In the Omaha/ Bellevue and surrounding area we have a great support system.
People check our web site often and if we can help in anyway by putting the photos of lost, or stolen birds on our web site then that is what we will do.
We as bird lovers know how it would feel if something would happen to our family members/ birds. Lets work together to reunite lost, stolen and found birds with their rightful owners.
Here are just a few sites we think you should go to when reporting a lost, found or stolen bird.
www.craigslist.org (make use you put in your correct city)
www.freecycle.org (You have to become a member but anything to get your information out there. If you live in Omaha/Bellevue area I could do it for you. Just ask.)
If you report your bird lost or stolen please give as much information as possible. And if you do get your bird back please tell us so we can give everyone the good news.
We ask that you only report birds that would be located close to Western Iowa or Eastern Nebraska area. We can't put all the missing birds in the US on our website. But we can do our best for the Omaha/ Bellevue/Council Bluffs/ Lincoln and surrounding areas.
