I live in Japan with my two pet cockatiels that I've owned for almost three years. I'll be returning to America in August, but the USDA has told me that 'because of avian influenza H5N1' they won't issue me an import permit. However, there is no H5N1 virus present in Japan, a fact that both the World Health Organization and the World Organization for Animal Health recognize.
Please help me by visiting my website at www.piperandkia.com where you can print out the form letter and mail it to the USDA to show your support. You can help further by spreading the word!
Please help Piper and Kiana go home.
