WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The appeal of a pet in a store and the reality of bringing one home, can be very different things.
People often chose pets because they're exotic, not understanding how much work goes into keeping them and for how long.
Jackie Schaible from Winston-Salem is cleaning up the mess from the haste and often bad decisions of others in creating The Parrot Guardian Foundation.

The foundation cares for many forms of wildlife, though they do specialize in birds.
