Thanks for the info, I think that should do it for now  :) I'll let you know if they want any other info or if they want to talk to you directly on Monday after I give the station a call. I'm crossing my fingers from afar that that they will do a story!

We will all be saying an extra special prayer that some one hears all the news you are spreading with this story and some aide to come to the rescue!  I wonder how many other rescues are out there and basically run by one woman who has devoted everything she has and is to these parrots!

What a wonderful thing it would be if this letter reached so many people that SCBR never had to worry about funding again! I'm going to try my best to make that happen!

Interesting thought Mar, I'm sure there must be other rescues out there just like SCBR run in the same way. No rescue should ever have to worry about where the next donation is going to come from.

Just a quick update before I have to go to class for the day. I contacted PetCo last night and they wrote me back. Here is what they said:
"Thank you for contacting PETCO Customer Relation regarding your store inquiry.  Jennifer what a beautiful story.  You can call the PETCO Foundation directly at 626-287-0952 and if they can assist they would be happy to."

I will be calling the PetCo Foundation later this afternoon after I get home, I'm also calling the radio station during my break between classes. I'll give an update on how everything goes when I get home. I'll be crossing my fingers!

Just a quick update while I'm between classes. I called PetCo and I have to wait until May 3rd to apply for help for SCBR, they are in a transition phase and will be totally online for applications then. I called the radio station Joey was busy as he is suspose to call me back sometime today. If he doesn't call back I'll be calling him again tomorrow. I don't know what time I'll get back to the comp to update later today. I broke a tooth this weekend so I have a denstist appointment at 2 after class, the tooth needs to be pulled, so I don't know how long it will take, I also have to run to the diagnostic place and get a copy of my last back x-ray report for an appointment tomorrow so with any luck I'll make it home before the sun starts to go down....lol.
