I just received this from Dana Rocco, the shelter manager at the New Rochelle Humane Society. And if it doesn't make you go "Awwww," I don't know what to say to you.
Do you believe in fate? In June of this year, Gloria lost her beloved parrot in the Larchmont area. Today, a very thin and very tired parrot arrived, found in Dobbs Ferry area. Months ago, we had taken a lost bird report from Gloria, one sighting then nothing. Until ... within an hour of the parrot's arrival, Gloria arrived at the shelter on totally unrelated business. Conversation with staff led to talk of her beloved parrot she had never found. Staff remarked that we had just taken in a parrot, but from Dobbs Ferry area. Could it be? Upon seeing her old friend, Gloria dissolved into tears. A leg band confirmed that this really was Gloria's parrot. Fate or coincidence?
