Rebecca and Ori — September 2, 2022

Rebecca and Ori

~ Rebecca and Ori ~

Three years ago, Rebecca adopted blue and gold Macaw, Ori. Since then, they have become the best of friends and, through Ori’s social media pages, bring joy to everyone around them. 

In 2019, Rebecca heard of a Macaw named Ori looking for a new home. His first family loved him dearly but, unfortunately, due to health issues, they couldn’t keep him. As soon as Rebecca heard this, she jumped at the chance to adopt him and was thrilled when this was approved. 

It took some time for Rebecca to learn how best to care for Ori as he was much bigger than any bird she had owned. However, after a lot of work and patience, they began to trust one another. She learnt all she could about parrots in order to give her new feathered friend the best life she could. It took some time, but Rebecca is thankful to have gained Ori’s trust and friendship. 

Before adopting Ori, Rebecca sadly lost her heart bird, Rintja. This was devastating for Rebecca. She felt lost, heartbroken and struggled to face each day. Once Ori arrived in her life, little by little, she found happiness in each day and had a purpose. This has helped Rebecca hugely and allowed her to slowly heal. 

Rebecca and Ori love training. From flight training to trick training, having this time strengthens this bond and helps build their trust in each other. In doing this, they both have gained confidence in themselves and better understand one another. 

The love that Rebecca and Ori share is truly special. They have changed each other’s lives for the better and continue to fill every day with a bit of sunshine. 

Aaron and Aurora — June 6, 2022

Aaron and Aurora

~ Aaron and Aurora ~

Last year, Aaron met a 3-week-old barn owl named Aurora. It was love at first sight and they have been together ever since. 

In 2021, a friend of Aaron’s said they had a barn owl who was looking for a new home. The moment that he saw her, he fell instantly in love. It was a magical moment, aside from the bird poop she bestowed upon Aaron’s hand! However, he had no doubt in his mind that this sweet little owl had found her home and he named her Aurora. 

Having Aurora has impacted Aaron hugely. She has helped him to find meaning and purpose in life. Each day, Aurora motivates him to be the best he can be to give her the life she deserves. She has taught him patience and has provided her human with unconditional love and support. 

When Aaron wakes up in the morning, he looks forward to being greeted by Aurora’s sweet face. She shows her human that there’s so much good in the world. As well as this, she reminds Aaron to stop and appreciate the small things and is an absolute ray of sunshine.

Not only has Aurora impacted Aaron’s life, but also those around them. She often joins him at work and, no matter what, she brings smiles to everyone’s faces. When not at work, Aaron and Aurora love going to the park or on nature walks. This is time when they get to enjoy each other’s company, as well as allow Aurora to have a big fly around. 

The impact that Aurora has had on Aaron is amazing. They have both greatly improved one another’s life and continue to fill each day with love and happiness. Each day is made better simply because they have each other.
