1. Put ads in every newspaper you can, especially the Kansas City
Star, but also the smaller local papers.
2. Post signs in your neighborhood, and at schools, churches,
supermarkets, or wherever large numbers of people would see it.
3. Post an ad in the lost and found section of Craigslist.com
4. Post an ad on Facebook at 911ParrotAlert, and Kansas City, Missouri Lost & Found Paws. There are multiple other smaller groups and pages on Facebook for listing lost pets.
5. Contact all the veterinarians who see birds within 20 or 30 miles
of your home, as well as pet stores, feed stores, humane societies,
and animal control officers for your town and surrounding communities.
Contact us for phone numbers if you need them. The Lost Dog Registry
will take information on other species, so call them at 816-333-0020.
6. Place your bird's cage outside full of food and toys in case it is
in the area and can see it. If you have another bird, you can take it
out (as long as it is safely trimmed) to see if they will call to each
7. Make a tape of your voice and the sounds of other birds in the
house to play and hopefully attract your lost pet.
8. Don't give up hope as we know of birds that were found and returned
to their owners up to three weeks after they were lost.
Please let this serve as a reminder to everyone to think safety first
and never, never trust your bird when a door or window is open. Never
take your bird outside unless you know the wings have been recently
trimmed or know how to check them. We are always happy to show you
what to look for on your bird to know if it is safe to be outside.
