ResQte Of The Week 2: A Post 4 Our Fine Feathered Friends

“Hey C.O., I wanted to point your attention to B2L House, in Sunnyvale, CA. It’s run by a lovely woman named Friederike. She takes in special need birds, but mostly houses Cockatiels.

She took in my Cockatiel named Cloud (below) when her medical bills hit $5,000.” -Jonathan H.
