The international animal welfare community asks that all possible charges against Miami Valley Bird Club Rescue, Dr Brauer, and Jim Tinnell be dropped as an amicable resolution to this situation. Dr Brauer, the employees of Dayton Vet Clinic, and MVBCR are heroes to the international animal welfare community. We ask that there be resolution to the Troy Parrots case which should have resulted in charges being pressed against Mr Ratcliff, an obvious case of animal cruelty according to Ohio Statutes 959.01 and 959.13(A)(1)(2). The Miami Valley Bird Club and Rescue initiated a rescue under the supervision of Sharon Karns and transferred the ten sickest birds in need of immediate vet treatment to Dr Brauer. This action saved the lives of those parrots. Avian welfare advocates around the world stand behind them and encourage you to reach an amicable resolution by not bringing forth charges against this group of heroes.

      this is a travesty, and it sickens me to think the abuse/neglect of those parrots would be accepted & allowed. There would've been 10 more on the deceased list, had it not been for this incredible group of people. What message are we sending if we continue these charges against those who saved lives & turn the other cheek to the one who took lives? What kind of backwards thinking makes this ok? Please do the right thing, the humane thing, and drop the charges against Miami Valley Bird Club Rescue, Dr Brauer & the employees of Dayton Vet Clinic. Make a statement. End the nightmare those poor birds suffered for far too long... all alone. The correct recipient of charges being brought against him would be Ratcliff. He was the abuser/neglecter. He deserves the punishment, not the rescuers. Thank you.

      They helped *save* these birds. The charges against them are a travesty of justice.

      These birds were suffering in a desperate situation and the rescuers are the last people who should be charged.

      I can not believe that you are considering charging the vets and not the torturer of the birds, shame on you and the society that you are representing for allowing this. Shame...shame.
