas. We will list the dates/times/locations on our Calendar each time we set up a new Parrot 101 Training Class.
