We understood two things…that sometimes we are not allowed to publicly say how we really feel about a person who has wronged us. And yet, the need for a bit of gentle revenge felt…OOOHHH…SO GOOD.

The second thing we understand is that predatory birds, like the avian ambassadors we care for, must eat.  Our Valentine’s Day fundraiser, Rat for a Rat, satisfied both needs – yours and ours.

We raised $789, enough to purchase 197 rats for the avian ambassadors!  Thank you!

You got the satisfaction of knowing that a hawk or owl has eaten well, in honor of someone you would rather forget. We got to insure that our food budget for the year stretches, while providing high quality meals for the raptors.

We’ve posted a video on our Facebook page. We’re working on sharing it here, but Google’s being balky right now.

There isn’t a much better win-win that we can think of.

The birds thank you! The rats? not so much.

This year’s goal was to raise $1,012 for the bird food fund, or the equivalent of 253 rats.
