The Detroit Animal Welfare Group in Michigan took in hundreds of budgies dropped off by the son of an animal hoarder. The birds had been kept in one room and several are in rough shape. The first day, 497 budgies were dropped off. An additional 339 budgies were dropped off the following day. The budgies are currently being quarantined and will be looked at by veterinarians. A few bird rescue groups have come forward to assist in caring for the budgies. You can read more here.
If you are in the area and looking to adopt a budgie, please keep these little ones in mind. If you would like to contribute to their care (food/vet costs) you can do so by clicking these links:

Sandy “The Sweetheart”
Sandy came to Farm Sanctuary from an evacuation site during the devastating 2016 Sand Fire in California. While the young turkey’s guardian had saved her the year before from Thanksgiving slaughter, Sandy still needed help. She had a painful foot infection, along with feather loss and wounds from the males in her enclosure. To give Sandy the best chance at a healthy life, the guardian relinquished her to Farm Sanctuary. Once in our care, Sandy made a full recovery and is now a bright, affectionate member of her flock.
