Cooper decided that once a month she wants to feature those who rescue, shelter or are active in the conservation of her feathered friends. This month she would like to promote Best Friends Animal Society.

Best Friends (with locations in California, New York, Atlanta and Utah) operates pet adoption centers, spay/neuter clinics and no-kill initiatives as well as a No More Homeless Pets Network of animal rescue groups in every corner of the nation.

There are all sorts of animals available for adoption, including cats, dogs, horses, turtles, rabbits, pigs and, of course, birds. There are currently 83 birds available for adoption at the Kanab, Utah Sanctuary (including the cockatiels pictured above).

If you would like to help. you can donate, sponsor an animal or even help through shopping on Amazon Smile. The site also has stories of animals like Mitch the cockatiel, who found his forever home (along with 3 other cockatiels and 7 budgies).weight loss doctor phentermine
