Further details provided by LifeLine:
On July 13 DeKalb County Animal Services Enforcement division received a tip from an anonymous caller involving over 300 exotic birds in a private home and in a situation of abuse and neglect. After investigating and obtaining a search warrant, Enforcement notified LifeLine at DCAS. LifeLine accompanied Enforcement and DeKalb County Police to the home during the raid. Firefighters were also called in due to the toxic levels of ammonia. Tragically, over 30 birds were found dead. LifeLine staff were able to remove all of the birds safely in one day. The next step in the birds’ journey is for each to undergo an evaluation to determine which ones will not be suitable for adoption due to behavioral or health issues. Those deemed unadoptable will eventually be sent to live at bird sanctuaries. Birds with no health or behavioral issues will go to avian rescue partners, where they will continue their rehabilitation. Once they are completely rehabilitated, they will be put up for adoption. LifeLine is accepting donations and volunteers to assist with the continued care of their new feathered friends.
