Keeping Parrots as “Pets”

HAVING spent 40 years in the music industry, Sylvia Raye would be the first to tell you she did not expect to have her first hit record at the age of 68.

And the Sydney entertainer is as surprised as anyone that a couple of songs she recorded to grant her husband’s dying wish would result in what broadcaster Alan Jones called “an avalanche of responses”.

All animals deserve a life free from abuse. Whether a beloved family pet, or a nameless farm animal – all cherish joy, and fear violence. We are a member society of Animals Australia and we strive to improve the lives of animals.
Catholic Concern for Animals is here to help Catholics, in particular, to realise this vocation. Catholic Concern for Animals works through publications, especially its journal The Ark, research into church teaching and tradition, prayer and liturgy, and personal witness. From a small group of laypeople, clergy and religious meeting for the first time in London in 1929, Catholic Concern for Animals has grown into a world-wide non-profit organisation with branches in the USA, Australia and Cameroon.

Ban Birds Sales & Breeding in Australia from Paris Yves Read on Vimeo.

Paris Yves Read from Melbourne, Australia has been campaigning to Ban Bird breeding and bird selling in Australia. This bird industry abuses and disregards the emotions and welfare of birds. There are thousands of backyard and commercial bird mills/farms all over Australia- Time that the breeders/sellers stopped! Time that the Australian State Governments introduced laws to protect all Birds!

Birds have parallet capacities to people related to mental functions:
  • Human-bird-brain-crop-thinking & cognition
  • feelings
  • emotions
  • equal & lasting relationships
  • dreams and aspirations
