Dear Parrots magazine,

Regulation needed

Can anyone tell me if there is any legislation governing rescue centres? I have a friend who has been having all sorts of problems with the cockatoo she has had for over 22 years, but is now suffering through ill health. Because of this she can no longer look after her bird, She is partially disabled and doesn’t go out much.

She can’t walk very well, so I went with her to this place.
