Armchair Adoptions














Annabel is about 4-years old, midnight black, and beautiful. Some kind folks found her in the wild, severely crippled as a nestling. There seemed to be something wrong with her legs.


Unfortunately, they didn't bring her to a wildlife rehabilitator, but brought her home instead. Once she was ‘imprinted’ in this way, living with humans, it was no longer safe to put her back into the wild.


They loved Annabel though, and even took her to Renaissance Fairs to show her off. But when regulations were tightened regarding wild animals, and who could own them, they had to give her up.


She now lives at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and both of her legs were broken, and can’t be fixed.


But Annabel doesn’t let her disability get her down; this graceful beauty struts around on her knees!


When I saw Annabel’s picture and read about her, I decided to be one of her sponsors.


I’ve had a fondness for crows since I was a child, but the dreaded West Nile Virus has been devastating their population in my home state of Illinois.  I really miss their frequent visits to my back patio, and their extremely vibrant calls in the wind.  And I truly hope they can make a comeback here.


Annabel the Crow will now spend the rest of her days living peacefully at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah; a wonderful place that my wife and I have visited and volunteered a little time at.


There are at least 1,500 animals at this marvelous ‘no kill’ shelter in the beautiful red rock canyons of Utah at any given time – dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, mules, horses, and other assorted critters in need of tender loving care.


If you’re interested in learning about what other ‘special needs’ animals at Best Friends are looking for sponsors, please click on the link below.


Or, you may want to contact your own local animal shelter to inquire about their ‘Armchair Adoption’ Programs.  They would be delighted to hear from you; and so would the many unfortunate and abandoned creatures in their care.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, beautiful! crows (or, as we used to say in louisiana, "creaux" LOL) are wonderful, intelligent birds, and can be a great pet :) (remember in "rascal," the boy also had a pet crow as well as a dog and a skunk and a...he loved animals, too.)

(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :)

but why are they called a murder of crows? that's so negative

Our kitty HATES the crows in our backyard. She paces in front of the glass door, "barking" at them to go away!

There are plenty of crows here too Ed, if you want to restock your backyard maybe a trade of some kind can be arranged? I will check out that site, and check if there is some kind of program like that at the shelter that Rufuz came from...Peace thru Animal love, Ed & rufuz

wonderful that you are bringing this awareness to the public. You will be happy to hear that crows are doing extremely well in Ontario. Perhaps too well :-) Maybe we should send a few of them over the boarder? :-)

I love hearing the crows at dawn in the woods.

Such a beautiful bird, Ed and I, too, can attest to the lessened population of this wonderful creature in both my current home state of Texas and in my childhood home area of Ohio. It is truly a shame that the crows are given somewhat of a bad glance, due to West Nile, but it is not their fault. Thanks for sharing this story.

You always provide us with the best information and sites. Annabel is one lucky crow. I'm convinced. You must be one of Noah's ancestors.
