On Saturday, March 3, 2012, Phoenix Landing hosted its 5th Annual Mardi Gras! This event is intended for potential adopters to meet a wide variety of adoptable birds and learn about different species. We had a range of parrots there from parakeets to cockatoos. There were parakeets, cockatiels, a Quaker, a Senegal, Conures, Lories, Meyers, Amazons and Cockatoos.
Meet some of the parrots looking for new adoptive homes:
The event was attended by lots of people and lots of birds went to new approved homes where we are hoping they will be a match and get adopted. In order for birds to move to new homes from this event, you must have already submitted your application, attended a required class and had a home visit done. For more information about this process, please visit our website at:
At each Phoenix Landing event we sell supplies and usually have a raffle to benefit the parrots of Phoenix Landing.
Phoenix Landing puts on 3 events like this one each year in the DC metro area. Upcoming adoption events:
- 9th Annual Luau, Saturday, July 14th in Springfield, VA
- 2nd Annual Fall Festival, Saturday, October 6th in Springfield, VA
