ParrotCare classes for August

ParrotCare classes have begun at Valley Animal Hospital on 22nd St between Craycroft and Swan.
Classes start at 3pm and last for two hours. This is a 3 session class. Birds are welcome with a negative psittacosis test within the last 6 months and general well bird check up.
For information and to register for the class
call Barbara Bailey @ 520 531 8353
If you wish to attend, and have missed the first class, ( Sat August 11th) there is still time to register and do a make-up class. Please call Barbara for that also.


Here is a summary of what went on

TARA meeting was held August 11th. Some of the items covered were:
We will be creating TARA note cards for sale with pictures of TARA birds. The cards will be blank inside so that you can write a personal note . As soon as they are available, we will post it on our site.

Don’t forget Grey Bird Toys generous offer to donate a percentage of their August sales. Please click on the banner on the home page to go there. Several TARA birds have those toys and really like them…..

We will be contacting Sally Blanchard to see if she would like to participate again in our Annual SouthWest Regional Seminar to be hosted by TARA in February. As soon as we get confirmation from her, we will set the date. People wishing to attend need to register asap as there is limited seating for this event. As soon as we have confirmed time and place , the information for registration will be on the Seminars page.

There are 4 birds coming into TARA that will be up for fostering and adoption. 1 Grey 2 macaws 1 Indian Ring neck who would rather be an aviary bird than a pet.

Beyond Batik is having a Bali jewelry designer create a special TARA pin for us.

We have set a tentative date for our TARA swap meet to be held at the Tanque Verde Swap Meet. Saturday September 29. Start saving those articles for us to sell there. More info to follow.

We will be having a Fall TARA foster parent and adopters’ party where we can all get together and bring our TARA birds and have a good time. Place and time to also be announced.

Seed Crackers Bird Club of Mesa, AZ has offered us a free booth at their Bird Fair on Sept 23rd. We have chosen to accept their generous offer and will be there.

If you would like to receive a full newsletter and be notified of TARA news (meetings, etc) please contact Sharon Bloch : to be added to the TARA mailing list.

We also need to find more Fostercare people.

TARA is conducting a towel and toilet seat cover drive for the Humane Society, so bring any old towels ( or new!) to the meeting with you and we will get it to the HS. They really do appreciate our gifts.

We will also show the tape that KGUN 9 did of TARA on the news. Please RSVP to Barbara if you are planning to attend.
